Growing Bolder

Feeling quite proud of this film made with Caleb Couldbethemoon Parkin:


Come and join Growing Bolder in February 2018 and gain the confidence to run your own friendship or hobby group.

Growing Bolder is a network of people over 55 who encourage each other to try new things and meet people. Thanks to funding from Bristol Ageing Better, we are offering a three day training in running your own group. This could be a friends group, a hobby, sports, green or politics group for older people in your neighbourhood.

This group is free and run by two experienced trainers, Mary Everett and Barbara Bloomfield, who have worked with relationships and training for more than 46 years (collectively!) We shall cover creating exciting lessons, publicity and PR, signing people up, troubleshooting, funding, tax, legal status, and keeping the group safe, interesting and grounded.

When: Friday 9 Feb and Saturday 17 Feb plus one extra day for supervision.
Where: Bishopston, off the Gloucester Rd.
Times: 11am-4pm
We gratefully acknowledge funding by Bristol Ageing Better. for further information.

Starting in January, 2018, we shall be starting a free training course for Bristol residents who want to run their own groups for older people. To book any or all events, please contact Barbara here
