We are aware that attending the Conference can be expensive. To help offset some
of these costs, MDSG is offering to pay half the hotel costs for Bed and Breakfast
for Friday night 15 June 2018.
This means you will pay £48.50 for a single occupancy and £53.50 for a double
This offer applies to one night only Friday 15 June 2018 and only if you stay at the
Oxford Belfry Hotel.
You will still need to book directly with the Hotel on 0845 074 0060
and quote Myotonic Dystrophy Support Group Conference when booking.
This offer is from MDSG NOT the Hotel. You will need to pay the cost of the room,
give the receipt to Mike Walker or send it in to the office by 31 July 2018 and
MDSG will reimburse the difference up to the conference rate as stated above.
PLEASE READ THESE NOTES CAREFULLY
1. Booking forms must be returned by Tuesday 29 May 2018. Numbers
and the logistics of catering and seating in the syndicate rooms, is arranged in
advance of the Conference.
2. We cannot guarantee that you and your party will be able to sit together at the
meal times. There are only ten chairs around each table.
3. Provided there are sufficient numbers to warrant employing qualified staff to run
it, there will be a creche. This must be pre-booked. If numbers are low, then a
room will be set aside for you or someone of your choosing to look after your child.
In that instance you would be responsible for your child.
4. The programme this year will follow similar lines to last year and include three
sessions of workshops. We would like to encourage all delegates young and old to
attend all or some of these workshops. There will be a variety of topics and the
smaller groups are less intimidating.
5. The Young Adults will have a separate programme. Please book early.
Numbers may have to be restricted. Please notify the MDSG at time of booking of
any special needs provision that will be necessary. If you wish to discuss these
sessions prior to booking please contact Elycia Ormandy on 0161 445 5844.
