5th March 2024 – Winchester – Chill & Chat Evening

This evening was a lovely Chill and Chat evening – a chance for us all to catch up with everyone’s news over a cuppa and biscuits!

Some of our members are having active treatment at hospital, some are experiencing and learning to manage the side effects of their ongoing hormone treatments and some have moved on with their lives post cancer, but are happy to come along and share their experiences and advice to the new members.

We normally meet here on the first Tuesday of the month and we also meet in Eastleigh (Chandlers Ford) on the third Tuesday of the month. 

This support group is open to anyone affected by cancer (doesn’t matter what type of cancer). Run by survivors for survivors, this group aims to offer a safe environment for those affected by cancer to get together over a cup of tea/ coffee and chat! Our About Us page gives more information on the group.

You are free to come and go to our meetings as you wish and we look forward to seeing you! Please feel free to call us or fill in our contact form if you’d like to have a chat first. We also have a Whatsapp group which you can join if you’d like to chat more or ask questions of the other members; just email us your mobile number and we’ll add you to the Whatsapp group. If you’re in the Whatsapp group already, you can let us know if you’re coming along on there.

28th June 2023 Longstock Water Gardens and Leckford Farm Cafe

Once again, we were grateful to have access to the beautiful Longstock Water Gardens and Leckford cafe for a day out with some of our group members. 

During the hot spell of weather we had in June, we were lucky to have chosen one of the less hot days and we enjoyed an hour of wandering around the beautiful, peaceful water gardens, with a little shade from the trees, waterlillies in bloom, plants with beautiful flowers and foliage, and ducks sleeping on the grass. 

We followed this with a cream tea in the Cherry Tree Cafe which is in the Longstock Park Cafe grounds. Superbly waited on by Karen and her team who brought the refreshments out to us in the Cherry Tree Cafe.  

We then had a look around the Walled Nursery Gardens where you can walk the stunning 80m herbaceous border and this walled garden is also home to the Buddleja and Clematis collections with a Clematis archway running through the centre.   A quick shopping trip in the Leckford Farm Shop and the Garden Nursery Shop completed our day before heading home.

Here are some of the many photographs from our day out and we are already looking forward to going next year.
