11th to 17th June is National Carers Week which aims to raise awareness of caring and recognise the contribution carers make to families and communities and to improve the lives of carers and the people they care for.  As part of their support for the Carers Week campaign, West Berkshire Council is inviting local carers to a number of free events taking place across West Berkshire.

Crossroads Care will host a Picnic Tea Party for carers and cared for on Wednesday 13th June 2018 from 2.00pm to 3.30pm in Frank Hutchings hall, Thatcham RG18 4QH.   The focus this year is healthy living so people are invited to come along and find out about how to improve their lifestyle and find out what is available in their community.
