It’s getting spooky round here!

By | Activities | No Comments

Halloween is coming to U1R!

We’re getting into a suitably creepy spirit here, with the horribly good decorations going up, including light-up skull and spider! We’ve also got a howlingly brilliant Art & Craft session on Wednesday afternoon (beginning at 1.30pm) when we’ll be carving some pumpkins, and making pumpkin and squash soup.

It would be horrifically good if you could visit our haunt and bite into our fiendish fun!

Welcome to the new look Newsletter!

We’ve not only changed how the Newsletter looks but how it’s put together and how we share its content digitally. We hope you like it…..let us know? Want to find out more or get involved? Join our Newsletter group on Thursdays at 11.00am

Whilst we talk of things digital we’re moving things on social media. From the 1st November we will be using the St Martins social media feeds:
Facebook , Twitter and Instagram

On there will be all the bits you’re used to on the U1R feeds plus lots more about St Martins – make sure you’ve liked and followed those by 1st November. We’ll also be setting up a U1R group for you to share in conversations about things relating to U1R so look out for that too.

Also on the 1st November we’re launching our new blog! You can find it on under-1-roof.org.uk and it’s where our Newsletter articles will now be found online…..plus so much more! We’ll be updating the blog regularly and sharing information and articles on there that we think you’ll all be interested in. Got something you want to see on the blog? Then let us know…either through social media, email (u1r@stmartinshousing.org.uk) or the old fashioned way….. and come and see us in the centre.

Opportunity knocks!

For those of you who have some digital skills and feel they could coach others. We’re looking to train up volunteer digital mentors who will then coach others here at U1R or at a number of digital hubs across the city. Let us know if you are interested.
