I came to my first Space coffee morning today. Thank you so much – it was wonderful to be able to get together with others going through the same things.


Email received from recent speaker:

I thoroughly enjoyed coming to SPACE and meeting you all.  Such a wonderful group full of lovely people and always feel most at home with other parents. Thank you for making me feel so welcome and I’d be honoured to come back next year.

“Thank you so much for yesterday – it was extremely helpful for me. I’d really like to come along to more. I’m not sure if I can make it for the next date, but I look forward to seeing you in the New Year and I will have a look at the Facebook page too.

Many many thanks”  (from a mum who came for the first time)
