TALK: Why Cleaning has Meaning

TALK: Why Cleaning has Meaning

Discover why cleaning has meaning with Author and Lecturer Linda Thomas.

Hardly anybody talks about it, yet we do it almost daily! Every space requires a degree of caring, a necessary task that is not always taken on with enthusiasm.


Linda Thomas can help us to discover a new source of joy in our daily chores. Sharing anecdotes from decades of cleaning experience, she offers many practical tips and tricks of how to make the work easier and more effective.


*Open to everyone, this talk is also the introduction to a two-day course that Linda will be giving on 14th and 15th October.
