Participants should be able to walk a short distance independently.

The sessions will run on Wednesday’s from 10.30am – 2.30pm for five weeks from 25 August to 22 September. Participants will need to bring their own lunch.

It takes place at Headway Suffolk’s hub in Olding Road, Bury St Edmunds, which is located near to Asda. Some sessions will be run outdoors at local parks.
