“Actually the sessions have been brilliant. I’ve got zoom fatigue and would definitely not be showing up to everything if they weren’t short of excellent!”

 


An absolutely brilliant way to connect with a wonderful community during this time. The welcome is warm and genuine and the learning is incredibly valuable.


I find [them] so enjoyable and beneficial to my wellbeing.”
