A SKIPTON-based group which sees members travel from all over the north to discuss life issues and share opinions has gone from strength to strength, say organisers.

Conscious Cafe meets monthly at Broughton Hall, at the new Avalon Centre for Wellbeing, and now has more than 100 regular attenders, said local organiser Gina Lazenby. She said the Cafe is:”A really vibrant discussion group attracting people willing to reflect and share on issues that are important to all of us, like relationships, making a new start, finding work you love, and creating connection. It’s very participatory and people say they appreciate the warm atmosphere we have created. People are craving the opportunity for thoughtful dialogue and to have their opinions and feelings shared and heard by others. Events can be booked online via Conscious Cafe Skipton Facebook page or the Meetup site. All are welcome.”
