Dates for your Diary
January 2019
Mon Jan 14thSocialCake and Coffee Morning
A chance for members to catch up with everyone after the Xmas/ New Year break.
Included will be a short presentation by the Recorder Group.
February 2019
Tue Feb 12thMeetingDavid Bell to give a talk-‘Trust me, I am your Plague Doctor’
The traditional tale of the famous Eyam Plague is somewhat incidental as David relates how illnesses at this time were treated by such primitive methods. His cheeky look at the fanciful and outrageous world of 17th century healthcare is hugely original and very entertaining.
His recommendations on the website really make him a ‘must hear’ speaker.
March 2019
Thu Mar 14thMeetingTalk presented by Eddie Tarry , Community Engagement Officer, Styal Prison, who will give an insight into his work and programme planning for the female offenders.
We are guaranteed a very interesting morning.
