Nestlé Academy Apprenticeships Open Evening

Nestlé Academy Apprenticeships Open Evening

Thu, 31 Jan 2019 18:00

The open evening is a great opportunity to understand what Apprentice opportunities Nestlé have at their Wisbech site. The evening will consist of talks from some of their current Apprentices and employees to disclose what it's really like to work there. An opportunity for their current Apprentices to showcase their roles and to offer advice on the application process!

Nestlé are offering specific rooms laid out for each apprenticeship scheme available and there will be a room for people to have some guidance on the application process.

The evening is being run by the current Nestlé Apprentices so in each room there will be an Apprentice who is on that specific scheme.

There will be lots of information on each scheme, handouts to take away and an opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with Apprentices and experienced employees such as Engineers.

They'll also have a representative from Lincoln University, Holbeach Campus – where they send their Manufacturing Apprentices, to help on that side as well.

To attend:

Please arrive on site via the car park entrance directly off Cromwell Road, signposted
"Welcome to Nestlé Purina Wisbech".

Head towards the revolving doors of Reception where you will be greeted by the receptionist who will book you onto the site.

After Hours Live - Andrew Robinson

Fri, 01 Mar 2019 19:00

Singer-songwriter Andrew Robinson will perform a free concert in Wisbech as part of After Hours Live on Friday March 1.

Share article from Wisbech Standard on facebookTweet article from Wisbech Standardpost article from Wisbech Standard on redditemail article from Wisbech StandardShare

The musician and worship leader is described as having a heart to lead people into the presence of God, where they can experience the power of the Holy Spirit and be equipped and released to live wholeheartedly for Christ.

Andrew is passionate about writing songs that are grounded in biblical truth and inspire worshippers to pursue a deeper and more intimate relationship with God.

At the end of 2016 Andrew received fresh inspiration to write new songs and after a prolific spell of crafting new songs, he released an EP, 'Where The Light Shines', which is an acoustic recording of songs that give a glimpse into his journey of faith over the last few years.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER (A WOMEN LED, GLOBAL, ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT)

Fri, 01 Mar 2019 19:00

Come – Everything is Ready!

Everything is ready and the invitation is for everyone - men, women and children of all ages to join this Day of Prayer.* Women of Slovenia, one of the smallest and youngest countries in Europe, have prepared this year's service and they encourage us to reflect on the barriers they have faced since the end of the Second World War when their country was a part of Yugoslavia, a Marxist socialist republic. They share the challenges they have met and the hopes they have for the future.

World Day of Prayer is an international, inter-church organisation which enables us to hear the thoughts of women from all parts of the world: their hopes, concerns and prayers. The preparation for the day is vast. An international committee is based in New York and there are national committees in each participating country. Regional conferences meet to consider the service and then local groups make their plans. Finally, at a church near you on Friday March 1st 2019 people will gather to celebrate the service prepared by the women of Slovenia.

The Day of Prayer is celebrated in over 120 countries. It begins in Samoa and prayer in native languages travels throughout the world --- through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas before finishing in American Samoa some 38 hours later.

Sheffield FC – the World's First Football Club


In the year of 1857 William Prest and Nathaniel Creswick founded the first football club in the world. Two pioneers that developed new rules and laws for a game to play with friends of all ages in the community. Early, both gentlemen saw the power of football to connect people with grace, happiness
and respect for one another. Starting with the inventions of 1857, football became a strong social and emotional basement for the citizens of Sheffield - and is today the world's greatest game.
