An open invitation to our BradTog MHM Drop Ins
It was good to meet Bradninch Friends on Friday 18th March, an opportunity to talk freely over Zoom about what we really hope is a positive approach to mental heath in our community.
We are keen to continue this informal mutual support and relaxed conversation in this period of limbo before we can meet face to face.
We invite you to drop into some Zoom chats on the evenings of Wednesdays – May 5th and June 9th between 8.00pm and 9.00pm.
Please use this Zoom link below for both meetings.
