News & Events 24th March ’16

Mon 28th March – Last Monday of the Month Meet – Belmont Cinema Café from 6pm 

This is a new venture by ABpositive for 2016 in response to people asking about where they can find out about what’s going on.  Each last Monday of the month some of the ABpositive board will be in the café bar at the Belmont to chat about whatever people want to – what’s on, project ideas, connections, funding, possible events, issues – you name it.  No agenda – just a time to meet and chat.
