The Disappearing Reverend

This morning feels a long time ago. I'm going to have to dig deep to remember the day although the first bit is easy to remember thanks to Colin. Colin rang when I was in the shower to tell me he was on his way with our new 4 metre worktop. I suppose most people order kitchen worktops for their home and would be thrilled with an early delivery so they can get on and enjoy the day but we are not most people. I missed his call (water and mobiles not mixing and all that) so I rang him back and assured him that I would be there immediately albeit in a half dressed state. Lottie had breakfast on the go and we arrived just in front of the Jewson lorry. I hopped out of the car to tell him to follow me. He told me to get in his cab. First offer of the day and it wasn't even 8 o'clock! It must have been those two magpies that woke me up this morning..."one for sorrow. two for joy..." Anyway manoeuvring a 4 metre plank was entertaining but I did get to press the buttons on the lorry to make the back platform go up and down!

Then I whizzed home to complete my ablutions. Rach popped by with a large collection of Peppa Pig toys for our hub toy box. Just fab!

I met a lovely acupuncturist  today who specialises in pregnant mums and who has great ideas for courses at the hub and later I met with Margaret who is a local lady who makes stained glass pieces and mosaics. She is coming the hub to run a four week course on Wednesdays from 1:30-3:30pm to create four individual mosaic pieces before Christmas so it is a great idea if you are looking to make gifts or something for your home. Sessions will be two hours and the course costs £40 for the four week course. If you miss this opportunity, then fabulous Lisa Purchase who will be running our art course on Tuesday Mornings and who will be covering various themes will, I am sure, teach mosaics at some point in the near future. More details on both courses will be available soon and will be on the new Hub on the Green website when it launches next week. 

During the meetings a very animated visitor came in and introduced himself as The Reverend Something Something Farrell but as I was meeting Cathy I apologised for being otherwise engaged and he said he come back in ten but he never did. He was such a sparkly man I would have loved to have known more about how he came to be in The Hub so fingers crossed he comes back soon.

Heidi came by to finalise the details of Bonjour Tonton at The Hub on the Green. Bonjour Tonton is a French puppet class for preschoolers. The course starts on 11th October/12th October and there are two time slots - Tuesday 1:30-2:30 and Wednesday 11:00-12noon. For further details contact Heidi on 07929 419798. 

It's only a week and half until our next Craft and Cake Fair so please do put Saturday 1st October 10:30am - 4:30pm into your diary. We have extended the opening hours due to popular demand. Our children's activity (and adults too) will be decorating canvas bags - a great idea for a present or a little treat for yourself and as usual we will be keeping the prices low because we want you to get involved. The badge-maker will make a return at the Christmas Fair on the 3rd December so we can make festive badges and Lottie can't wait! There is also the opportunity to have a clear out of any unwanted craft materials and make some money. If you want to know how CLICK HERE.

Please do let me know if you are interested in any activities or courses. We have limited places on courses. Most have 8-12 spaces.
