First of all thanks to the small band of potential Community Centre helpers and committee members who turned out for our recent get together. It's quality, not quantity that counts.
The main subject of this post is to announce our upcoming Laughs and Curry Night on Saturday May 14th. In association with The Comedy Club Express, we're presenting three highly rated talents - and serving up a curry supper - all for only £16.
Hosting the night is Sally-Anne Hayward, an experienced TV presenter and actor (well, she's been on Absolutely Fabulous, which makes her fine by me). She'll be introducing Ryan McDonnell from Belfast, who is described by Three Weeks, the reviews website and newspaper of the Edinburgh and Brighton festivals, as delivering "Apollo quality live comedy". Headlining will be Gerry K, whose mantle piece must be groaning under the weight of all the comedy awards he's been winning.
It's an over 18s event (sorry, kids) and tickets are available from Spar Supermarket in Knighton or online from skiddle.com - or if you want to book a group table and organise a gang, phone 01547 520871. If you want to be sure of getting your pre-show curry, please do book in advance: tickets bought on the door can only include a curry while it lasts! Doors will open at 7.00 and food will be served at 7.30, with the show kicking off at 8.30. And after the show we'll have a DJ on hand to get everyone on their feet dancing till midnight.
We're expecting this to be a great night and really hope that it'll be just the start of something big for the Community Centre.

Following our recent "Awareness Raising" session at the Food and Craft Market and the distribution of our questionnaire, the Community Centre's "Friends of..." list has expanded encouragingly and we have decided to hold a get-together. Those on our contacts list have already been invited but if you have not previously expressed a burning desire to get-involved and would like to come along you would be very welcome. The venue is the Community Centre bar, the date March 28th, the time 6.30pm. We're looking on the one hand for anyone keen to organise events and activities, help with finances and join the committee. We are equally keen to welcome anyone with practical skills, from carpentry to electrician. And if lugging tables and chairs around or sorting dusty storage spaces is your thing, we'll greet you with open arms.
