All other workshops are approx. 40 minutes and you are invited to attend a couple of different sessions. Please contact [email protected] if your would like to join us on the day or have any questions. Resource Cafés We have really enjoyed getting out and about across the county, meeting you all at our Resource Cafes this Autumn - attendance at the cafes has grown, which always helps to make them more useful and vibrant, as ever it's the stories and experience you share with each other that help the Network to continue to thrive. We have introduced some new welcome packs for groups to use for new volunteers, which are available from My learning Cloud ( which is only available to GNN members) GNN Team Leader Karen (right) meets with Liz and Andy from Thorngate group and John from the Wallops group.
