Having noticed their was new people moving to the area near by the office, members of staff suggested creating a ladies group, with the hope to break down barriers, celebrate diversity whilst sharing different culture skills and experiences. a leaflet was created and staff manged to get a good response, arranging to meet all those interested, at the beginning of October we met with a few women, we currently now have 7 women attending on a weekly basis, every Wednesday morning from 10-12am. Whilst consulting with the women we discovered they are all from different areas and have a lack of knowledge about South Shields, find themselves very isolated, some with traumatic backgrounds resulting in them having to up and leave. We made a plan to show the ladies different locations so they had a better feel for the town, starting with South Shields museum, Crafty corner, followed by a trip to North Shields via the Shields Ferry, stopping by the local fish quay, followed by a trip to the Angel of the North and Penshaw Monument. Our Ladies look forward to getting together on a weekly basis. Sharing a passion for food they are going to cook a dish from their country for one another as part of sharing culture skills. They hope to find work within the area, complete First Aid training, attend fitness sessions such as Yoga and Zumba. They all love to explore new places and enjoy hearing the history of the North East. We are keen to let the group expand, our kettle is always on! if you are a Women and want to feel part of something, think this group may interest you please get in touch.
