The aim and purpose of the meeting:

The format will be warm, welcoming, and relaxed. There will be no obligation or expectation to talk about yourself, your health or your experiences of HSP. Just come along for a chat, cuppa and some cake. There will be an opportunity for families and carers to head off to explore the playground and zoo area (it’s great) and the HSPers can either go along or stay for a chat. It will be flexible and we’ll just see what folk fancy doing!

Basic refreshment will be covered by the charity, however visitors will be required to pay entry to the estate (see admission fees below or contact Tom Bell if the expense is an issue and we’ll help! If you just want to come to the café then we can ask about free entry). More substantial sustenance can be bought from the café if required.
