Dear Knighton Community Centre M&S Energy Fund bid supporters,
You have been magnificant in your support - for a small population of 3500 we have managed to get 211 votes (nearly 6% of the population). We know we cannot compete with the cities on this campaign (let's be honest: our nearest M&S is 35 miles away), but we have proven we have got what it takes. But we could still do more.
As a loyal follower we are asking you to make one last push to find someone you know who has not yet voted - if we all found one more person to vote we could double it! You don't have to pledge; just vote.
Here are some more reasons why:-
The library service co-locates at the Community Centre in the last week of November - with a small opening event on the 1st December, followed by a more formal opening with the 'big wigs' in February 2018. We would hate for the lights to go out whilst you are reading your books - so get some votes. Teme Spirits are working up to their annual performace extravaganza and will need some juice for their stagelights - so get some votes. We have got an incredible programme of 'Flicks in the Sticks' between now and Christmas but the projector needs some power - so get some votes. On October 28th the Craven Arms Big Band are playing for a fundraiser for Knighton Food Bank and they need power for the PA - so get some votes. November 25th there is a rock night with 3 live bands who need wattage for the decibels - so get some votes. We have a Community Market every 2nd and 4th Saturday, including special Christmas Markets selling lots of lovely food, gifts and cards but imagine the Christmas Tree without its sparkle - so get some votes. Next year's events lined up include St David's Day celebrations (3rd March), Gardening Day (28th April) and much much more, all needing electricity - so please please get some more votes.
Voting closes Friday 20th. Help us go greener. Vote by following this link: www.mandsenergyfund.com/projects/keeping-the-lights-on-pv-panels-for-knighton-and-district-community-centre
This Sunday October 8th, Knighton Community Centre welcomes five highly regarded Scottish musicians collectively known as Moishe's Bagel. Performing an infectious and highly danceable blend of klezmer and gypsy jazz with hints of Middle Eastern and Balkan rhythms to spice the mix, the band has played sell out gigs at major venues like London's Jazz Cafe, The Sage Gateshead, St George’s Bristol and Edinburgh Queens Hall. Their past CD releases have earned major accolades like world music magazine Songlines' Top of the World selection and placing in the Sunday Telegraph's top 10 world albums. To further enhance the breadth of experience on the band's CV, their latest album features the band's original score for Soviet silent film classic "Salt for Svanetia"!
Tickets for the band's Knighton Community Centre gig are £10, which includes dips and nibbles etc, and are on sale now at KNIGHTON LIBRARY as well as from the Tower House Gallery, Knighton, or from The Workhouse or Courtyard Antiques, Presteigne. Online tickets are also available via the "What's On" page button above and the centre's Facebook page if you prefer! There will be a bar on the night and doors open at 7.30. With rave reviews like The Scotsman newspaper's "This fearless 5-piece emphatically puts the ‘class’ into ‘unclassifiable" Moishe's Bagel really should not be missed!
