About this Event
We all need spaces to talk, share our day to day challenges and successes. Come through to this monthly circle, focused on building bonds of sisterhood and connecting in a sisters only space. In this monthly group, we’ll discuss themes of what it means to be a woman, a sister, a friend, a mother, or a daughter. Join us and spread the word!
