Speaker Edward Gildea

Reuniting with our world

Never having intended to become an adventurer, still less a poet, Edward has circumnavigated the globe and climbed Himalayan peaks; experiences which gave him a powerful and visceral connection with our planet. 

The combination of sailing across oceans and observing shrinking glaciers coinciding with the births of his grandsons, transformed him into a green activist.

It is those experiences that he would like to share with you

Speaker Henry from the REACH foodbank Haverhill

Haverhill Foodbank

It only takes a change in circumstances; for example, loss of job, benefit cut or benefits delay; and families already struggling to make ends meet, either have to borrow money for food, or go without. We are looking to help bridge the gap with food for a family or individual for at least three days (or until other agencies or services becomes available). We work closely with other agencies, i.e. family support workers, health visitors and Social Services.

Speaker Stephen Poulter

Dick Turpin "The myth and the man"

In this presentation Stephen contrasts the myth about the “gentleman highwayman” which grew up in the 19th and 20th centuries in magazines, novels, films, and television series with the true story of one of history’s most notorious villains who was a violent and murderous thug. He also tells the tales of a number of other highway robbers operating around the UK whose exploits were later attributed to Turpin.
