Coming up in 2017

2017 Planned meetings and events

As our proposed schedule is filling up we have put together a list of what we are planning for the rest of the year. Many of these have been confirmed and some are still a little vague so there may be changes closer to the events.

  • 18 April - Graham Barker, will be talking about walking around the East End. He is the director of Walk East, which offers guided and self-guided walks ranging the length and breadth of our area.
  • 16 May - AGM & 10th Birthday Party, featuring locally produced food. 
  • 20 June - Comedian, Samantha Baines, in preparation for featuring in the Edinburgh Festival in the summer, will be trialling her new show about amazing women in history that have been ignored by the history books. As it's stand up comedy we should all have a laugh. 
  • 18 July -  Have you ever fancied participating in some Olympic sports? Come and meet Freya, who in the two years leading up to the Rio Olympics challenged herself to try every sport open to women in the games.
  • 15 Aug -  How often do you watch the news or listen to someone talking about economics and feel like they’re speaking a different language? ‘Economy’ (not The Economist, which can also be good) is here to save the day, it is a weekly online newsletter, aiming to make economics understandable.
  • 19 Sept -  Decoupage - craft activity with Jill Fulbrook
  • 17 Oct - Black history month.
  • 21 Nov - From copses to corpses - Sophie Churchill has worked in forestry for many years and the first female President of the Royal Forestry Society. She will also talk about -The Corpse Project, which she heads.
