What's been happening?
Everyone I talk to seems to be saying the same thing – 2022 was a year of big changes and a year that flew by in a flash. As we get more stuck into our routines, its good to think about doing something slightly different as there is research that suggests when we have new experiences then life appears to slow down (ever so slightly!)
Costa Women continues to grow and expand. This was a year of consolidation – of getting more comfortable with the community website and APP which I launched at the end of last year, finding some new hosts and relaunching in various locations.
