What happens at Renew HG1?

It's really up to you in terms of what you want to take part in, but at every session, there will always be:

  • a warm welcome and friendly smile for you

  • free tea, filter coffee and treats for you to enjoy 

  • a quiet area if you just want to reflect

  • books and newspapers to read 

  • colouring or a craft to have a go at if you’re feeling creative

  • puzzles and games if you want to test your brain 

  • someone to listen if you do want to chat 

  • the opportunity to take part in a short 10 minute reflection time
