Lest we forget

Making connections with the community is paramount and 1st Ashingdon Scouts have provided and made these stunning soldiers. Something we envisioned last year, that they have bought to life.  This… this is what’s it about. To say as a team we’re proud. Very proud! Thank you 1st Ashingdon Scouts for making this possible!

Hard work is always rewarded. 

The view from our new door.
The view from our new door.
The Room of Requirement is gradually getting there. Once the much sought after door was installed we realised the most beautiful breathtaking view that is St Georges Park. We still need to plaster, change the internal doors, paint, do the electrics, get the light fittings up, draw the mural, get the floor replaced and buy comfy furniture. It will be worth the wait.

A real NeeNaw

There was a nice surprise for one of our new hirers this weekend, Nee Naw Parties which hires our hall on a Saturday had a visit from a real Nee Naw vehicle in the guise of a rapid response Police car which parked in the car park, PC Adam Hollingworh and his colleague kindly popped in the see the children and allowed them to sit in the car and activate the siren and blue lights. With a wave goodbye from all the children they were soon back on duty protecting the public.

A little more for today. 

New Kitchen Window

We now have natural light and decent ventilation in the kitchen. I went in and thought someone had left a light on. Such a difference.

And there will be light…

The work has started. Yippee… what a difference already. Natural light playing in the loos and Room of Requirement is so welcoming. The toilets look, well, like toilets but now you can see yourself in the mirror in natural light.  One more window to go. The kitchen. I will post that soon.

A new Room for hire

Room for Change
Room for Change
The committee have been working hard to bring a new room for hire online. This room will have new double glazed windows and a new door installed, it will eventually have new infrared heating coming from the ceiling. Plus new cafe sized tables and chairs. This room can be used for a cafe environment using The Little Honesty Coffee Shop next door, it can be used as a meditation room, class room, meeting room and a club room of any sort. There has been much interest in the intimate feel this room brings. So for fun we have called it ‘The Room of Requirement’

Christmas Tree oh Christmas Tree how lovely are your branches.
The committee have been busy whilst in lockdown. We scurried in the hall like little church mice to put up the Christmas Tree and some decorations to welcome back our hirers. There is another surprise waiting for them too. Eek... we can’t wait for them to see! I will post our jewel in our crown when our hirers have seen for themselves.

A little gardening 

Tidy up

The committee noticed that it was time the garden in front of the hall needed a little spruce up. So four of us with gardening gloves secateurs, forks, hedge trimmer and plastic bags set to work. There was bramble growing in amongst the trees and the worry was that it would choke them along with the ivy. So we spent two hours clearing as much as we could. It’s not looking like Kew Gardens yet, but it won’t be long. 😆

Beautiful things happen in our hall.

We have welcomed back Yogabellies this week, a Mother, Toddler and Baby Yoga group.  As Webmaster I snuck in at the end to have a little nose at what was going on. What a beautiful atmosphere Sam had provided for the new mums. I kinda wanted to be in their sparkly circle too.
