Weekly News - 26th August 2020

Welcome to the Sunshine and Smiles weekly newsletter! This is where you will find all our upcoming events and news.

*please note, this newsletter is for the next 2 weeks.

Given the government guidance regarding social distancing we have temporarily suspended all our groups, face to face sessions, activities and closed 21 Co. Shop & Café.

We are looking at ways to re-start our groups and re-open the cafe and will update you as soon as possible. 

Some of our sessions are available online. Please see the events calendar on our website to see what's on. 

We are still available by telephone and email for advice, support and signposting – please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time:
