What’s New Pussycat?

Topic for Today - What’s New Pussycat?

Today we are piloting a new series of zoom based workshops and discussion groups to refresh what people have been able to do over the last few months.  Mondays see a new Pen and Pencil group for anything creative.  You don’t have to have experience or even share what you create if you don’t want to.  We can set you some tasks to get you going or you can work on your own things, you can even just hang out to chat and see what other people are up to.

Wednesday brings two groups, a return of our Stockton Writer Group that marks them reuniting and carrying on with their great work.  We will hope to share some of what they produce soon - as long as they agree of course. We know you will be impressed, they have written and created amazing things in the past and we are sure they will be delighted to all be back together again.

Wednesday afternoon also has the new and improved Relaxation and Mindfulness group.  You can just come along to listen and find out more, but if you like it you can join in on some seriously calming exercises to help us find a little more peace in our often challenging lives.

Our fourth group is a lovely Drop in and Chat group, a conversation based group for those who would just like to meet up with others and share your time and your stories.  A chance to check in and to make new friends - get yourself a cuppa and pull up a chair for some friendly chat in a relaxed space.

If you want to join in then please contact our main reception number and ask for Lewis or Becky on 01429 269303 and they will help you with more information and how to get involved.

New physical distance walking groups will be starting soon so let us know if that is something you would enjoy too.  These will be park based to allow for those with limited mobility or access issues - all welcome, and actual groups within our buildings will also be starting in July and we will update on this once details are confirmed

And if you have ideas for groups you would like to do but don’t appear here, then get in touch and tell us about those things too, perhaps you could be a new volunteer with us - it's a great way to learn, make new friends, help yourself and help others.

Remember, getting involved, building connections and helping other people is one of the best ways to wellbeing so go on, take a risk, start an adventure and get involved…

Ok, well that’s us for today - See you soon…

Please let us know if there is anything you would like us to cover in future blog posts, but most of all Stay Safe, Well, Creative, Connected and KIND!


Please don’t go out unless entirely necessary (i.e. for food basics), keep a safe distance (2 meters) from the other people around (more if someone is running or cycling). Keep smiling, waving and talking. Wash hands and avoid touching faces when out and about. 

Anything we can do to stop and slow the virus is keeping more of us safe and literally saving lives. 

If you have symptoms, stay inside and contact 111 or the website to get more advice.

If you have any other health concerns please do call your doctors, they are still open and you are not “bothering” them if you need to speak about something going on for you right now. COVID-19 is a terrible thing but other health problems are also a priority - call your GP and check it out!
