5th October: Black History Month Remembered

October 2017 is the 30th Anniversary of the start of Black History month which recognises the contribution of African diaspora across the world and their achievements. Why not come and share some of your Black heroes with the group (Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Marcus Garvey, Mary Seacole, Daisy Bates, Rosa Parks) and enjoy a look around the new exhibition.


2nd November: Keeping Active

What sports and activities do you most like? Were you any good at sport at school? Have you kept up any sports or learnt new ones in adulthood and later life to keep fit and healthy? Come and share your experiences with the group.


7th December: Taking Shelter

At this time of year we are encouraged to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. Today we talk about different charities, the aid and refuge they give to many people across the world in times of hardship. Have you ever worked or volunteered for a charity, donated toward different causes, or perhaps know someone who turned to a charity during a time of need?
