* COME & BE COLOURFUL Saturday 12th November. 10am - 12.00pm. Coffee served at 9.30am. Led by Fiona Stephenson & Kathleen Smith. Our differences all add to the beautiful colour of life but can lead to misunderstanding & conflict. Understanding more about your natural preferences and how you may see things differently to others can help to build better relationships and stronger teams.

C-me profiling is an insightful and enjoyeable way to learn more about ourselves and how we interact with others who may have very different styles to ourselves. This builds self awareness & improves how we relate to each other. Colours are used to describe our different preferences so it is easy to remember.

£5 cost. To reserve a space please contact Sally Pollard by Tuesday 1st November. Email: pollard3@hotmail.co.uk
