Olympic Torch Events & the Monday After...

We had an amazing weekend in Exeter. The hub was in use all weekend with a course on Saturday and it was used as the media base for the Olympic Torch Celebrations on Sunday. A big thank you to John Harvey (Exeter City Centre Manager) for pointing the media our way.

Please do look on the calendar on the right hand side of the page to see what is going on this week.

Today we had a busy yoga babies. Nikki still has a few spaces if anyone is interested. Penny was in collecting vegetable orders. Penny has so many plans and ideas and it's so good to hear her exciting future plans. Penny's website is if you haven't visited yet.

Lovely Verity and family came in and we drew a giant mermaid together. After Friday's badge-making, I have decided we need to get busy together on Mondays and Fridays. We will have enough art to create our own gallery in a few weeks time!!!

The children that came to Make and Take Club after school on a Monday were improvising their socks off today. Over the last few weeks they have been creating there own puppets with help from Hannah and Pip. They had us all in stitches with the play they created. With characters including Claws, Cleopatra, Diva, Cat, Mermaid, Tree Frog and a Pokemon character that I still can't pronounce (sorry Dan) it was quite a challenge but they were amazing.

The next two dates are set for our cake and craft fairs so please do spread the word, pop a poster up or come along.

I had such a lovely time at Harvest's celebration in Belmont Park on Saturday mostly sitting in the sun drinking coffee and eating crispy cakes. Harvest are a great organisation. You can follow them on Facebook - then you can make sure you don't miss out on what they are doing or go to their website.I bumped into a lady who had been a frequent hub visitor in the early days. She is now fully absorbed in all sorts of exciting things and is studying too. She said it was all thanks to the hub as we helped her back on her feet and it just went from there. So good to hear.
