NEWS

Our festive meal was somewhat marred by our chairman, Bob Foster, being taken to hospital the previous weekend. Although he’s now home, he will need an operation in the New Year, so we wish him a speedy recovery.

Otherwise, Christmas lunch at Tittesworth was good, as ever.

Self-help art group: Thurs 10.30-12.30. All welcome.

Writing group member Dave will shortly be working as a voluntary peer educator with Staffordshire Police. He will give talks in e.g. hostels about recreational drugs and their links to long-term mental health problems.

We thank Leek Town Lands for supporting writing and art.
