Kings Norton & District

Saturday Workshops

The aim of the Saturday Workshops is to provide members with free access to information that might help them manage their lives better. Workshops are held every few weeks (watch the Events page for forthcoming workshops), on Saturday mornings, and they are interactive in the sense that everyone is encouraged not only to sit and listen but take part and contribute.

Specialist speakers or experts are brought in for some workshops and for others we will rely on members who have specialist knowledge.

A number of Workshops have already been successfully completed:

6 October 2018: First Aid for First Responders

20 October 2018: Getting The Most Out of Your Mobile Phone

26 January 2019 - How Can I Go Green?

9 February 2019 - Poverty and Homelessness

9 March 2019 - Dementia

1 June 2019 - Legal Issues For Older People.

21 September 2019 - Fraud Awareness

Next Workshop will be 19 October 2019 - Home Security and Crime Prevention

Proposed future workshops in the pipeline are:
Healthy eating with an NHS Dietician including eating for one, vitamins, microwaves, diets, etc (foods have changed, science has changed etc)

Driving on modern roads - road signs, car accessories, safety systems, Satnavs, etc (at least 40 yrs since most of us passed a test and road systems have changed a lot)

Healthy bodies - fitness, exercise, diet, smoking, drugs, etc (we are all trying to stay alive!)

Using the Internet - Search engines, IS Providers, security, risks, bookmarks, passwords.

Watch the Events Page.
