Communication and hearing tactics for hearing impaired people and friends @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Aug 11 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

U3A member Catherine Blakey will discuss communication and hearing tactics for hearing impaired people and their family, friends and colleagues.

As a person with a lifelong hearing loss, and as a hearing aid user for 60 years, Catherine has developed many hearing tactics. Hearing tactics are assertive approaches towards communication that you can actively use to improve your social interaction and communication in the environment. You can take charge of some situations to best suit your needs. This helps family and friends to send, receive and understand the message.

Read Catherine’s advice on this subject for our classes.

Railway murders @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Aug 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

This talk will be given by Fiona Malcolm, who is the Librarian at Melbourne Athenaeum Library.

Railway murders don’t all happen on the Orient Express! Mystery writers have long been drawn to trains, railways and stations as locations, not just because they are wonderful places to set a mystery, but also because they naturally contain all the best elements of a mystery – hordes of strangers, multiple destinations, people fleeing from the past or looking for a fresh start. From Murder on the Orient Express to Girl on the Train (and more), go along and talk all things mysterious and railway.
