“I’ve just completed an Escape Pain course with Serena, to be honest, I was dreading it and couldn’t see it being for me but Serena was brilliant.  She made it fun, was patient and knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for her.  She’s a credit to Longwell Green Active Centre. Thank you.” – Deb Tattersall
