Just behind St George’s Hall, in front of the Walker Art Gallery and Central Library, come along and sketch what you can see around you in the park at this club. You don’t have to be an artist to join in, complete beginners are welcome and we will provide the pencils and paper.
👥 Sunday 22nd August, 3:00pm - 5:00pm: Baltic Triangle Litter Pick and drink, meet at Botanical Gin Garden, 49 New Bird Street, L1 0AH
We’re teaming up with local DJs “dance 4 plants” to make the popular Baltic Triangle area a tidier place for everyone to enjoy! We provide the litter pickers, gloves and bin bags, and will pair you up with a younger neighbour to gab with as you walk the streets together and clear the trash! After you’re done, we are going to an outdoor bar for a free drink to quench your thirst after your hard work.
Abbie can meet you at Liverpool One bus station if you’re not sure where the meeting point is! Just give her a call to organise this.
AUGUST VIRTUAL SOCIAL CLUBS
💻 📞 Wednesday 4th August, 6:00pm - 7:30pm: Desert island discs
Like the radio show of its namesake, come with a song in mind and the reason behind why you picked it. This month’s theme as chosen by last month’s desert island discs neighbours is ‘Places’. We want songs or artists that include place names! Think cities, countries, towns. Share your song with the group and we will play it out loud for everyone to listen to. Please have a think and let Abbie know what song you’d like so she can create the playlist ready to be DJ for the night! If you have a landline or mobile you can also join this for free - call us and ask us how if you’re interested.
📞 Tuesday 10th August, 6:00pm - 7:00pm: Cosy crossword club
Grab your phone and get comfy, we’re going to do a crossword together! This is a great way to talk to new people, have a relaxed gab about anything you fancy, and pass some time. Don’t worry if you’re rubbish at crosswords, this is a team effort. If you’ve never joined a phone-in social club before, give Abbie a call and she will answer all of your questions.
💻 Tuesday 17th August, 6:00pm - 7:00pm: Cooking demonstration
Guest chef Alex is going to cook three courses live on camera, and be there to answer all of your foodie questions. Think Liverpool Cares meets Saturday Kitchen - on a Tuesday night! Get some inspiration for tea time, you don’t have to worry about cooking along, just bring a pen and paper in case you need to write down any hints and tips and have a go in your spare time.
💻 📞 Thursday 19th August, 6:30pm - 7:30pm: The Cares Family Disco
Put on your dancing shoes and boogie the night away with neighbours from across the UK at the Cares Family disco. We provide the music, you just need to turn up and show us your moves!
💻 Monday 23rd August, 5:30pm - 6:30pm: Virtual tour of the International Slavery Museum
Today is International Day for the Remembrance of the Slave Trade and its Abolition, so we’re going to have a virtual tour of the slavery museum based at the Albert Dock. We will guide you through the exhibitions and try our best to answer your questions.
💻 📞 Tuesday 24th August, 6:00pm - 7:00pm: Technology workshop
If you have any tech questions, want to know how to use your gadgets and gizmos, have always wanted a spotify account so you can listen to music, want to know how youtube works, want to set up an email address, or anything else tech-related then come along to this club! We will pair you up with a volunteer who will do their best to help you out. If you’ve never been to a virtual club and want to join in over the phone give us a call, we’ll tell you how it works.
