Monday 10th December: Online seminar 'Looking after ouselves'

online 18:00-20:00 add to google calendar
The Eden Project is organising this free session. Whether we are undertaking community events, activism, business or any other project, looking after ourselves often takes a backseat. But none of us are immune to burning out. Join this practical session to discuss the symptoms and risks of burnout, and use tips and tools to help build resilience into our daily (and busy!) lives, as well as how we can all support each other towards well-being. This relaxed, open workshop will take place online, please email Peter for joining instructions. Please feel free to get into the wintry spirit and join with a mulled wine and mince pie!

Wednesday 12th December: Cambridge Carbon Footprint's Winter Social

We'll provide the mulled wine and mince pies, but finger food or a bottle to share would be welcome.

Sunday 16th December: Nightingale Gardeners

Nightingale Garden 14:00-15:30 add to google calendar
On Sunday 9 December we are having a 'feeling a bit festive' version, with simple crafts, roast chestnuts etc. We will then have one more Sunday (16 Dec) before we break until the new year. The sessions are a bit complicated over the winter - check the website.

Mostly flowers but some fruit and veg and a nature pond, bug hotels etc - we try to be sustainable and organic. In a fairly new community garden in a former bowling green in a corner of a City Council recreation ground/park, near Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Free. All welcome. Small cash donations are always very welcome.

An outdoor activity so weather dependent - check the garden website if you are travelling far. We are insured for only adult volunteering but sometimes we have some tasks suitable for children if they are closely supervised by parents etc. The park, on Nightingale Avenue (CB1 8SG), also has a good playground - and toilets.

Thursday 10th January: Evening with Mac Macartney on 'The Children's Fire'

The Engineers House, Museum of Technology, Riverside, CB5 8LD 19:00
Join storyteller, inspirational speaker and author Mac Macartney for a cosy evening around the fire at the Engineers House. "In the indigenous culture from which the Children's Fire emerged everything physical was an expression of the invisible spiritual life force flowing within it. Inhabiting a world of living symbols, each one a clue to the spiritual power that charged it, the chiefs ordered that a small fire be kindled in the centre of their council circle. This small fire was called the Children's Fire. It served to remind the chiefs of the first law: No law, no decision, no action, nothing of any kind will be permitted to go out from this council of chiefs that will harm the children." (more info here. More info about Mac's book below. More...
