A massive thanks to all the local businesses who set up stall for a lively health and beauty evening at our monthly meeting last night. A large turnout by members ensured a great buzz around the room all evening. It looked and sounded as if everybody, members and demonstrators alike, really enjoyed themselves. We had something to cater for all interests, from podiatry to hairdressing, Clarins and Velvet Rooms beauty, nails and massage, seated yoga and stretchy band exercises. Hopefully everyone went home fitter, calmer, and more beautiful!
