Death Cafe @ Village Hotel, Shaw Hill Leisure Park
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Death Cafe @  Village Hotel, Shaw Hill Leisure Park | England | United Kingdom

About this Death Cafe

The reasons for a Death Cafe include interest, curiosity and a desire to help people to think about death and dying.  We hope that it helps to take away some of the fear surrounding death.

We are also interested in why people come and how people feel about the subject.

There is a cafe atmosphere which is relaxed, informal, friendly and we hope for open and honest discussion.

Try it and let’s see where it goes!

About Sue Holden

Sue is a Life Supporter and works with people who are grieving and as a Civil Funeral Celebrant. She is used to talking about loss and death with people and helping them to acknowledge that ‘death happens’. Sue is also very keen that some of the ‘taboo’ around the subject should be dispelled and that when you talk an interest and curiosity can be invoked and the surrounding emotions become less prevalent.

Kennet Valley Wood Turners Club Evenings @ Padworth Village Hall
Nov 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

The Club was founded in October 1997 when a group of like-minded wood turners got together for the first time.

Many members have been active woodturners for a lot longer. The Club meetings and Workshops are held at Padworth Village Hall, Padworth, Reading, RG7 4HY, on the second Tuesday of each month for demonstrations and Members’ evenings.

Club evenings start at 7.30pm and finish about 10.00pm. Most meetings feature a demonstration about turning by an invited guest or club member. We also have club nights, with a number of lathes being operated by members demonstrating various techniques and projects.

We also meet 4th Saturday from 10am to 1pm for an informal workshop.
