Make a splash for charity cash
Are you a champion swimmer or maybe getting fitter is one of your New Year’s Resolutions? Could you be part of an Environmental Cleaners’ swimming team at the inter-livery swimathon in March to raise money for charity?
The swimathon – billed as a fundraiser not a competition – is being organised by The Chartered Surveyors’ Company and takes place at 5pm on Thursday 2 March. Each team needs to cover 5,000 meters in under 2.5 hours at the RAC Club in Epsom. If you’d like to be on the team please contact the Clerk.
Apprenticeship: Politics, Education or Reality Television
The Lord Mayor, Alderman Dr Andrew Parmley, will be holding his annual Gresham Event at 6pm on 13 February 2017 at the Guildhall Library. The topic is the history of apprenticeships and their relevance to the future – and how they can rise to the challenges of modern education.
The Lord Mayor – a member of the Government’s Apprenticeship Delivery Board – is keen to discuss how apprenticeships can bridge the gap between the skills that young people have in the UK, and what employers need. There will be a chance to ask questions and debate these issues after the lecture. Book your free ticket.
Memories are made of this
