Reaching out to Men in our Community – Men’s Wellbeing Talk
Monday 4th November, 1.30pm
Garry Freer, our Men’s Wellbeing leader and Dr David Beales will be talking about Men’s Health, the importance of exercise, nutrition and mental wellbeing and will signpost ways in which you can improve your life and age with vitality. David is a member of the group; he says, ‘We have focused on exercise that fits our individual needs, quietening the busy mind, nutrition, men’s health issues such as prostatism, as well as having open and confident discussions on areas of worry and concern. I leave the session feeling uplifted and ready for the week ahead. We have a good laugh and it’s also a way of meeting new people and making friends with similar interests.’
Please let the Office know if you intend to come.

FREE valuations on your jewellery, silver and watches by Kate Bliss
Friday 6th September, 11am—3pm
What Treasures Are You Sitting On?
Famous TV jewellery expert, Kate Bliss can value your precious gems and designer timepieces for FREE at The Avenue Club on 6th September, 11am—3pm.
A familiar face on TV antiques programmes such as Bargain Hunt, Kate is set to do free jewellery, silver and watch valuations and hopes to pave the way to some auction windfalls.
She says: “I’m delighted to be heading this new free valuation event at The Avenue Club and hope to uncover some fabulous finds. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than telling someone a piece of jewellery or a watch they thought was valueless is worth hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds. For example, we plucked a hardstone 18ct gold cameo ring out of a box of costume jewellery. The client planned to throw it away. It sold for £1,100 from an estimate of £100! Designer watches are also highly desirable.’
So, don’t be shy, bring us your treasures, big and small. Please contact the Avenue Club office to book your time slot.
All our talks are free but any donations are always gratefully accepted.
Please contact the office for further details.
