Hi, Here's a new venture, we are starting up some free classes for various types of exercise and Mindfullness.

If you are in the right area use this link to the In Your Area part of our website, enter your region and see what is available. https://www.versusarthritis.org/in-your-area/

Everyone else, why not do the same and see what is going on near you?

If you are lucky enough to live in the region to get to one do let us know how it goes, hopefully they may be rolled out to the rest of the UK

I'll announce further ones as they arrive

Take care

Yvonne x
