On Sunday 27 April 2013, Lodge Kirknewton and Ratho 85 hosted the parents and children of the Borders Additional Needs Group as they made their annual visit to the Seagull Trust to enjoy a leisurely cruise along the union canal at Ratho. The Lodge, once again, was privileged to host this group on their special day providing Tea, Coffee and Juice.
The parents, children and grandparents enjoyed their day in Ratho and the Lodge would to thank B.A.N.G for the lovely card and tin of biscuits given to the Lodge as token of their appreciation, they can be assured that the biscuits were thankfully received and will be faithfully applied by the brethren of the Lodge.
The Borders Additional Needs Group was founded in May 2006, by a local health visitor and 4 parents to establish a parent run support group that would allow children with additional, rare or complex needs and their families and carers to meet and support each other.
This group has members with recognised disorders such as Autism, ADHD, and Downs Syndrome. They also have members with rare conditions - Charge Syndrom, and they have members with diagnosis.
They have no criteria for membership and are open to all parts of the community. Their meetings and activities are for the whole family, parents, carers, siblings and grandparents as a special need has an impact on the whole family.
