WELCOME COLETTE, NEW ASC WORKER

We welcome the appointment of a new ASC worker Colette Hampson, working out of Northorpe Hall.  Colette has been working closely with us and delivered one workshop at an open meeting held in the town centre.  Obviously meetings are on hold in the present situation but an up to date message is below:

Whilst we’re no longer running groups, we can offer telephone support.
