We have a small Community Library in the L A Cafe, where you can donate any books you like and don’t need. Likewise, borrow from it anything you want to. This is a combination of what used to be called the Transition Library (books with a green/spiritual/political/social slant), and the L A Cafe’s collection of novels.

Café therapy room:
From Monday 16th April, holistic therapist Sarah Britton will be offering the relaxing therapy of Reflexology. Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive therapy that helps to restore balance and harmony. It deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all parts of the body. By working on these areas reflexology helps to relieve stress and tension; improve blood supply and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses and helps to restore balance naturally.
Sarah will be here every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10.00 until 1:30 pm (term time only) offering 1/2 hour mini treatments (£20) and 1-hour full treatments (£35). You can either pop in on the day for an appointment or, if you prefer to book in advance to guarantee your appointment, then you can book online here.
For any questions, call Sarah on 07985 931131 or email: email@example.com.
Gilly is a very experienced and friendly Holistic massage and Reiki practitioner who offers a 15-minute treatment for £10, a 30-minute treatment for £20 and a 60-minute treatment for £35. This could help ease back, shoulder, neck or head pain or just refresh or revitalise you! Do just drop in.
For more information, you can contact Gilly on 07950405234 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
