Mental Health Stigma Quiz

The next business breakfast on Wednesday 22nd February will feature the Heads Up project’s year raising the profile of mental health issues across the borough. To make things interesting we’ll be finding out about attitudes to mental health through a quiz on stigma. Its a very revealing exercise and I’m sure will be rewarding.

If you’d like to do the quiz here are the questions;

History of Hesters Way

Many of the photos and historical information we have used over the years in our descriptions of the local area, our funding applications and on this website have been provided by the tireless contributors to the History of Hesters Way

These five volumes provide a fantastic insight into the development and change in the west of Cheltenham and are a small price to pay for the plethora of intriguing stories, rare photographs, maps and documents offered inside.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Chris Green, former resident and employee of Hesters Way Neighbourhood Project for all the hard work that went into editing them.

Why not get hold of a copy or two today!
