What’s on in October

The nights are drawing in, and the weather is cooler (that might prompt this forecast heatwave, who knows?). So we have had our last Demonstration in the Church for the year, the rest will be delivered on Zoom, with the details being emailed to members about one week ahead of the event.

But we still have active art going on!

Drop-in Session Wed 11 October

Our monthly Drop-In sessions continue at the Hursley Road Community Hall. All the details are on the Drop-In page.

Zoom Demonstration Wed 25 Oct

Our first Zoom demonstration of the winter is from Barbara Whitbourn. Full details including how to connect will be sent out to members about a week ahead of the event.

Early Spring Workshops

Bookings are now being taken for the January, February and March Workshops. Members should have received details and a link to the booking form last week. The booking form is open until midnight on Sunday 29th October, so don’t forget to complete it before then. After that, Roy will set the computer programme to work so people have a fair chance of getting at least one of their preferred places.

Methodist Church Food Bank – donations welcome!

As some of you may already know, the church has a Community Food Larder adjacent to the front entrance to the hall. This is supported by church members as well as the local community.  Could anyone, occasionally, pop a donation in the box near the front Linkway door?

Tins/jars of meat, vegetables, pasta sauces, pasta are always welcome. Toiletries and nappies are also welcome. They are unable to take items that must be kept cool/refrigerated. 

The church’s policy is to never query anyone using it.  They recognise that, occasionally, it may be abused. The times we do speak to a customer, they all say how they appreciate the church’s support.

Thanks on behalf Chandlers Ford Methodist Church.
