*Why is it called dinner & chat?
Dinner & Chat is the name given to the monthly gathering of heterosexual men – when COVID19 restrictions didn’t apply. We’d eat a meal together, share experiences of living with HIV, and support each other. At the 2018 adult’s retreat, the men and women decided it would be great to open dinner & chat to women on particular occasions. In June 2019, a “mixed dinner & chat” saw over 20 women and heterosexual men come together to hear a talk about HIV and nutrition delivered by a dietician. This event follows that tradition. This year we won’t be located together eating delicious catering, but please bring something to drink, and something yummy to feast or snack upon while we chat to Mark and Judith.
