Today is our first gathering at the Loft. Plenty of time for connection & conversation. We're in the 'wet cement' phase ... we can all be part of helping to shape this new season in Brum's Gay Village. That starts today :) See you at 3pm!
We will be open from 0700 until 2100 today in order to be open for people of all faiths from across the city and region to mourn the death of Her Late Majesty The Queen. Queuing systems will be put in place during busy periods, and regular updates will be posted to our socials.
As many of us think of the Queen & her family at this time, think also of many other families who are worried about loved ones in hospital or struggling with health issues. Every day we navigate the realities of ageing & death, it is part of our humanity & how we walk this Earth
