Prepping for University with Dyslexia – Thursday 22nd August at 2pm
The transition from sixth form or college to university is an exciting one, but it can be daunting, especially if you learn differently. In this course Tina Hunter, a dyslexia teacher at an FE college, will go through tips on how to prepare for the different ways of working and studying at university, how to organise yourself and how to make sure you are able to access the support that is available.
Gardening – throughout summer
Come rain or shine the Bell House volunteer gardeners continue to tend to the garden and the vegetable beds through summer. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our friendly group. We meet every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays 9:30-11:30 am. Any level of experience is welcome, and we always have a cup of coffee or tea with a croissant afterwards. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
