PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE WILL BE AN ARDINGLY COLLEGE I.T. HELP SESSION THIS MONDAY 25TH JUNE. IT WILL BE AN EXTENDED SESSION IN THE LOWER LIBRARY STARTING AT 2PM AND WILL BE THE LAST OF THE SUMMER TERM (see below for further details). NO NEED TO BOOK, JUST DROP IN.
On Thursday June 7th, Mid Sussex Older People’s Council hosted their event ‘Celebrating the Golden Years’ at St. John’s Church, Burgess Hill, as part of the Burgess Hill Festival. All over 60’s were invited to enjoy the free entertainment and lunch provided by the Spire Café at the church.
There was some fabulous entertainment provided by Tania Rodd, who sung some 50’s and 60’s classics, including ‘Bobby’s Girl’ and ‘Lipstick on Your Collar’. Burgess Hill School for Girls provided some beautiful instrumental entertainment.
There was a chance to pot your own plant to take home, and the Fire Brigade were there to provide help and advice, along with Natwest Bank offering advice on prevention of frauds and scams.
Two groups who regularly meet at the Spire Café to offer help to people, included the I.T. group who offer one to one computer help as a drop in service every Thursday morning from 11am to 1pm, and the Forget-me-not Dementia Cafe who meet fortnightly from 2-4pm on a Monday. Talented local artist Jane Reid also had a stall selling her books and artwork on Lindfield, Burgess Hill and other local villages.
Jake Watts from Natwest commented ‘It’s been a great event, and we have been able to talk to many older people today about preventing banking and other types of fraud. The key thing now is that these people can spread the word to their friends’.
