We are available to give talks about Sherborne and the local area both as physical talks in person, or over a Zoom call.

Local, Knowledgable Talks

We have developed a range of talks that can be delivered as a traditional talk, whereby we come to your premises (such as care homes etc) and give a physical talk. Alternatively we offer talks over a Zoom call straight to your home. All you need is a computer or mobile device and you can enjoy our talks remotely.

Our talks have gone down a treat with the residents of Trinity Manor Care Home, here in Sherborne – We would like to thank Amy for her lovely review.

A history of long street sherborne


Paul has bought so much joy and interest into Trinity Manor Care Home. So far we have had talks on ‘ A history of Sherborne’, ‘Sherborne At War’ and recently ‘A walk along the Jurassic Coast’.

This has been a great activity for all the residents to take part in. They have all shown great interest in each of the talks, spending time engaging with one another of how much they enjoyed his presentations.

If possible, I would advise all Activity Coordinator’s to really include Paul’s talks in your weekly planners. I personally feel £60 is good value for money as so much time and effort has gone into each presentation and he has shown fantastic reliability and a professional attitude.

If you would like to get in touch with myself, please follow the contact details for Trinity Manor Care Home where I would be able to assist any needs required.”
