Brownhills Community Association have been in touch, asking me if I’d share their latest newsletter for December 2017 here on the blog – and as ever, I’m happy to do so.
The Community Association are based at Brownhills Community Centre, just by the Miner Island in central Brownhills, and always have lots going on for people from the town – and the wider community – to enjoy.
The Community Centre is what my generation would know as ‘The Annexe’ – the old Central Boy’s School, now a bustling community resource. To find out more about the events and activities listed, you can pop in or call them on 01543 452119.
The Community Association have lots of stuff going on, and loads of great facilities, right in the heart of Brownhills. I love what they’re about and all the great things they’re doing.
My best wishes to Janet and the gang, please do pop along and check them out.
Welcome to December’s Newsletter
Once again, we have had a busy year of refurbishment and investment in new services, but our Christmas has come early as Brownhills Musical Theatre Company, Walsall Gilbert & Sullivan Society and Walsall Operatic Society have chosen us as their rehearsal base. L’rhythmix Dance Academy have also made us their new home. We are proud and excited to have them all and look forward to working with them.
There is more to come in the new year as we mark another milestone our in wonderful building’s history – in 2018 it will have been in continual community use for 125 years.
If you haven’t been in for a while, do come along to a club or a concert or just for a cuppa. We’d love to see you.
We wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
Concerts at The Lamp
Brownhills School will be entertaining us at their Carol Concert on 20th December at 1.00pm.
Tickets are £3, which includes a light buffet.
Tickets from www.thelamparts.co.uk/carol-concert.html (no booking fees) or 01543 452119.
Thanks to everyone who has bought a ticket for the hamper prize draw and guessed the name of our lovely doll. Proceeds will go to providing a Defibrillator at the Centre. The results will be revealed on the 20th December, so there is still time to have a go!
Tickets available from the Centre Office.
New year, new facilities
It’s not much of an advent calendar door, but behind this cardboard is the new kitchen which will serve our refurbished multi-activity rooms. Opening in the new year, these rooms are ideal for yoga, dance, and exercise, as well as parties and more formal events.
The Centre’s last opening day will be Friday 22nd December and we will re-open Tuesday 2nd January.
