Special events in August

lflIt’s August already and we have some fantastic Law for Lunch seminars lined up for the month ahead. Learn about how to stay safe online, as well as renter’s rights, how to identify unsafe relationships, plus more, all in our lunchtimes talks. Register your interest over on our Facebook event listings. Refreshments will be provided.

Later in the month we are very excited to host a talk with suspense & thriller writer Michael Robotham, and a talk about volunteering in the Pacific with VSA! See below for more details.
