Event Success

The 2nd Arts Health and Wellbeing Fairs was held at St Mary’s Complex on Saturday and had a great turn out with lots of new visitors trying and sampling local services and products. Among the contributors was local optician Jonny Goggles who gave away free eye tests and local learning venue Rotunda who provided a very engaging demonstration session of Qui Gong. The day was a huge success and the word has definitely spread for the main event on Saturday August 28th.
