The Turtle Moves World Building Workshop – April 27th

TM April (2)

The ability to create a whole new world is the basis of great fantasy writing.

JRR Tolkien, George RR Martin and of course, Sir Terry Pratchett (yes, I was tempted to stick RR in there) set a very high bar that all writers must strive for when planning their fantastical stories.

The Turtle Moves Returns!

TM 2018

Crafty fun for all the family with a selection of activities inspired by Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.

Make your own witches or wizard’s hat, decorate a Quantum Weather Butterfly or Maskerade Mask, mind your nose with the springy eggs, or get your hands clay-mucky with golems and trolls!

No need to book but we do ask a £1 donation per child in order to re-stock our craft store.

We look forward to seeing you 🙂

Rochester’s Dementia Memory Cafe

As you know, we’re greatly involved with both the Kent and Medway Dementia Action Alliances, which has informed our Memory Box project in adapting to different groups of people telling us their stories.

Dementia Memory Cafes are a growing resource across the country for people living with dementia and their carers, to come together for support and to combat social isolation.

We dropped into the Rochester cafe last week on what would have been Sir Terry Pratchett’s 69th birthday, taking along a few Quantum Weather Butterflies and some random reminiscence items, thus combining The Turtle Moves with The Memory Box.

The Rochester cafe is organised by Alzheimer’s volunteer John Portman and takes place on the last Friday in the month at St.Peter’s Church in The Delce from 1.30-3.30pm. There’s plenty of free, on street parking and a warm welcome awaits you.
