Sidcup/Canterbury

A friend of mine who creates wonderful soya candles and well-being products is organising some beautiful 2/3 day retreats at a gorgeous house and grounds near Canterbury. The aim is to destress and you can do as much (or as little) as you wish. What a great thing for our mental health. The one I was interested in is almost booked up but if there is a lot of interest she would look to try and organise one just for us either this year if availability or next year. She needs a minimum of 10 people and a maximum of 16. If you are interested please PM with your phone number and email address and I can give you more details. I have put Sidcup as that is where I live but the event is in Canterbury
