Busy week at the hall

Busy week at the hall

It feels like Friday already, but I am assured it is still only Thursday! This week has been quite busy at the hall - after a wedding reception at the weekend we were back to normal on Monday with yoga, soft play and gardening club. Tuesday it was karate and soft play, and then yesterday we had short mat bowls and another karate session. Today we have two Nerf Wars sessions and then Marshland Saints are here, followed by yoga tonight. Tomorrow will finish the week off nicely with soft play, multisports and Playford dancing, before we close at the weekend for another wedding. Hope you are all having a lovely week so far!

Til next time,

Is Summer over?

Is Summer over?

I am hoping it is not just me who has sneakily pushed the boost button on the heating at night...please tell me it's not! I do not like being cold, that's for sure, and the weather took a bit of a turn this weekend. Still, the lovely lady on the morning weather channel assures me that it will get warmer again before Christmas! Until then we are keeping busy in the hall with the last few events of the Summer kid's programme. We have a few more Nerf and Multi Sports sessions to go and will then be looking towards the latter half of the year and the run up to the festive season. Doesn't the year tend to fly by!

Til next time,

Over £200 raised!

Over £200 raised!

What a great 'crafternoon' we had yesterday at the hall - raising over £200 for hall funds! Lots of enthusiastic kiddies turned up to take part in our crafts and activities...we had pine cone owls, springy gnomes, pom pom hearts...and glitter EVERYWHERE! Thanks to everybody who came along to support the hall. I love doing these events - even though my feet hurt afterwards! - and want to keep on planning lots for the children to do. Thanks again everyone, we really couldn't do it without each and every one of you.

Crafting at the Hall

Crafting at the Hall

Tomorrow is our second kid's craft event at the hall, and I am really looking forward to it. The event starts at 12noon, but it takes an absolute age to get organised and setup - the last one took 4 hours! Still, it's so much fun so I don't mind it at all, and I can;t wait to see all the kids and their parents enjoying the activities that I have planned for them.

Hope to see many of you tomorrow!

We had a great night at Bingo last night and raised £412 for the hall! Money raised will go towards future events at the hall and then we are planning a huge Christmas bingo in December to raise money specifically for a defibrillator for the hall. Bingo is held on the second Monday of each month, and the next one is September 9th.

Getting Crafty this Week

This morning I am busy sorting out all of the craft materials we have got for our Kid's Craft Afternoon on Thursday. The last Craft Day we had was very popular so I am really looking forward to this week and seeing lots of familiar faces, and a few new ones too hopefully! Come along this Thursday and for just £3 you can do as many craft activities as you want from 12 - 4pm. This is a parent and child session so you can get to enjoy some creative making with your kiddies (and take a sneaky cake break in the Tea Room if you wish!).

See you then,

We had a fantastic day at the hall yesterday with our Summer pirate Treasure Hunt. Over 100 kids turned up to help us solve the clues and unlock the treasure chest full of goodies! We raised £200 for the hall during the day, and also the Tea Room was full with hungry adventurers requiring a well-deserved cake as a reward for all their clue hunting! The next event is Nerf Wars on Thursday - hope to see you there!
