Community Centre Committee Members
We are delighted to announce that with lottery money from Awards For All, we have been able to purchase staging for the Community Centre. The suppliers were Unistage of Blackburn, who delivered the staging to us on the 27th October.
The staging is extremely versatile and can be used for anything from a Big Band performance to a Cat Walk for fashion shows.
We had a great Halloween Night for the children on the 31st. The hall was deco- rated with ghosts and skeletons and Jacob did a super disco with flashing lights. There was a craft table for the children to make their own ghosts etc. and they enjoyed a supper of hot dogs, cakes and a special punch. All the children dressed up and some of the adult too - a great night.
A week later we had the Firework Party. With the generosity of local sponsors we enjoyed a superb firework display. Luckily the rain held off so everyone was able to be outside to enjoy them. Supper was available in the form of Hot Dogs, Soup and Jacket Potatoes and toffee apples were also on sale. Donation buck- ets were being passed round and with the sale of the food we raised over £500.00 which will go towards future family events and the refurbishing of the Club Room.
Thank you to everyone who helped with these two events.
The first Community Centre event in December is Andy and Ruth's Christmas lunch on the 7th December. This is to raise funds for the Community Centre. If you haven't already booked your tickets, please ring Ruth/Andy on 01572 812868. Don't dilly dally otherwise you may miss out.
AND then on the 20th December we have the Children's Christmas Party (see separate advert). Please bring your children/grandchildren along for games, soft play and again Jacob with his disco. A party tea will be served and then, hopeful- ly, Santa will appear. There is no cost involved, just a present (about £4.00) for your own child (please label clearly) to put in Santa's sack. If you wish to reserve a place please ring Maureen on 01572 813061. I have quite few names already so don't miss out.
