Great news, months and months of attending CLG (Community Learning Group) meetings is beginning to pay off as contacts are not only being made but are now actually turning into courses.
As a direct result of the Sutton and Kirkby meeting last month, a new ‘Scrapbooking’ course is due to start at Community Centrepoint on Diamond Avenue in Kirkby at the end of May. A taster event will take place on Friday 21 May between 10.15am and 1.15pm, with a follow-on course planned to start the following week.
More details about this course will be posted soon…..

Carla can offer all sorts of craft-based taster sessions and longer courses on scrap-booking are planned for later in the year, but for me, this post is more about testing out my new flickr account and checking that I can at last add images to my posts. Yippee!

A good time was had by all at the Kirkby Trust today when local people got a chance to put together their own healthy snacks, use arts and crafts to make unique pictures and cards and then try their hand at flower arranging – all for free.
The taster event, funded by ACLS and organised by the WEA and Lloyd from the centre, allowed all who came to try something new. Rosie encouraged everyone to fill a tortilla wrap full of as many healthy things as they could. Choosing from cucumber, carrot, tomato, spinich leaves, grated cheese, and more – there was something for everybody. Simple snacks and a chance for some to discover the delights of humous for the very first time.
Carla kept everyone busy on the arts and crafts table. There were stencils, heart-shaped punches, picture frames and a fantastic range of patterned card, paper and ribbons. Everyone made a framed picture and a greetings card and they all looked really professional.
Rebecca arrived with armfuls of lilies, carnations and lots of green foliage and had everyone flower arranging on no time. As I left there were some great looking posies being put together and everyone was really enjoying themselves, so thanks to all those who played a part in the day.
