On account of illness, the scheduled presentation on abdominal aortic aneurysms had to be postponed for a later date.
This gave us plenty of time to create display boards of our activities for use at Stoke Pride and other events. Selecting enlarged images from the choices made from the substantial collection of photos looked at in April, teams of members soon had three boards ready for use. Captions will be produced later by willing volunteers.
With some warm drinks, and a shared box of chocolates given to the group by Keele University Students – as a token of thanks for helping them – we watched the short documentary the students had made about our group and its founder. Members were impressed by the excellent, imaginative piece of film created by the students. Judge for yourself by clicking on the link below.
Grayson Perry Exhibition
An enthusiastic group of members turned up on the first Saturday in May to view the Grayson Perry Exhibition at the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery. The show included Grayson’s tapestries Julie Cope’s Grand Tour which were recently purchased by the British Crafts Council. Although a modest exhibition, it was well presented with helpful background videos. A shared cuppa in the Museum Cafe afterwards allowed time to chat and catch up with each other.
Bread Making Workshops
It was a huge pleasure to be working once again with the highly talented Susan Clarke at Bread in Common. For our first session we made beer and nut bread as well as mini cinnamon rolls. Delicious!
The second workshop had to be postponed for a week to allow for the installation of windows in the ground floor area. There can be no doubt, the windows make a major difference to the feel and light in the bakery…something that the press photographer who recorded the session would have appreciated. It is great that members appear to feel comfortable in front of cameras. An article about the group will appear online at the Trinity Mirror Group website and a printed version should come out in the Sentinel soon.
Outings and workshops form part of the two-year OLGBT Wellbeing Project funded by the People’s Health Trust using money raised by HealthFair through the Health Lottery
