Sue Watson, Manager of Options Recovery College, said: “We are very excited about this move which means that local people can now benefit from the recovery courses in a more convenient location.

“Since moving into our new location on January 12, we’ve held a number of sessions and received very positive feedback. People attending have told us that the building is nice and relaxed and just one bus journey away. Being located in the town centre means that even more people can benefit from the self-help and knowledge gained.”
