Sharing skills at Newark’s Fun Palace this autumn

If you were listening in last Sunday, you’ll have heard June talking about the return of the Newark Fun Palace event, which comes to town on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October.

There’ll be plenty of information about it on Girls Around Town over the coming weeks but if you have a skill you’d like to share during those two days, the organisers would love to hear from you!

They’ll be holding another Meet & Greet from 10am to 11.30am on Saturday 11 June, this time at Newark Library

Just get in touch with Sara by email here to let her know you’ll be dropping by to find out more about how you can be part of this year’s celebration of skills.


Managing menopause the holistic way


If you’re looking for natural ways to manage the menopause, this free course at Newark Library will give you access to impartial information and advice on a variety of holistic approaches to get you through this time.

Run by the Community Learning Programme, Holistic Care Through Menopause is being led by Fiona Theokritoff. Topics such as homeopathy, yoga, nutrition and how to talk to your GP will be among those covered in the two-hour sessions, which take place between 10am and 12 noon every Thursday until 6 April.

Although the course began earlier today (23 February), there’s still time to sign up for the remaining five sessions – just call 01623 476830 quoting the course reference number INSP17/27392 or register online here.

The WeightWise way

weightwiseIf you’ve tried every diet out there and you’re still struggling to manage your weight, you’ll want to hear this!

On Sunday’s show, Lesley Butlin and Liz Blatherwick from the Newark-based WeightWise Academy will be in the studio to talk about how a different approach can really make a difference…

They’ll be joining the Girls Around Town to explain some of the psychological reasons why diets don’t work – for more than a week! – and how their courses can help change your relationship with food and eating.

Tune in or listen online from 10am to 12 noon this Sunday to find out about the new free course starting on Thursday 21 April at Newark Library and how clients like Lucy Drury have turned their lives around, thanks to the practical skills and tools they’ve learned from Lesley and Liz.
