You paused your career to take care of your children & you’ve loved every minute.

You feel like you’ve given them a great foundation in life & all the love & support they have needed in the early years. However now you’re feeling like it’s time for you.

Time to remember who you are, unleash your skills & talents & find a career that you love. You would like to feel more fulfilled, be a role model for your children & share your gifts with the world again.

That all sounds really exciting…however you actually don’t know where to start….

You don’t feel as self confident as you used to & you’re not even sure who you are anymore (apart being someone’s mummy).

And you’re not sure what you could offer the a company? As well as having no idea where to start with your CV & the thought of an interview is terrifying.

We really get it. We understand these feelings & have been in this situation ourselves. That’s exactly why we’d love to help you.

Claire Doré is a Confidence Coach who supports Mums to regain their identity & rebuild their self esteem so they can step into the job of their dreams with confidence. Claire has worked in both the corporate & business world & understands the challenges that can arise.

Karen & Claire will create a non judgemental & safe space to discuss & explore the following:

What are your values & prioroties in life.
What your gifts & talents are / the career options available to you.
What’s in the way of you stepping back into work.
The practicalities of returning to work.
Share tips on how to prepare your CV.
Share ways to rebuild your self confidence & create harmony in your work / life.
And ultimately give you the boost & helping hand you need to start searching for your ideal role.
Sound like the support you need to make that next step?

Rise! Take your mat and walk - World Day of Prayer 2020 @ United Reformed Church | England | United Kingdom

The World Day of Prayer is celebrated around the world on the first Friday in March. Each year focusses on a different country, and this year it’s the turn of Zimbabwe, with the theme “Rise! Take up your mat and walk”

The women of Zimbabwe who prepared the service encourage us all to reflect on the difficulties and unrest that have plagued their country over many years. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.

World Day of Prayer is a global, ecumenical, women-led movement. It starts in Samoa, then travels around the world via 120 participating countries before the day draws to a close in American Samoa some 38 hours later. The same order of service is used in translation all around the world.

Everyone is welcome.

Celebrate World Book Day at The Little Book Jamboree on Sunday 8 March 2020 @ Hungerford Bookshop
Mar 8 @ 10:30 am – 5:30 pm

On Sunday 8 March 2020, and in celebration of World Book Day earlier in the week, Hungerford Bookshop and Hungerford Hub are hosting a whole day of book events and activities to celebrate books and reading for pleasure.

Little ones can start the day at the bookshop with Sunday Storytime at 10am before heading to the hub for some fun book-related craft activities.

Kids can catch three awesome authors throughout the day:

• Anna Fargher’s The Umbrella Mouse is a timeless, heart-stopping tale of courage, resistance and friendship drawing on the true stories of animals caught in the conflict of WWII, and winner of the 2019 Sainsbury’s Book Prize for Fiction and selected for Waterstones Book of the Month. It’s beautifully illustrated by Sam Usher (who grew up in Hungerford).

• Laura James will introduce Fabio: The World’s Greatest Flamingo Detective,  captivating capers for five- to seven-year-olds. Many children will know Laura’s Pug stories. Her talks are always fun and interactive.

• Local author Debi Evans will be telling children about The Secret Adventures of Rolo, her series of books about a time-travelling dog. With luck, Rolo will be making an appearance himself. Rolo is a Jack Russell who explores and explains history to children aided by dragons (though we can’t promise live visits from them).

Ongoing will be a big book swap at the bookshop – a great way to refresh your shelves – a book character hunt and of course this is the perfect opportunity to swap your World Book Day Vouchers for the special books in the bookshops, or use them to get £1 off one of the authors’ books on the day.

We are lucky to have a dyslexia expert on hand too. If you have concerns that your child may be dyslexic, Jacqui Fisher is the person to see for friendly informative advice. She’ll be in the hub from 11.00am to 12.30pm.

So spend your Sunday celebrating stories. Times, tickets and more information can be found by clicking here (see also the poster below). Alternatively, ask in Hungerford Bookshop or the Hungerford Hub for more details.

Clover Stroud talks to Sarah Langford about her new book ‘My Wild & Sleepless Nights’ @ Hungerford Town Hall
Mar 12 @ 7:30 pm – 8:45 pm
Clover Stroud talks to Sarah Langford about her new book 'My Wild & Sleepless Nights' @ Hungerford Town Hall | England | United Kingdom

Clover Stroud, author of The Wild Other, talks to Sarah Langford about her new book My Wild & Sleepless Nights: A Mother’s Story

Mother to five children, Clover Stroud has navigated family life across two decades, both losing and finding herself. In her touching, provocative and profoundly insightful book, she captures a sense of what motherhood really feels like – how intense, sensuous, joyful, boring, profound and dark it can be. My Wild and Sleepless Nights examines what it means to be a mother, and reveals with unflinching honesty the many conflicting emotions that this entails: the joy and the wonder, the loneliness and despair.

‘The best evocation of the all-consuming, self-eroding reality of motherhood, while also being luminous with love.’ – Sunday Times

Charting the course of one year, the first in her youngest child’s life, Clover searches for answers to questions that many of us would be too afraid to admit to – not only about motherhood, but also about female sexuality and identity. Her story will speak to all mothers, and anyone about to embark on that journey.
