A BIG Thank You

Both Phil and I would like to thank everyone for all the messages and support and beautiful flowers I received last month. Unfortunately I had contracted Oral Shingles which went from my eyes to my brain causing me to suffer from a stroke. I am in the progress of making a full recovery and am back working at Sophia's albeit part time for a while. The cards and messages sent to me meant a great deal and had both Phil and me in tears as everyone was so thoughtful. Also the team at Sophia's deserves a big thank you, especially Nicki Batchelor who came out of retirement for a week!


When I had my stroke I was unable to use the right side of my body. My face, arm and legs were all paralysed. The training I had received at Sophia's and knowledge and advice from Michele about keeping my body moving in the correct way, enabled a quicker recovery.

Although some people may recover quite quickly, many people who have a stroke will need long-term support to help them manage any difficulties they have and regain as much independence as possible.

This process of rehabilitation will be specific to you, and will depend on your symptoms and their severity. If you would like to talk with either Michele or myself about rehabilitation or any issues concerning a stroke then please contact us at Sophia's.

Paula's stroke advice. Do not shave your legs in the shower whilst on blood thinning tablets or it will look like Norman Bates has attacked you!

I would like to thank EVERYONE who helped and supported us on the 1st April. The Gymnastics Club had a fund raising event, which involved the team vaulting for 8 minutes and each of the gymnasts collecting sponsors. There was also a raffle and many prizes were donated by local businesses, and many of the gymnasts and parents baked cakes. We also had a very a very generous cheque from the Independent Theatre Group. It was a successful day and I can confirm we managed to raise 2,228.44 euros. This is absolutely incredible!! This money will be going towards a competition sized beam, matting and maybe some other equipment, which is to be decided!

These are unclaimed raffle prize numbers:

On white tickets: 158, 455, 254, 154, 291
