Along with the activities arranged by our groups, we have other drop-in sessions, events and meetings. Some of these groups were online during Covid, however we are now giving members the opportunity to take part in more in-person sessions. Some virtual sessions will continue.
Due to demand, booking for all events is essential, so please call the office on 0121 525 4810 or email email@example.com.
