Holidays

Whilst Ryan was sunning himself I covered his sessions. To make things a little different at Cheadle Library we looked at how useful the internet is, and the sorts of things you could look up.

It is with great sadness that we heard our learner and friend, Peter Wilkinson, passed away last week. Since hearing the news, we have been thinking of how to pay tribute to him in a way that would do him justice. No words will. Peter joined our Cherry Tree group in 2011. When our founder…

Learning how digital tools can improve our health
