MP cuts tinsel ribbon on group's new home

MEMBERS of a Down Syndrome support group celebrated moving to new premises with a visit from Tracy Brabin.

The new Batley and Spen MP cut the ceremonial tinsel as the Yorkshire Down Syndrome Group settle into life at Spark Skills on Providence Street, Batley after moving from Healey Community Centre and welcomed Ms Brabin with a Christmas party on Saturday.

The group was set up by local parents who felt there was little advice available when their children were diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

Clare Ellarby, who helps run the group with Karen Dorr, said: “We were honoured to have Tracy with us. She is an inspirational person, she was amazing with the children and they loved her.”

For more info call Clare on 07522 120532 or Karen on 07711 982373.  They are on Facebook as YorkshireDown-SyndromeGroup or see @YorksDSG on Twitter. The next meeting is on Saturday January 7.
