SEPTEMBER 2022 events
Finance: Understanding Investments & Pension with emily man
Emily Man | Financial Advisor
“When I worked in production I felt like the world of finance was not relevant to me. There are so many areas that are confusing – pensions; investments; insurance – it seemed like I should know the answers but I never did. But nearly five years of training and working in personal finance has shown me that it isn’t hard or complicated, and more importantly, it is a vital area to engage with.”
In this session, Emily covered the basics of planning for your financial future, talking through pensions and tips on investing. She promises no selling and no jargon, just galvanising straight talk.

The Railway Children Return
Inspired by one of the most beloved British family films of all time, The Railway Children Return is an enchanting, moving, and heart-warming adventure for a new generation.
1944 – As life in Britain’s cities becomes increasingly perilous, three evacuee children – Lily (Beau Gadsdon), Pattie (Eden Hamilton) and Ted (Zac Cudby) Watts – are sent by their mother from Salford to the Yorkshire village of Oakworth.
There to meet them on the train station platform are Bobbie Waterbury (Jenny Agutter, reprising her iconic role in the original film), her daughter, Annie (Sheridan Smith), and grandson Thomas (Austin Haynes), and with their help the evacuees are soon settling into their new life in the countryside.
When the children discover injured American soldier Abe (KJ Aikens), hiding out in the railyard at Oakworth Station, they are thrust into a dangerous quest to assist their new friend who, like them, is a long way from home.
