A STOURBRIDGE laughter yoga instructor is to host her first in-person session since the pandemic began.

'Merrie' Maggie Thompson has been keeping people smiling throughout the coronavirus crisis by taking her Laughter Yoga clubs online on Zoom.

But she is now set to hold an in-person socially distanced laughter yoga class on Friday June 11 from 5pm to 6pm in King George V Park, Lawnswood Road, Wordsley, now that lockdown restrictions have eased to permit outdoor gatherings and exercise.

Participants are asked to wear facemasks and adhere to Covid-19 guidelines but Maggie has promised there will still be plenty to smile about.

Her 20 to 30-minute online sessions which have proved a big hit will also continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5pm.
