Weekly Arts & Crafts Group Attends Cally Festival


On Sunday 8 September, the arts & crafts group (that meets every week at the community centre on Wednesdays to make textile crafts) held a stall at the ever popular Cally Festival.  There were over 100 stalls at the event with several thousands of people attended.  The sales from the stall went to support the group who is currently not funded and relies on such activities for financial support.  Find out more here about the group and how to join: http://whittingtonpca.org.uk/activities/weekly-arts-crafts-gatherings/

Lunch Club Members in Art Exhibition at Cubitt Gallery


Three of our Lunch Club for Over 60's members were selected to take part in an exhibition "Someday is Today" at Cubitt Gallery near Angel.  Nan, Irene and Ann all went to the opening on 16 July and the show was on until 28 July.  All three regularly take part in our free art classes on Fridays (11:30am to 2:30pm) at the community centre.  The show was a wonderful way for them to share their work.

SAVE THE WHITTINGTON HOSPITAL


Our community centre has been a pick-up point for flyers and posters for the "Defend the Whittington Hospital Coalition."  Many people have come through to collect these materials and campaign to save the hospital. Ann Wilson, a Lunch Club for Over 60's member and a lifetime local resident, joined the 16th of March demonstrations.  She made a beautiful banner.  We wish her and all supporters the very best in their campaign.
