Wales – we’re coming for you! Our first Welsh meet up group in the gorgeous city of Cardiff…
Thursday 18 June, 6pm @ Zoom
We are loving getting to know our Cardiff meet up group, even if it has to be virtually! As always, please feel to switch of your camera if you’d prefer not to be seen and no pressure to share anything. We know this meet up is really close to Father’s Day and so may be a really difficult time for many of you. Get comfy, chuck on some pjs and bring a cuppa and snacks if you like. The Zoom link will be posted on the Facebook group nearer the time. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to Chelsie and Josie via email on firstname.lastname@example.org – they are always happy to chat!
