Grove Park welcomed more than 100 people to a concert which celebrated the recovery services available to help people struggling in Weston.

To mark the last weekend of International Recovery Month, The Friends Of Grove Park organised the event which included performances from those in recovery, as well as The Baytree Singers who sung under the musical direction of Bill Stagg.

A spokesman for The Friends Of Grove Park said: “Weston is the home of some outstanding treatment centres which individually champion a style of recovery from active addiction.

“This has developed a network where recovery is possible through treatment, fellowship and self-empowerment programmes.

“With the North Somerset Recovery Network involvement, this event is the start of some partnership formation to tackle negative stigma, awareness and allow for improvements within the recovery community.”
