Calling all men over 50.....

Do you like working with wood? Are you interested in meeting new people and sharing your skills? If so, pop into to our pop-up shed because we need you!

Reach has teamed up with volunteering initiative Timebuilders (run by the St Mary's Centre), to set up weekly workshops at Gaunt Shops. Starting on Thursday 20 July 2017, the Gaunt Shops Makers Group will meet at 9am every Thursday until the end of September, to make benches and flower beds from waste timber to breathe new life into the Gaunt Shops area.

The sessions will take place at 181 Blackstock Road. For more details, contact James on 0114 223 0240.

Do you want to tap into local job opportunities, get more active and build your confidence? Why not join us at Newfield Green Library on Wednesdays starting on 05 July 2017 to meet new people, a short walk and the chance to talk to our friendly advisors about your needs.

The 10-week Walking for Purpose programme will support you to develop new skills alongside other people in the same situation.

The sessions will run until 12 noon and you can come to as many or as few sessions as suits you.

You can also get a free one-day pass for use on buses, trams and trains.
