- Tuesday 7th May Christine McDonald will talk about 'Slavery - It’s Happening Here, Now, Today'. A great deal is being written and talked about Modern Day Slavery, both in the press and on social media – but do you know what is meant by the term? Would you know how to recognise a victim or know if one was living near to you? She will also tell you a little about the Modern Slavery Act (2015), describing what is meant by the National Referral Mechanism, introduced to ensure that victims receive appropriate support and Ethical Supply Chains – another requirement under the Act.
- Thursday 9th May Pot Pourri Thursday Meeting at St Columbas Hall with multiple short presentations and including the usual tables: bookswap, trips, new groups, computer helpdesk.
