The popular Tuesdays Till Two talks and recitals at city centre church St John’s (adjacent to the Guild Hall and Cathedral Square) return this week with the first of five talks from leaders of some of the city’s most influential organisations.

On Tuesday, Railworld chairman Brian Pearce will give a talk entitled “How volunteering changed my life”.

In subsequent weeks there are talks from organisations including PECT, Metal, Opportunity Peterborough and Vivacity, with no less than three chief executives coming to speak about the work of their organisation in the city.

All of the speakers will be looking at ways in which volunteers can get involved, and describing some of their upcoming projects as well as taking a look at what has been achieved so far.

All the talks are at 1pm on Tuesdays. The church will be open from noon onwards for the sale of light refreshments including home made cakes and scones, which will be provided by volunteers from The Green Backyard.

Admission to the talks is free, but those attending are asked to make a donation of £3 if possible, to help cover costs.

The full list is: March 3, Carly Leonard, of PECT; March 10, Mark Richards and Sarah Haythornthwaite from Metal; March 17, Steve Bowyer, of Opportunity Peterborough; March 24, Kevin Tighe, Vivacity.
