Looks like a great line up, something for everything.I am looking forward to the day.


What a brilliant line up, indeed there is something for us all, I am cvertainly looking forward to it.


Just to say also with the parallel sessions both will include a mindfulness practice.

Hi girls. Will miss this one and am hopeful that it will be possible to see the videos on u-tube. Was told I could take a short holiday (badly needed) and have to work around kids midterm break. Disappointed not to meet some friendly faces again but maybe at the next coffee morning. Hope ye all enjoy the day  - the line up looks great. X

Hi Missfitz, If the doctor said you can take a well deserved break go for it. It will be lovely to spend some quality time with your family. I'm sure the Patients Day will be on u -tube. Have a great time .  Kittie.🛄👪
