|Friday||1:00pm-2:00pm||Stretch Therapy – Directions for Men Our biggest obstacle in regards to physical limitations is related to flexibility and a lack of mobility from poor sitting and breathing habits. Because of this emotions and feelings can become trapped right across the body which has a direct effect on the equanimity of our mind. So stretching is used as a method to explore and address those trapped physical mental and emotional problems. Get in touch on 07894971434 or at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can answer any questions about what happens in the sessions. You don’t need to be referred – just turn up! No charge.|

As well as being able to keep in touch with loved ones, there are all kinds of group meetings and events taking place over Zoom. During the Covid19 restrictions, video services such as Zoom have been used to allow virtual gatherings and 121s where physical distancing would otherwise mean these would be cancelled. Below is a list of some online activities our partners are running.
Here at the Broomwood Community Wellbeing Centre we are offering free 121 support to show you how to use Zoom, or any other video call tools, and help get you set up. If you don’t have your own device or internet connection, you can book one of our computers free of charge and we’ll get you up and running.
Call 0161 980 0720 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to book a free 121 session. Available Monday – Friday 10am – 2pm.

SEED Studios – Found Around
With the uncertainty surrounding lockdown measures right now, our community will be experiencing different things: some returning to normal; others to a different life than the one they had before lockdown; others not leaving lockdown at all.
We are encouraging our community to record and share their creative responses to their everyday lives right now. We wish to unite our community in this time in a project that will allow them all to share reflections on their life over the past few months and now.
You don’t need fancy equipment, or music production skills, you could use a phone, tablet or any microphone. All you need to do is record something that reflects your life over the past few months and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your creative responses will be used in musical compositions by artists commissioned exclusively for this project, as well as being featured in our ‘Found Around’ online exhibition.
Found Around is supported by the Arts Council England Covid-19 Emergency response fund. Check https://www.facebook.com/seedstudiostrafford for more info.
