A NEW women’s group open to all across Barnsley is set to host its first session later this month.

Run by Grace Steadman and a number of other volunteers, locals are being encouraged to attend the first session at Kexborough Methodist Church on Wednesday, June 26 between 9.15am and 10.15am.

Grace said the group will be a safe and inclusive space for women to talk about anything they wish to - including the menopause, anxiety, financial worries and forms of abuse.

She said: “The group is a safe space for all ages of women to talk openly about anything.

“It’s not a counselling service, it’s a calm environment to talk.

“Tea and coffee will be provided but please bring your own cakes.

“The sessions will take place every Wednesday morning from 9.15am to 10.15am and the first session is on June 26 at the Methodist church.

“The group is for people from any area not just Kexborough.”
