Connect Up

We have an NMC Facebook Group called 'NMC Online with Connect Up'. It is a closed group for anyone from the NMC Community.

www.facebook.com/groups/NMCOnline/

If you're not on social media, you can still join in. For details please email Sarah or Elly at connectup@nmcentre.com

or Ali : alison-evans@nmcentre.com

You could also call us on 01606 860911.

NeuroMuscular Centre is not building or a physio treatment... it is a community. Connect Up represents the best of this: connection, support and friendship.

 

We want to expand on the wonderful group that already exists and welcome the whole of the NMC Community. We have a varied programme of tutorials, videos, online groups, meetings and games where we can come together and ensure that self isolation and social distancing doesn't negatively impact the fantastic relationships that we have built, and the amazing community spirit that is so rich at NMC.

 

Connect Up Online is a platform to share fun, ideas, experiences and skills to keep our community together and to help each other through this difficult time and beyond!

 

If you would like any advice on how to set up a Facebook account, join a Zoom meeting or have any questions then please get in touch and we will try to assist.

We also have produced a handy Zoom User Guide (opens as a pdf)

Read and Connect is an exciting way of people connecting through books.

We meet on the first Friday of each month. Usually at NMC but currently via zoom with some zoom / socially distanced meetings at NMC when possible.

  • Our next meeting will be Friday 4th June 2021 at 11:30am via Zoom and in the NMC Marquee.

This month we've chosen 2 books:

  • The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John Le Carre

The zoom link will be posted in our Read and Connect facebook group or please let us know if you would like the link emailing to you

https://www.facebook.com/groups/308341067287532

 

If you have a library card there is the option to 'borrow' an e-book from your local library for 2-3 weeks. All library services are arranging this slightly differently. 

Please feel free to join us and read either or both books. If you can't make it to the meeting but would still like to be involved you can always e-mail any thoughts to share with the group.
