Sharrow Lantern Carnival - lantern making workshops

Saturdays & Sundays, 1-5pm, The Old Junior School, South View Rd. S7 1DB

Sharrow Lantern Carnival 2018 is on Sunday 1st April and there are free lantern making workshops running on Saturdays and Sundays 1-5pm until the day before the carnival.

The workshops rely on volunteers; you do not need to know how to make a lantern, they will teach you. You just need to be friendly and happy and help new people when they arrive to make a lantern. They are looking for 2-3 lead volunteers for each workshop and then as many other willing hands as possible.

If you are interested please email creativeactionnetwork@googlemail.com and try to attend on Saturday 27th January, 10-12pm for a training session.

Foodhall

Feb 2018

Foodhall Café is an open community venue which offers food that would have been thrown away, surplus donated by retailers, on a "Pay-as-you-feel" basis. It is run by volunteers and encourages community engagement between the general public including students, homeless people, mental health groups, isolated people, people with addiction problems and people who need to access food.

You can help, whether by just visiting to eat and socialise, or maybe food preparation, or even playing the house piano.

The cafe opens Thursdays and Fridays, there are also art workshops and reading groups, and some nights it becomes a DIY venue for fundraiser gigs.

How Debt Damages Democracy

Mon 26 Feb 2018, 7:30pm Quaker Meeting House

Dr Gerry Penny is the speaker at the first Positive Money talk of 2018, looking at:
* How money is created
- The two actual magic money trees
- The privatisation of money
* Major faults in the economy and the 2007/8 crisis
- Where the banks went wrong
- Why the banks had to be rescued
- Errors in the rescue process
* The consequences of how our money is created
- Powerless government
- Austerity and economic inequality
- Global environmental degradation
* The Solution
- The Positive Money Campaign

Gerry lectured in Chemistry at Sheffield Hallam University until retirement. His interest in our subject was fired by learning of the Positive Money campaign and attending a course ‘7 Economic Myths’ run by the Quakers. This led him to investigate why economics, important as it affects all our lives, is made to seem so complicated when it should be only arithmetic.

All welcome - voluntary donation towards room hire costs etc.
