The New Zealand Community Association is celebrating Christmas in a big way this year. For the first time the Community Centre will be lit up inside and out for the festive season. We are hoping to hold an event on Handford St Park, and to coincide with that, we are launching our Decorate a Christmas Window Competition.
We have chosen the theme of the song The 12 days of Christmas. So you could pick one of the 12 days or do all of them. Its up to you. You will be able to enter our competition by filling out an application form (available nearer the time, through the New Zealand Community Times and the charity shops), then the residents of New Zealand will be told which houses are taking part and will during a one week period be able to judge their favourite window, when all the votes have been counted we will announce our winner and they will receive a £20.00 Homebase Voucher.
So get your thinking caps on, and join in our fun competition, which will also brighten up our neighbourhood during this festive season.
Our next event is on Saturday 27th September at the Lonny Wilsoncroft Community Centre, Stepping Lane and is a Race Night. 8 Horses in 8 Races on the big screen. 50p bets. You shout and cheer along your horse and hope for the best! A friendly fun night. There will be a bar and refreshments. Doors open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start. Come along, have a great night out and support our fundraising for a mini bus.
Well what a Gala Day we had this year! After all the beautiful weather throughout the week to then have the rain! We did know to expect it, but we hoped the weather forecasters might have got it wrong! Never mind - we carry on regardless. So a big thank you to all the people who came down in their wellies and umbrellas to support us, and there were quite a number of you.
Even bigger thanks to the volunteers who helped run the event, under these circumstances. Mu, Alison and Gary for keeping the refreshments going, Fay, Pauline, Jayne, Sue, Nathan, Melissa, Melissa Cocker, Reenie, Shania, Demi, Andra, Lynn, Sue Gask, Ellen, Mick, Paul and of course our fabulous MC - Jo.
As usual these people went above and beyond to serve in their community and all with a smile, despite the weather conditions, and getting soaked not once but twice!
I think you are a fabulous lot of people.
