AGM 2016 Feedback

AGM 2016 Feedback

Service users enjoyed the day and felt the AGM was very well organised.

The food was lovely.

Lots of people of all generations attended and enjoyed the music provided by RSVP, esp. lead singer Dildar Singh

The guest speakers (Mohammed El Sharif and Councillor Afzal Shah) both gave very good speeches and some of the guests also spoke on the day to praise the work of Dhek Bhal and congratulate the members and organisation on its Thirtieth year celebration.

The staff were very helpful in looking after all the guests, especially the elderly and vulnerable members who needed extra assistance during breaks and lunch time.

The transport to and from the venue for the elderly and vulnerable was well organised.

Overall service users enjoyed the AGM and are looking forward to the next one.
