Welcome to our new newsletter!

We are now entering a new era in Blue Triangle as we introduce our new website, develop an app for our service user questionnaires and embrace aspects of new technology. 
This also means some changes for the Blue Print.
The changes have been informed by service user consultation, ideas and suggestions put forward by staff, service users and ex-service users.
We will now have an online News Letter which we will put onto the website, send out to a mailing / subscription list. This will ensure a wider distribution list which will include past and present service users.
We aim to produce a Blue Print News Letter every 2 months initially. Service Users and Staff will now send the articles to Head Office. These can come in at any time and will be collated for the next publication. We would welcome any feedback on the newsletter going forward.
A night at the Panto!
Service Users and Staff from BTHA East Kilbride enjoyed a great day attending the Pantomime Dick Whittington at East Kilbride Arts Centre recently. 
We all had a great day and enjoyed ourselves. Service Users and Staff also had a lovely lunch which was provided by staff at the East Kilbride Arts Centre. The children particularly loved the Pantomime and threw themselves into the Christmas songs with great gusto. We certainly had plenty of Christmas cheer here at East Kilbride!!!!

A Hero in our mist.....
Attached is a copy of London Gazette article that mentions William Reid now a service user at Chalmers Court Ayr, when he was awarded  the Military Medal for Bravery while serving with the Royal Highland Fusiliers (Princess Margaret’s Own Glasgow & Ayrshire Regiment) while on tour in Northern Ireland in 1977.
William attended the Remembrance Sunday Parade in Ayr to pay his respects to fallen comrades, some who fought along side him during this conflict.

A lot learned...
Friday 18th December 2015
We went to The National Museum of Scotland with Steven, Lewis and my Key Worker Lewis.  We had a fantastic time looking about the museum and learning about a lot of things like the old fashioned clothes and the animals.  My favourite bit was the animal bit because I like animals.  I learned that I am good at working with other people, because we had fun and a good laugh with each other.  We had to send a wish to Tibet.  To do that we took a piece of paper and crayon on a stencil.  We had to rub the crayon over the stencil which made the picture of the animal on the paper.  Someone from the museum takes them, sends them to Tibet and they get dropped off the mountain.  I would like to do things like this again.

Making Soap!
We were making soap in the project.  It was a good laugh and something to do.  I got to spend time with other Service Users and my Key Worker.  We were making gifts for Christmas.  We melted wax in a pot, added fragrances and then poured it into moulds.  We then had to set it in the freezer for 20 minutes.  We had to get the soap out of the moulds and gift wrapped it in quilted cloth and then used ribbon to make it look good.
