Come and discover the power of YOU!

Do you feel that you are running around and not getting anywhere?
Do you become annoyed and stressed by everyday situations?
Do you find the same problems repeating themselves in your life?
Do you want more out of your life?
Are you ready to discover the power of you?
If the answer is 'yes' to any of these questions, join Tracy Ward; Your Catalyst for Change, on a NLP Discovery Day.

NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming is a user manual for your brain. Like a user manual for your car, once you understand how the car works, you can fix it when it is not working and also service it regularly to keep it purring sweetly.

This NLP Discovery Day will introduce you to the world of NLP and how easy it is to use in every day situations.

The workshop will be engaging, interactive and fun and will help you to find the key to unlock your full potential.

Chelsworth Open Gardens
11am - 5pm
Chelsworth Village, On B1115 between Sudbury and Stowmarket, Chelsworth, IP7 7HU
Chelsworth has long been known as one of the prettiest villages in Suffolk and there is no better time to appreciate its charms than on the last Sunday in June. On that day, for more than 50 years, the villagers have opened their gardens to the public and thousands have flocked to see them. In fact the people of Chelsworth believe that they were the first village in England to come up with the idea of opening their gardens to raise money for good causes.

We are a small village, but a huge community effort goes into organising this annual event. In addition to the lovely gardens there are refreshments, entertainments, displays and stalls as well as ample parking for coaches and cars. Add all this to the beauty of the village itself with its picturesque river, ancient bridge and welcoming pub and you have the makings of a great family day out.

The gardens are many - well over 20 last year - and vary from huge and formal to tiny cottage plots, including water gardens, walled gardens and butterfly meadows. There are tall stately delphiniums and hollyhocks, roses, wild flowers and vegetable plots set against a tranquil backdrop of ancient timbered houses.
