Welcome back to Jack and Jill’s parent and toddlers group. It was lovely to see so many of you here on Monday. Over the next 2 weeks Andy Froud and myself will be collecting tins and packets for harvest. We are going to distribute these to Clitheroe Food Bank. We would be grateful for any contributions.
Look forward to seeing all of you again next week for more fun and play.
Coming to the St. Mary’s Centre this Christmas, the Award winning Hard Graft theatre company has a great Christmas show for you, your family and friends .
This year it’s a classic, ‘The Jungle Book’ based on the stories from Rudyard Kipling. Follow Mowgli, Baloo, Bagheera and Kaa the python on their amazing adventures in the Jungle. One of the greatest adventure stories ever told.
Brenda Jones, our Treasurer at St. Mary’s Centre, has retired and we all gave her a wonderful send off with Prosecco and cake. Andy Froud made a presentation of some flowers and a gift voucher.
She’s still going to be around the office organising the Church magazine and other bits and bobs, but she’s free to enjoy a long and happy retirement doing her own thing. We all wish her well and thank her for all the work she has done at the Centre. She will be missed.
Parliament have a Summer recess. (That will give us all a welcome break!!) At St Mary’s Centre we will be business as normal……Sort of? !?!
Yes, some of our activities take a break but behind the scenes we will be undergoing a number of improvement projects.
Work on the roof will be continued to carry out necessary repairs. Our trusty local builder David Johnson will make sure of that! (Oh, yes he will!)
Alongside the exterior work there will be a team of Heating engineers from Boiler Control Services. They are installing a new boiler and Radiators to give us independently operated systems in the Front Upper Hall areas. Offices/Mutual room/washrooms etc.
If that’s not enough why don’t we do some work on the Stage I hear you ask!!!
OK ………..In conjunction with the Operatic and Dramatic Society we are Upgrading the Stage lighting to give us a more Modern flexible lighting system.
The Committee are working hard to continue the improvement process to enable the Centre to be an even better environment for the various User Groups and visitors to our Community Centre.
Thanks to all who continue to use the Facilities and Support St Mary’s. With your support we can continue to maintain and improve the Hall.
