Talking Together – Would you like an opportunity to chat to other members? Feedback from recent courses we have held, has often been that the time to chat part of the session was really valued – having an opportunity to share with others experiences and tips or just to offload to others who understand. We have therefore planned  “Talking Together” sessions. Sessions will be facilitated by Janet but led by you. Some sessions Azra or Lorna may join. Sessions will be held on Mondays at 2pm starting on Monday 18 January.
If you would like to find out more, or to book a place, please  email or ring Janet Hickman on 07866 331782.
