Please note: All our support groups are free entry  (unless otherwise stated) - tea/coffee and light refreshments are served (no charge, but donations always welcome) and whilst children remain the responsibility of the person who has brought them at all times (we do NOT provide child care), there are always fun activities laid on for the children.
