This evening we welcome Heather Dawn Godfrey - Aromatherapist and Author. Heather first learnt about essential oils, alongside other complementary medicine and integrated therapy principles and practices, in the early 70’s. TShe worked for Robert Tisserand when he first began to develop his business, then later studied at the University of Salford and was awarded a BSc (Joint Hon) Degree in Counselling and Complementary Medicine, and Masters Certificates in Integrated Mindfulness, and Supervision of Counsellors. Heather has published various material but what is exciting is that Heather has just released a fabulous book focused on the use of essential oils for mindfulness and meditation. This will be a fascinating, interactive and informative evening learning about how essential oils uplift and calm mood and emotion, support immunity and healing.
MAGICAL WIMBORNE MINSTER
PAST AND PRESENT WITH MALCOLM ANGEL
On this evening we will get a real insight into the beating heart of Wimborne Minster - this wonderful bustling market town which is steeped in the most surprising history.
It is a place of Kings, Queens, Saints and miracles along with its fair share of ghosts. We will be welcoming our speaker, the highly regarded and much loved Malcolm Angel, a wonderful ambassador for the community. Malcolm is the owner and founder of Gulliver’s Bookshop in Wimborne along with being an author in his own right. He is also the founder and curator of the Wimborne Literary Festival and the founding Director of Radio Wimborne where he broadcasts a weekly show. Malcolm also played a fundamental part in saving the Tivoli Theatre and Square Records in the town. What Malcolm does not know about Wimborne, its history, legends and its ghosts could be written on half a postage stamp, so if you would like to know about this wonderful market town then Malcolm is the man to hear. I first heard him speak about the town on one of his ghost walks and it has always stayed with me, which is why I really wanted to get him along to the Millstream Bistro to share his passion and his knowledge for the town where we hold our Live Laugh Love group.
We welcome along the youngest speaker we have had so far at the LLL groups that I host, on this evening we are joined by a very lovely young lady called Samantha Bumford. I have had the pleasure of meeting Samantha at a few charity events over the last year and have been astounded by her kindness, her enthusiasm and passion for really making a difference in society. Recently raising awareness through her own personal experience and making changes to help others who might find themselves being stalked. I will however let Samantha give you her own introduction:-
My name is Samantha Bumford and I am 26 years old. I am one of the Miss England girls and the current Miss Poole & Miss South Coast Charity Queen. I regard my role very seriously and it has enabled me to raise in excess of £50K for various charities and attend over 750 events.
Unfortunately during my experience to the Miss England 2018 finals I gained a stalker. He had 19 different convictions and caused me a great deal of stress and upset. I’m now setting up my own register and need all the support and help I can get. I’m so excited to meet you all on 7th May.
Amy Hooplovin returns to the Millstream Bistro and on this evening we will enjoy the outside courtyard for a wonderful display of Amy's talents - more information to follow but this is an event definitely not to miss...
