What’s happening in September

We have a new Page – giving details of our programme of activities and events.  The programme is divided into months and you can print-off the sheet and keep it to hand.

This is what we have planned for September.

We look forward to seeing you at some or all of the events.

Jacqui gets First Aid trained

Jacqui  Shields, our Trustee and Project Manager, has taken a First Aid course.  She is now has a certificate to handle first aid in the workplace.   Well done Jacqui.

The U has run its every-day first aid training for the group.  It’s not accredited but it provides really useful information on how to handle the first few minutes of seven common medical emergencies and is based on a programme from the British Red Cross.


Talking Tables

Members of the group joined Talking Tables at SCILL’s Sherwoods Cafe on Friday 21st August 2015.

This is a new project, providing tables at cafes around Sutton, where you can find a friendly face and good conversation.

We have other dates in the programme over the coming two months so why not drop in.  Join the table with the spotty balloon.


Useful information about recycling

On Wednesday 19 August we had a great presentation on recycling.

Amongst the top tips:

  • buy used goods if you can – there are a lot of second hand and charity shops offering a good range of items
  • look for products that use less packaging
  • maintain and repair products
  • borrow, rent or share items
