In a world of identity fraud, nuisance callers and scams it is becoming increasingly difficult to protect ourselves and know who to trust. In an effort to help, Stone King is running a series of free community coffee mornings in Bath on a number of topics.
The first of these, held at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) in February, covered the topic of fraud and how to be safe. A guest speaker from Halifax talked through how to identify a scam, answered questions and took feedback on board. Alison Allen, head of Stone King’s Private Client Sector, shared her insights with the key message to “always take five minutes” to consider whether something might be a scam and opened the topic to the floor. A representative from AgeUK was also on hand with useful literature to take home or read over coffee and cake.
The next event, on the same topic, is being held on Thursday 22 March from 11am until 1pm at BRLSI, 16 to 18 Queen Square, Bath BA1 2HN. If you would like to attend, please let us know by writing to Events. or calling 01225 337 599.
Future community coffee mornings are taking place on Wednesday 18 April (now fully booked) and Tuesday 1 May on the topic of ‘keeping yourself safe at home’; and on Tuesday 19 June on the topic of ‘personal wellbeing’. Please let us know if you would like to join us for either of these, using the contact details above.
