- Just Talking is a new friendship group for
bereaved parents of adult children over 25, which has been started
by Harbour residents Jenny and Michael Jones whose adult daughter
passed away in 2015. To lose a child can be devastating, but talking
and sharing memories and experiences of their son or daughter with others who have
been bereaved in the same way, whether recently or in the past, can be a comfort. The Just
Talking group meets on the 3rd Thursday evening of each month at 7.30pm in
the Community Room in Tesco Extra, Lottbridge Drove, where
free tea/coffee/biscuits are provided and there is free parking.
