We all need a bit of help sometimes, but learning about our health helps us to make better decisions about our care. Whatever state of health you’re in, there’s always something you can do to help yourself, and learning to make your own medicine from our native herbs is a truly magical experience. So here’s what’s coming up over the next few months in the way of training and events. Keep checking back, or join our mailing list to find out about new events.
‘Wellbeing on Wednesday’
Free monthly talks at Perton Civic Centre, South Staffordshire
I run free community health talks supported by Lakeside Medical Centre in South Staffordshire, called ‘Wellbeing on Wednesday’ They run from 7.30-9.00 in the Airman’s lounge at Perton Civic Centre, usually on the last Wednesday of every month. We take suggestions for topics from our local community, so there’s something for everyone, and our speakers kindly give their time free of charge. It’s a great way of learning new ways to help yourself to better health, and all are welcome. Details of forthcoming talks and how to book your place are below.
Whatever your health aspirations are for 2019, our experts will help you off to a flying start. We’ll be joined by Hypnotherapist Steve Woods, who’ll be talking about mindset, and Nutritionist Mel Wakeman will be giving us tips on healthy eating. Bring your notebook and go home with everything you need to get super healthy. You’ll find us in the Airman’s Lounge at 7.30.

We’ll be meeting in the car park at Comer Woods on the Dudmaston Estate at 9.30, where we’ll go and collect our herbs from the meadow. From there we’ll take the short drive to Dudmaston Hall where we’ll spend the rest of our day making medicines and learning how to use them safely.
