Monk’s Yard Event Health & Wellbeing Event April ’19

We had an excellent Health & Wellbeing event this week at Monk’s Yard, Ilminster. With a full house of attendees the discussion groups and activities were thoroughly enjoyed & plenty of learning too. Discussion groups included the Department of Work & Pensions; Peer support groups & relationships and learning about opportunities in your community. Joyce Passmore gave a talk on her amazing personal journey of HOPE afer spending 15years in Tone Vale. We also had the pleasure of Sgt Rob Jameson joining us to learn more about our invaluable community group. Sgt Jameson also joined in the Laughter Yoga & was spirited enough to let us share his photos! Our next event is in Winsham on Wednesday 5th June – do please ask for more information & join us. This event was funded by Somerset Skills and Learning.

Group conversation – all about sharing experience & learning.
Joyce Passmore giving her inspirational talk.
Joyce’s experience is inspirational, how one lady lived with hope & kept fighting – not a dry eye in the room.
Sgt Jameson joining in the Laughter Yoga – if you’ve not tried it yet, you really are missing out!
