Food Glorious Food

Food – we all love it, but do we know how to cook it, or how to make exciting cake decorations, for example?

At the Village Centre we have two new food courses coming up between now and Christmas. The Joy of Food teaches basic cooking skills that improve your cooking confidence. The next FREE four week course starts on November 7th. Meanwhile, the Christmas Sugar Craft Workshops with Michelle Carpenter show you how to make beautiful seasonal decorations for the Christmas table. The first workshop is on Thursday 21st November.

See the posters below for full details and booking information. Places are limited so secure your place now and get cookin’!

Village Centre Lottery – More Support Please!

image of lottery drawFirstly, a big thank you to all those supporting our fundraising through the Village Centre Lottery. Every month there’s the chance to win a cash prize and to know that you are helping the Centre become an even better resource for the community.

There is much more that still needs to be done. More tables and chairs, improved audio-visual equipment, better kitchen facilities for our community lunches and other events, the list goes on.  A building like the Village Centre always needs something doing to it – redecorating, bumper strips to stop chairs damaging the walls, as soon as something gets ticked off the list, something else goes on the bottom!

So, please help us by continuing to support the Lottery and by joining if you haven’t already. All the information can be found on our website Fundraising page, where there’s a Subscribe button which let’s you set up an online payment of £5 per month. Or, there are links to a form which you can print off and post or take to the Centre. We really do need you!

Meanwhile, the most recent draw of Lottery prizewinners was made on Tuesday 15th October at our popular community lunch. Winners are as follows:

First prize, number 45 winning £30. Second prize number 3 winning £20 and third prize number 39 winning £10. Congratulations to the lucky prize winners. Subscribe to our Lottery and you could join those winners, plus you’ll be giving us a big helping hand. Thank you!
