Coffee Thursday

,

Are you feeling fed up, stressed, worried or overwhelmed?

If you feel it would help to talk to someone in a non-judgemental, safe space, then Coffee Thursday might be just what you need. Coffee Thursday is a free, monthly pop-in coffee morning, where you can take time out for a cuppa and a biscuit and have a chat, when you’re having a tough time. Health Trainer Donna will be there to meet you at this pop in coffee morning, where you can stay for as long or as little time as you like.

It can really help to say things out loud and get them off your chest, and Donna will be there to listen and give support and information on lots of issues that can get us down – health, money, relationships – or point you in the direction of someone who can.

Not sure it’s for you? Call in and see what you think. Everyone is welcome at this free monthly pop-in coffee morning. Starts Thursday 7 November, 10.30am to 12.30pm, in the Resource Room, next to Cafe @ Burn Lane.

Hand Massages by Rachel

,

Enjoy a relaxing hand massage at Café @ Burn Lane!

Our intern Rachel will be offering hand massages in the café every Thursday, from 11.00am to 12.00pm. Rachel is a trained beauty therapist and is looking forward to bringing this relaxing treatment to our customers.

A hand massage can improve health and wellbeing in lots of ways, including less anxiety, better mood, improved sleep and can also help with pain caused by arthritis and other conditions.

The massage will last approximately five minutes (both hands) and donations would be welcomed (suggested donations of a few pounds or whatever you can afford).
