Shared Reading

  Menopause Shared Reading

    Most of us forget to take proper breaks from work and this can be detrimental for our wellbeing.

  One way of relaxing and taking a break from your usual day is to join our Shared Reading session on Thursday 21st October 2021, 1pm. Bring your lunch, your cup of tea, join the Teams meeting and listen as we read an extract from ‘Older and Wider' by Jenny Eclair.
