Andy’s Man Club is a talking group, a place for men to come together in a safe environment to talk about issues/problems they be have faced or currently been facing. The benefit is there are other men who have been in similar situations and can help you with advice on how they have dealt with the situation. Some of our aims are to provide beneficial services, we will look at bringing in solicitors who can give advice about fathers seeing their children, running debt management classes for those with gambling addictions or money troubles as well as the possibility of anger management classes and even activity sessions ranging from sports like Rugby, Football, Basketball to walks and Fitness classes. Chat conversation end.

Every Monday, Hebden Bridge Town Hall 7pm.
