Carers lunch

Popped into the Appletree Centre to meet a few carers and others who are trying to provide a support service to carers. Quite lively discussion with a lady called Betty who wanted to invite Tony Blair to land his helicopter in the field next to her house so that she could tell him what she thought of him. She also claimed that "Tony always went north and never south" but I have not had a chance to find out whether this statement is remotely true.

Biggest problem raised apart form Tony Blair was the problem with finding adequate respite care and the difficulties in finding a route through what is a very complex system.
