Monthly Update

January 2015

The January newsletter has been online and in post boxes for a few weeks now but there just hasn’t been time to write and send this email.   If you’d like know as soon as the next newsletter is published online, please subscribe to our blog: you’ll receive an email notification whenever we post a new offer or publish a new edition online (we don’t blog, so you won’t get lots of emails!)

If you want to get a little more exercise this year, we’re looking for people to take part in three new classes. If you’re interested in them or have any other ideas for classes, offers or activities HASSRA could offer, please contact me or Phil (addresses below).
