Notice is hereby given of an Extraordinary General Meeting on Wednesday 4 November 2015 at 7.30pm in the Disabled Drivers Association headquarters 58-60 Duncrue Street, Belfast BT3 9AC (which is in The Dale Farm complex).
The sole item on the agenda is approval of a revised constitution. Our current constitution was passed in 1962 and now over 50 years later needs updated to reflect the current aims and objectives of the Fellowship. The need for change was highlighted during discussions with The Charities Commission concerning the registration of the Fellowship and when trying to source grants to assist the Fellowship in looking after the needs of members.
All available members are asked to attend.

|(19/9/2015) Death of John Shortt |
It is with much regret the Fellowship announces the death of our member John Shortt. Shortty as he was known was a very active member of the Fellowship in the 1960s. He was a regular at the swimming in Ormeau Baths and the weekly trips to Polio House and went on all the outings and parties which Mr Rankin organised at this time. He was particularly friendly with Jim Bailie, Billy Nesbitt, Christine Martin (now Connolly) and Breige Smith (now Torrans).
John immigrated to Australia and had a very full life there and was back in touch recently with Jim Bailie through facebook. He had been ill for sometime. He was in his late fifties and will be sadly missed my his wife children and grandchildren.
Sincere sympathy from all his friends in the NIPF to his family circle.
