Furzedown Voices Next Talk
About Furzedown Voices
Way back in 2014 we discussed the possibility of having a couple of talks on topics which might be of interest to our members. We started off with Helen Long, who told us some fascinating stories about the history of Furzedown. Little did we know that three years down the line, they have been a resounding success, proving not only very popular with our members, but also with members of our local Furzedown community.
Topics are very much as always, based on the interests and skills of our members. To date, we have had over twelve talks on subjects which include: Alternative Therapies, local history, Music Hall and Christmas traditions, Knitting and Crafts, Healthy Eating, Patterns in Asian Culture, History of E & A Wates and the Old Toy Museum.
The talks usually last approximately 2 hours, are run four times a year, one each term, with a special musical talk and entertainment just before Christmas.
We’re very fortunate to have a very talented group of members, tutors and local contacts who offer to share their expertise and experience with us.
Below are the posters used for our talks. We have included photos where we can, and we hope it will give you a flavour of the variety of our talks. Please come along when you see a notice in the newsletter or on the website and enjoy one of our talks.
We would be happy to hear from any member of the Project or our community who might like to volunteer to give a talk.
Please see Liz Sines at the Project for more information.
