Talking about Loss – new group starting July 2016

Have you suffered a loss? Don’t sit at home alone. A new series of informal support starts in July with an experienced Bereavement Counsellor. Come and share your experiences with others in a safe and secure place. Learn about the grieving process and develop strategies for coping and moving forward.

The group will run on Tuesdays, 10.30am – 12 noon. Please call 01273 688117 for more information and to book a place.

NEW! Craft and card making workshops – next workshop : Monday 15th August

Workshops will take place on the 3rd Monday of every month 2.30 – 3.30 at Patching Lodge.

Dates for your diary:  September 19th / October 17th / November 21st.
