Oktoberfest. October Vest. October Opportunities!

The month of October is famous in some countries for its wine and beer festivals that the Germans call Oktoberfest. This year there will even be one in Southampton http://www.discoversouthampton.co.uk/events/oktoberfest-southampton-15016
However as the days get colder and the nights get longer it’s also time to wrap up warmly and to maybe put on your October vest!  (English sense of humour!)
At EU Welcome though we see it as a time to grasp new opportunities, and we want to inspire you with different possibilties along with our normal work.
Firstly on Saturday 7 October and every first Saturday of the month our Bulgarian volunteer Dessy will be offering support to people wanting to develop their career prospects. You can meet with her and Dave Adcock at Starbuck’s at the entrance to the Marlands Mall.   They can help in English and Bulgarian.  Here are full details in Bulgarian http://www.euwelcome.org.uk/languages/bulgarian/
Then on Monday 9 October at 7.00pm we are looking at mental health issues with a workshop in Polish. Full details here. https://www.facebook.com/events/125147311465388/permalink/125147324798720/?notif_t=like&notif_id=1503910957337660  If you’d like this on another occasion in English or another language, let us know.
Finally this month On 19 October we’re hosting a writers’ seminar in English.  Full details here https://www.facebook.com/events/321779451618069/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A%2223%22%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22null%22%7D
EU Welcome was thrilled in September to receive a police Certificate of Congratulations. For our partnership work and for helping a victim of crime and her family!
We’re here for you!
