Get It Going Again

We had a visit today from the guys from the Make It  Work Shop in collaboration with Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority. The aim of the session was inviting the community to come along with any small electrical or electronic item that isn't working . The event went really well.  We had items from food blenders , laptops and microwaves.  The event went so well they are coming back on the 14 June between 11-3pm . Dig out your broken electrical items and come along and get them fixed for free.

Thank you

 A big thank you to Fitwell from St Charles this morning, who has donated over fifteen cardigans and sweat shirts to the school. The school were overwhelmed with the generosity. GTDT would like to say a big personal thank you to all involved.

Health and Wellbeing at Riverview

 Down at Riverview this month our Community Living Room  was all around "What we do to keep Healthy". The type and number of activities the group are involved in was so varied and really interesting to listen to. They ranged from darts, line dancing , minding the grandchildren and house work. We also had a chat around favourite healthy foods . Two favourites were baked potatoes and home made soup. We also had a visit from our colleagues at Wheel Meet Again who will be bringing along next month some of the ladies and gents who attend their social events. Looking forward to meeting some new friends.

Wheel Meet Again growing sessions

Yesterday we hosted Wheel Meet Again at the Granby Adult Learning Service in the growing area.

It was a fantastic morning and the gang were excited to get to work establishing our herb bed.

We planted up sage, rosemary, thyme and mint, being sure to pot up the mint beforehand - we don't want it taking over!

To give the bees a little boost this summer, we sowed wildflowers such as poppies, cornflowers and evening primrose, as well as foxgloves. These will produce an impressive burst of colour in a few months.

If you would like to have a go at gardening or would like to join our group, then contact Mike at GTDT on 0151 734 4925.

Be Healthy, Quit Smoking!

You want to receive advice about quit smoking?

This Monday we receive the visit of the Stop Smoking Service. They provide face to face support from an adviser.

Don’t forget that your health is your priority!

It’s never too late to benefit from stopping. Being smoke-free not only adds years to your life, but also greatly improves your chances of a disease-free, more active and happier life.

Our next Drop in will be on Monday 14th of May POP IN to receive the support that you need.
