I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Anzac break.  For our household this meant the arrival of two new members to the family, Hazel on the left and Bristle on the right. I am talking about the cats, not my grandsons. They are very cute and have kept us entertained with their playful antics.

In January we organised a mindfulness workshop for our members with Psychologist, Anastasia Dailiani from the Anxiety Trust. Mindfulness is a helpful tool to learn, particularly in these uncertain and worrying times. It can be used for reducing anxiety and worries and to help us feel calmer and more relaxed.
