Today’s hero is Wadley — learning IT and sharing what he already knows a lot about. Wadley is a genius in the kitchen — fed everybody with his own Saltfish-&-Ackee recipe (plus yellow yam, plantain, and dasheen).
Use our tracker to check whether your local services are meeting strict waiting-time targets for cancer, routine operations and A&E.
The NHS is under unprecedented pressure. Rising numbers of patients need hospital care – whether in an accident and emergency department, for cancer treatment or for planned operations and care, such as knee and hip replacements.
For each there are strict targets local services are expected to meet across the UK. But what are the chances of being seen in time where you live? Use the interactive tracker to find out.
Do you remember this photography project with Helen Cammock at Open School East?
Helen has a new project called Shouting in Whispers – she will tell you about it herself at Whitmore Community Centre, Friday afternoon – 2 pm – 20 October 2017.
Helen will also pop in on Wednesday morning 18 October. Be sure not to miss her!
Finally got the kitchen-and-food program started. So the kitchen space was almost as busy as the IT space – where more than 20 people got help and support with their own devices (phone, tablets, laptops) and ours.
We found a deadly yam lurking in the kitchen. You’ll never guess what happened next!

We bring (mainly) older people together for enjoyable shared learning experiences. Our aim is to allow everyone who wants to learn something or share activities in friendly settings a chance to do so at minimal cost.
Ben and Kirsty arranged their volunteering on the Benefacto website.
