Session Cancellation – January 2022

Due to concerns about the Omicron variant of Covid, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our Win on Waste sessions in January 2022.

With the NHS working hard to look after us, we have no wish to add to their workload by encouraging people to gather at our sessions, so we will pause in January with the aim of sessions returning in February when the picture is clearer.

Thank you so much for your understanding.
