Welcome to 2017! Wee Read has had a longish holiday and we’ve been busy with a new grandchild for Christine, and adapting to a house move.
I thought I would keep you up to date with what is happening now.
What we are doing now:
Wee Read@Lanark Writing Group, at Esteem Clydesdale 38 Greenside Lane, Lanark ML11 7PY. We meet on Wednesday afternoons from 2pm-3.30pm. Christine is leading this group but due to the distance of travel to Lanark from Glasgow, is looking at getting support in co-leading it.This is a voluntary position, however it offers a chance for practising with a peer mentor.If you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com 07952 982868
WeeRead@Stonehouse Hope Cafe, St. Ninian’s Church, Vicars Road, Stonehouse ML9 3EB.
Fortnightly meetings on Thursdays from 11 am-12.30
(Please note that due to refurbishment there are no meetings in January 2017)
Adrian leads a reading group with a spiritual context, with discussion on the big issues, of life, death, and living well.
Christine also does a monthly expressive writing group at The Maggie’s, for anyone who has been affected by cancer. It is usually on the first Tuesday of the month, from 1-3 pm.For January and February 2017, it will be on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, 10th January and 14th February.
