Social Activities

Social activities at monthly meeetings

Hanna cooking - reduced image.jpgAt our regular group meetings we  exchange the richness of our cultures in different ways.  At these meetings we often share traditional foods and exchange recipes and cooking tips. We like to talk about our own stories  and are open to sharing differences, beliefs and life styles commonly held.  At times, we invite speakers to help us to widen our experience and develop broader understanding of ourselves and others.  We enjoy shared leisure activities such as excursions to Manchester and other cities and into the beautiful countryside on our doorstep.  You are welcome to join us.
