Weekly Sessions

As we are hoping to be moving to our new building in September, we are having a relatively quiet summer. We look forward to seeing you then for more creativity, learning and friendship. Sessions which will be running throughout the summer holidays include Place of Welcome from 9.30-11.00 every Wednesday and Artful Minds, from 10.00-midday each Friday.
