Wednesday 17 June 2020 7.30pm. This will be the 2nd in our series “High Town and Beyond” where we discuss the high street as not just an economic retail area, much in need of evolving as it is, but also as a vital invaluable social hub. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82580892902?pwd=SEFDZ1E3RGhxeGkzSC9jNHh0OVVDQT09 Meeting ID: 825 8089 2902 Password: 300264

A new initiative! “Mindfulness in the Time of Covid” started up recently. A session that will provide a way of coping with Covid through mindfulness, giving you the opportunity to nurture your resilience.  This Mindfulness Space is open to all those wishing to benefit from learning to manage the daily concerns and uncertainties we are living with. Mindfulness helps us to be more resilient, engaging both the mind and the body, it provides us with the space to be at ease with ourselves, to cope as best we can with the challenges we are currently dealing with. Each session will be led by Franca Lane, a Mindfulness Teacher, working in schools, the NHS and MBCT-Spain. Franca has a background of working in mental health (both charities and the NHS) and has been practicing mindfulness since the 1990’s. The next session, third, is 7.30 pm on Tuesday 2 June 2020 https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89412351873?pwd=UFhKcnBFYUs0em1IamtXQ3VacE5Mdz09 Meeting ID: 894 1235 1873Password: 045982
