The 2022 Programme of Talks

The Phair Hall and Community Centre
The Phair Hall and Community Centre

The Giles Group – for those with disabilities, and their Carers – meets in the Alresford Community Centre (the Phair Hall) for a talk or presentation from a visiting speaker, on the second Monday of each month. After the presentation, tea is served, and a general discussion starts.

Please come and join in! Visitors are welcome. The town Minibus will collect attendees from their homes around the town, for a small charge. Meetings last from 2pm until 3.45pm approx.

While we are confident that Meetings will restart sometime, the changes in regulations make it very difficult to confirm our meeting schedule. Currently the planned schedule for the first part of 2022 is as follows:

January 10th: The meeting will have our AGM and financial report, plus the party postponed from December, plus maybe some games of Bingo or similar, and the normal raffle.

February 14th: For Valentine’s Day, Margot Power will tell us what it has been like being a Town Councillor in Alresford, and naturally answer questions.

March 14th: Bernie Simmons will give a talk on the town Minibus history, which is currently run by the NATT, the New Alresford Town Trust.

April 11th: Nick Denbow will fill in here with a talk about Alresford Crafts, the maker of soft toys and dolls who worked in both town mills in the 60s and 70s, using example from the Alresford Museum.

May 9th: Denise Buxton, the Alresford “Village Agent” will introduce a talk on the services and activities offered by these community agents, who are supported by Age Concern and HCC

…..and then in June (on June 13th) we will possibly schedule a garden party, in the sunshine!

At the AGM in January, it was decided to suspend the weekly coffee mornings until Easter 2022 – possibly they will be reinstated in the Summer!
