May news....

Last month’s meeting saw us learning the art of needle felting with Juliet Fleming and from the results, we are a pretty talented bunch.

This month, we are lucky to have two speakers, both of which will give us the feel good factor.  Cat Taylor from Nudge Fit will be talking to us about Psychological Self Defence - Evidence based tips, techniques and challenges on how to increase your happiness.  Cat is an Occupational Therapist and Personal Trainer specialising in mental health, positive psychology and wellbeing. Having worked for a number of years in adult and young people’s mental health organisations, Cat is now embarking on a freelance career developing her own unique brand of personal training and life coaching, enabling people to nudge their way to happiness.

Our second speaker is Helen Mackie, Community Event Fundraiser for Jessie May, a Children's Hospice at Home service caring for local terminally ill children.  Jessie May supports families and children with life limiting conditions by providing vital respite care, emotional support, end of life care, and bereavement.  Helen will talk to us about the work of Jessie May and share some their families’ stories.

As summer is here, we are in the process of finalising our summer outing in July.  It promises to be a meeting with a view!

Come along on Wednesday 31st and find out more!
