Hornsea Welcome Centre update

The Welcome Centre Hornsea has joined forces with the Hull Time Bank to collect, refurbish and distribute laptop computers and tablets. More information will be in forthcoming editions as the project develops.

Becoming a CIO

An application to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation has been submitted. This will help with funding applications.

Debt Advice Service

After a bit of a hitch, The Welcome Centre are now on track with a new application for registration with the Financial Conduct Authority. This is a major step on the way to setting up our Debt Advice Service.

Food Bank

Hornsea Food Bank is busier than ever distributing over a tonne of food each month. Your contributions for the Trussell Trust at Tesco are much needed. Those in need of Foodbank support should ring Carol on 07511 926967.

FOOD BANK: Carol ready to deliver some of the food bank parcels to those in need locally 

CPR training

As the lockdown is eased, they hope to re-start the popular CPR and defibrillator courses. There are also planned to be other interesting opportunities for the people of Hornsea and surrounding villages.

Free Zoom sessions

In the meantime they are also continuing the increasingly popular free Zoom sessions throughout March. Come along and join in and banish lockdown blues. The sessions are below. All sessions will be held on Zoom – help is available if you have not “Zoomed” before (see the bottom of this article).

Coffee and chat – Come and join us for a drink and a chat. You provide the tea/coffee, and we will provide the chat.  Monday 9.30am – 10.30am.

Dance with Kimmy – A fun, gentle and easy to join in dance class to suit all abilities. Learn basic line dance and enjoy dance exercises whilst listening to a variety of classic songs. Please make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and stable shoes like trainers.  Wednesday 11am – 12 noon.

Chair Based Exercise – A gentle exercise class, with participants sitting on chairs. All you need is to be sat on a sturdy chair like a dining chair. This session will be more suitable for beginners and you are encouraged to only do what you feel able too. Please make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing, stable shoes like trainers. Tuesday 3pm – 3.45pm.

Guitar with Ian Gillon – These sessions will be for anyone wishing to improve their guitar skills – whatever their level. Ian will adjust the sessions and there are now two sessions so all levels can be accommodated. Thursday, beginners group 2.30pm – 3.30pm, advanced 3.45pm – 4.45pm.
