PROGRAMME FOR JANUARY 2018

3rd JANUARY

CLOSED

10th JANUARY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

THE GOLDEN RULE (HOW TO READ PEOPLE) – EMMANUEL AHARONI

Emmanuel worked in management, specialising in behaviour in the workplace.  He has learnt to read people quickly in order to monitor his behaviour to them.  He promises plenty of good humoured interaction with the audience, and will be able to tell you things about yourself that you hadn’t realised, just by speaking to you.  This is different from anything we have had before.

17th JANUARY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT – DAVID NICCOL

David, who is a retired Metropolitan Police Officer, will be giving the case histories of various incidences of miscarriages of justice, where people were obviously guilty, but were able to manipulate the system and avoid the punishment they deserved. He will explain how the justice system has evolved to counteract these injustices. 

24th JANUARY

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

ST VINCENT’S HOSPITAL ON THE HILL – JACQUIE SCOTT

Jacquie Scott was the last Matron of this hospital and will relate its 100 year’s history of dedication to the poor and needy.  When it first opened in 1907 it was called the St Vincent’s Home for Crippled Boys, which shows how much attitudes have changed.  In fact this is the story of changing attitudes and social awareness which were brought about by an ethos of faith, hard work and dedication that prevailed at the heart of the hospital’s work.  This is a ‘feel good’ story.
