Mervyn Edwards Green Door History 4 Health Programme 2018

 

Green Door History 4 Health Events

Mervyn Edwards can now announce the Green Door History 4 Health Project programme for 2017-18. This is a part lottery-funded scheme organised in conjunction with Stoke-on-Trent City Council. As last year, this programme offers a chance to improve your health and wellbeing whilst learning more about the history of the local area. Feedback from last year's walks suggests that patrons found the service uplifting in providing fascinating historical information in a friendly atmosphere.

All begin promptly at 11 am and last approx. 60 minutes, followed by an opportunity to chat afterwards. They offer patrons a chance to learn more about our local history at the same time as enjoying good company.

From August 2017 admission is £2 on the day, or you can buy a year membership covering all Green Door low cost activities for £7.50. Contact Green Door on 07824 473432 or info@green-door.org.uk for more information.
