Talks will talk place through Zoom and will include time to ask questions. Specialist talks do not require booking in advance and are free to attend, but if you wish to you can make a donation via our website by clicking here.

Schedule of events
  • Live your life rather than be a spectator in everyone else’s, Tuesday 26 January, 7pm
    • Join this talk given by Slimming World Consultant Donna Cooper.
    • She says: “Very few people come to me because they need educating on what is the healthiest options – they already know fresh fruit salad is going to be better for their waistline than chocolate fudge cake – so my role of being a Slimming World Consultant is to give people the encouragement to choose that fresh fruit salad and to help them to be kinder if they choose the chocolate fudge cake. When I found Slimming World in 1995 it was that non judgement approach (and the fact that I didn’t have to go hungry) that changed my thought process from weight loss being about a diet to adopting lifestyle changes that promoted good mental and physical health. Fix the head and the body usually follows!”

  • Carl Mynott – The Accidental Publisher, Tuesday 9 February, 7pm
    • Carl Mynott was an insurance professional for almost thirty years until he took the decision to quit, in order to focus on his children’s books. When his children were younger, Carl decided to draw little pictures of the birds in his garden to help enthuse them to take an interest in wildlife. He had no idea at that point that this would result in a significant change in direction for his career.
    • Join Carl as he shares with us how his story of moving from the high pressured insurance industry, through grief, and out the other side into a whole new world… of books, and wildlife.
