Learning AND earning…

Not for the first time, today throws up a lovely surprise…

There are extra benefits to coming along to a friendly and informative social learning sssion such as the one provided here at the Whitmore Community Centre: As useful as it is for indivuals in Hackney, it is also a valuable resourse for local organisations that strive to make all our lives better.

Today, we are to recieve a visit from a represerntative of The Citizen’s Advice Bureau – they need OUR help.

Citizen’s Advice wish to test an online form they have designed to help people access ‘Priority Services’;to do with getting energy bills that are easier to read, and much else. The really good thing about this is that they will give a £25 shopping voucher to all who participate in helping them get their design right – what’s not to like?

Another year…and back into gear…

A very good new-year to all my readers.

How pleasant it is to be back – now that the day has begun: For, however quiet or rowdy the holiday period; a break of some days plays havoc with ones routine.

Today, by mere coincidence – no doubt, also saw the end of a prolonged spell of calm weather. I drew-back the curtains this morning to see a mature tree on the green had been blown over in the night, and heard the ‘buzz’ of tree-surgeons busy-ness in the park opposite where I live.

Nonetheless, many of our clients braved the conditions and were here bright and early this morning;ready and raring to get back into the swing of things.
