NORTHWICH residents with a speech to perform are being urged to hone their skills with a Cheshire club.

The North Cheshire Speakers starts its new season on Tuesday, September 9, helping people learn the art of public speaking.

Margarette Leahy, from the club, said: "We learn how to speak by practising in front of sympathetic and supportive listeners who have all been there and are then given guidance by gentle, suggestive advice.

"People soon relax and gain confidence in themselves.

"Everyone enjoys the meetings – we don't take ourselves too seriously so come along and see for yourself – you will be warmly welcomed."

The group meets at the Arts Centre, in Frodsham, at 7.15pm on Tuesdays.
