Many thanks to the small but dedicated band of volunteers who planted 1000 crocus bulbs this morning. As they’d already started sprouting (the bulbs not the volunteers!) we hope they will bring some welcome colour in 2018 and for years to come. Thanks too to Councillors Sharon Hamilton and Rebecca Charlwood for coming along and getting stuck in.
500 bulbs planted at the junction of Parkside Road & Stonegate Road.
500 bulbs planted at the Junction of Meanwood Road and Stainbeck Lane.
This coming Spring, Holy Trinity Church in Meanwood will be launching their new Community Cafe, which will run between 11.30 am and 1.30 pm on Wednesdays.
They are looking for people to be part of the team to help prepare and serve simple food and drinks, bake cakes, chat to people at tables or just be a welcoming face.
If you think you could offer some time to help, it would be brilliant if you could make the first meeting on 10th January at 11:30am in the Fenton Room in Holy Trinity Church.
It will be an opportunity to get to know each other, learn more about the cafe and its aims and begin forming teams.
If you can’t make this meeting but are interested in being involved, please contact Kingsley Dowling or Agnis Smallwood via the website https://holytrinitymeanwood.org.uk/
A Wind of Change – FINAL CASTING CALL and backstage recruitment !!!
This is your last chance to take part in our community theatre project and celebrate the stories and people of Meanwood.
Throughout the autumn, we’ve been working hard to create the structure of the show. After Christmas, we begin rehearsals before going in front of the audience mid-February.
Now we know what the show will look like, we are seeking people to fill these gaps:
- Confident adult singers and vocalists: must be able to rehearse Tuesday evenings.
- Energetic young people aged 9 – 18 years: must be able to rehearse Saturday late mornings.
- Backstage and technical crew and makers.
Could you be part of the team?
If you’re interested, get in touch with Ness as soon as possible!
