Community Connection events

It's good to talk. Our community connection events will hopefully include something to interest everybody. So please feel free to join us for a chat.

We are holding the group telephone and online calls listed below and everyone is welcome. For further information and joining details on any of these calls, please contact [email protected] or phone 07821 810955

Alongside these, as lockdown eases, some of our groups are starting to meet up again in person outdoors, although still following social distancing guidelines.
