All ages welcome at this event from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, 28th July at Church. It will introduce the concept of cyber security and why it has become relevant to us all.  Through a mixture of presentations, interactive sessions and Q&As we will examine why your data is so valuable, introduce some commonly used terms such as ransomware and phishing, before looking at some recent changes in legislation.  Please register your interest by signing the sheet in the foyer.

KNITTED CHRISTMAS ANGELS

Many of you will recall last year’s appeal from the Circuit Children’s Team to knit Christmas Angels.  It was a great success and a total of 1665 angels where knitted and placed at various locations around the Circuit.  The feedback from the public was very positive and so everyone is asked to  please start knitting again in time for Christmas 2018.  If anyone would like a knitting pattern please speak to Elaine Phillips.
