It’s been a busy start to the year. First, we’d like to thank everyone for their support and being part of the Hope Community. Here we’re going to give you a sneak peek ahead to some of the things going on. We have already welcomed lots of new children to the centre in our Early Years and Contact Centre and are happy to say that everyone is settling in very well.
We have our regular groups taking place run by the Children’s Centre team in Bromyard and Job Club is also back on the schedule. We are going to reintroduce the ICT SOS again so keep an eye out for the dates. Oscar’s Café has had a busy start to the year and our regular Top Up Tuesday is as popular as ever. We’ve got several new events and promotions planned and our Usborne Book event this week was really well attended.
We have a full and busy calendar of events planned which you can find on our website in the What’s On section. There are lots to highlight but in particular I’d like to mention the Bingo Night at Bromyard Public Hall on April 12th and the return of our Mother’s Day Raffle for a free Cream Tea.
Last year in the run up to Christmas we had to manage without a fully equipped Soft Play in Oscar’s Café due to our Early Years Nativity performances and the Christmas Fayre. Normal service has resumed and we’re glad to see families and children enjoying this facility that is unique to Bromyard. I am equally glad to say that the entire Café team is back together after a spate of illness. Thanks to Amy, Bonnie and Emma, our new bank staff, who helped us navigate the busy time with great enthusiasm.
This year we are planning several fundraisers and will invite you all to support us; details will appear on the website and on our social media platforms nearer the time. As a taster, our plans include a Mud run in the Autumn, a charity concert and in the summer and Netti, our café manager, will be reaching for the skies in her fundraising event. More on that later ….
If you haven’t been to the Centre before please come along and visit us. We have a lovely cafe on site that is open Monday – Friday until 3pm with access via lift for those who need it and on site parking. There are lots of lovely facilities and groups that might be of interest. We regularly update our Twitter feed and Facebook and website pages so you can keep up to date with all our offers and events.
Well, that’s all for now – we hope to see you soon!
