The follow-up workshops will be targeting what women see as the main issues surrounding their advancement in the workplace, and in attempt to keep the subject matter as relevant as possible we are issuing a questionnaire and would be grateful if you could spare some time to complete it and return it to us - email:
document.write( '' );
document.write( addy_text11610 );
document.write( '<\/a>' );
We will then evaluate the responses to ensure that as many topics as possible are covered at each workshop. As an appreciation of you spending time on this, we will be putting all the names of responders into a draw to win a free ticket to one of the workshops. The draw will be held on 30 November.
GEORGIAN ST HELIER with Marie-Lousie Backhurst on Sunday 9th November, 2.30pm
A local historian will take you on a tour to discover the delights of St Helier in the 18th century. Re-live the lives of those who worked and played in town.
Marie-Louise Backhurst says:- 'This walk around the town aims to show aspects of the effects of the Georgian period on St Helier. The population more than quadrupled with immigrants from England and France and the number of houses increased from about 200 to over 1,200. New properties include no 16 New Street, now owned by the National Trust for Jersey. The whole shopping experience changed from a mainly market based one to enclosed shops and a new purpose-built market. The walk will concentrate on those who lived in St Helier, such as the merchants, the wig makers and the brewers. The Church of England lost its predominance and Methodists and Roman Catholics started practicing their faith and building in St Helier.'
Meeting point: Given at time of booking
Price: Free Trust members, £5 non-members
