Tai Ceredigion Group

We ran sessions with Tai Ceredigion‘s older people’s sheltered housing schemes on Friday 7th October 2016 and a Christmas session on the 12th December. We also ran a regular programme between April and November 2015 and we’re happy to be developing a new partnership with them this year; watch this space!
