This month Wilmslow Library are putting on four fantastic FREE events for adult learners week.
 
All of the sessions are free of charge, but please phone Wilmslow Library to book a place (01625 374060).  You do not need to book ahead for the ‘Your Tablet Online’ drop-in session.
 
Monday 15th June - Your Tablet Online. If you're looking for advice on how to get started online with your tablet, come along to this Get Online/Go On session with the Peaks & Plains Housing Trust and get up and running. Just drop in between 10.00am and 12.00 noon. Bring your own tablet, but if you don't have one Peaks & Plains will be bringing some along for you to try. Refreshments provided.
 
Tuesday 16th June - Dementia Friends Information Session at 10.00-11.30am. Join us for a relaxed and informative session to enable you to understand and support those living with dementia within the community. Our Dementia Champion will explain what it's like to live with dementia and the actions you can take in everyday situations. Refreshments available; donations welcome.
 
Wednesday 17th June - Create your own Fascinator at 10.00am-12.00 noon. A fantastic opportunity to take part in a morning of crafts with Moira from Whirley Sewing. The techniques will be demonstrated by Moira, who will then be on hand to give guidance and advice whilst you create your own fascinator. All materials will be provided - just bring your own dexterity and a little imagination! Perfect for those summer weddings and trips to the races! Craft kits to make at home will also be available to buy during the morning. Refreshments available; donations welcome.
 
Thursday 18th June - 'Stolen Rowan Berries' with Joy Winkler at 2.30pm. The former Cheshire Poet Laureate presents her new collection of poems, which use flowers and links to nature to reflect on events, people and memories. The poignant, funny and thought provoking poems contain evocative imagery and an abundance of recollections. Joy will be sharing her work, inviting discussion about the ways in which the natural world can inspire us, and selling and signing copies of her book. Refreshments available; donations welcome.
