It’s been a while since I posted a notice in Latest News. I know I need to post more, you don’t need to tell me and I will, promise. We’ve been busy these last few months setting up our new choir and planning museum opportunities for the rest of the year. It hasn’t been easy but we’re figuring out ways to do it. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be filling you in here on the progress we made and highlighting dates for your diary.
But, first off, we’re looking forward to our d’music’a concert tomorrow night – 11 April at 8pm. If you’ve been to one of our concerts, you know that we promise an opportunity to get your toes tapping and you’ve read more…
On Wednesday July 10th, we continue our lunch club meetings. This time we will welcome John Nicholson as our speaker. John is the senior chaplain at Fulbourn Hospital. If you haven’t met John yet, I encourage you to come along. John and I have worked together for over a year developing a bereavement programme designed to support individuals who have lost their significant carer. As you can imagine, this is a particular challenging experience and John has been instrumental in shaping these resources in a pragmatic, holistic way. John isn’t going to speak about that programme at this lunch instead he wants to speak to carers as a carer himself in a talk he has called Finding your place, your way, your path. How apropos, don’t you think?
If you’ve not joined us before and would like more information, additional details for the lunch can be found on this website.
Lunch remains £9. We gather after 12:30 to order our own drinks from the bar and put in our lunch order. Lunch begins at 1pm. Please note that bookings for the lunch are essential so numbers can be passed to Hugo at the Six Bells.
I am looking forward to our next Still Caring lunch meeting on 12 June when we will hear from the director of our local hearing loss campaigning charity — CAMTAD. Frances Dewhurst will join us for lunch then speak briefly to us about the current understanding of hearing loss and she has kindly agreed to take questions. If you would like to know about CAMTAD, you can access more information on their website.
This is our fifth lunch meeting and I’ve really enjoyed meeting the carers who have joined us. It’s a lovely group and the feedback I’ve received from attendees has been really read more…
