  Everyone had a lovely time and got some great writing done last month and here is the next installment on Sunday 3 June 2018 at St Pancras clock tower.After much thought and consideration, (looking in to the market, assessing what other people are doing and primarily trying to find the best place for a writing retreat), I have found the space and set the clock for a superb retreat.I looked around and found a few one day retreats in London, that were around 6-7 hours, priced at £45 for a day retreat in a classroom type setting where everyone meets to write together.I thought I could offer something different and more unique for the same price. Being inspired to write not only involves making the time, but it also helps to be in an atmospheric setting, both beautiful and inspiring at the same time to work on your writing.You canot fail to feel inspired in the splendour of the clock tower at St Pancras. The beautiful decoration, the stunning panoramic views of London and 10 metre high celings with charm, history culture and architecture do all blend together in a magical way.This retreat has a maximum of 8 places, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis so if you feel like you want to spend a day on this retreat to work on your writing secure a place today.If you miss the first one I will put you on a waiting list for the next.The format will run to the following itinerary on the day:• 10:30 Gather at The Designated Meeting Point• 10:30-13:00 Introductions and Writing• 13:00-14:00 Lunch provided* with an open forum giving writers the chance to read out extracts from their work, chat and get feedback from colleagues.• 14:30-16:30 Two Hours of Writing• 16:30-17:30 Open forum giving writers the chance to read out extracts from their work, chat and get feedback from fellow writing colleagues until We Finish at 17:30.* Complimentary refreshments also provided throughout the event.Experience a great setting in St Pancras Clock Tower and have a social element to the day too.It is advisable to book early to confirm your place and avoid disappointment. I am keeping the event to this group initially for 4 days, then will be advertising elsewhere. If you book on and the 8 places have been taken you will be notified and refunded.Please note we prefer you to take off outdoor shoes inside, so a pair of slippers or woolly socks is always a good idea and a treat for your feet!

It provides a platform to exchange best practice, give advice and support to less experienced teachers, answering practical concerns and keeping them abreast of the latest curriculum changes. A one-stop shop for like-minded professionals who seek help and information. It is free to take part and is facilitated through a closed on-line group, safeguarding the conversations of the teaching staff. The idea of a 'Teacher's Centre' is a response to the lack of local and national specialist support and diminishing Continuing Professional Development with the demise of local authority advisers ASTs, lead practitioners and supporting organisations. The Centre utilises new technologies, not requiring a physical space in new times, but providing the same high quality service that our traditional teachers centres were recognised for. The Food Teachers Centre is a place of creative and innovative ideas and action practical solutions learning and sharing To join the closed group, simply visit www.facebook.com/groups/foodteacherscentre    Bright Ideas Food and Health Consulting Ltd  Registered Office 69-71 East Street Epsom Surrey KT17 1BP    Registered No 9096275    VAT No 189 4024 84

Take a 2 mile guided tour with the Kenley Revival Project Manager to learn about RAF Kenley's significant Battle of Britain history as part of London History Day. Hear about the conservation, preservation and restoration of one of Britain's finest examples of Impermanent Architecture. Discover the features that were uncovered during our community archaeology dig and find out how we managed to relocate a war memorial complete with a time capsule. The event is outdoors and therefore suitable clothing must be worn. Surfaces may be uneven and slippery. The route will be a mixture of surfaced path and grass and therefore suitable footwear must be worn. The length of the route is approx. 2 miles. There is no parking available onsite and we would encourage you to travel by public transport (details can be found here). Limited parking is available on Hayes Lane which is closest to the RAF Kenley Tribute where the walk will commence. There are no toilet or refreshment facilities available. Always remember that Kenley is an active airfield for gliders, so for your safety remain outside of the yellow line at all times. Spaces are limited so please book in advance to avoid disappointment. The Kenley Revival Project is partnership project between the City of London Corporation, Kenley Airfield Friends Group and Historic England. It has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to protect the heritage of the most intact fighter airfield from World War II.
