Christmas Trees

Next weekend (24th-25th Nov) our church is having a Christmas tree festival. Not wanting to miss out on an opportunity to shine, we are going to be offering a tree into the mix (clearly it will be the best one by far). We've got a good crew coming along to decorate it on Tuesday after school next week (20th). If you want to be part of the team and enjoy a bit of creative flair, then get in touch using the details below.

Next week (23rd November) its alternative craft night. Come prepared to take part in some crafts, just not the ones we normally  do. 

Older Friday Pathfinders
Tonight (16th November) we are having a Friday Pathfinders first. Its Origami night! This evening will require skill, concentration, imagination and the ability to squeeze into something that you have made out of paper. 


Next week (23rd November) is to be confirmed so what this literal and metaphorical space. [                                                                                                                                               ]
