Good news – We are pleased to share that some of our Young People were invited to the GAVO Award Ceremony on 4th October 2018 to perform. Feedback from this event is that ‘the 7 Corners shone, as it should for all its young people and positive work’. Well done everyone who took part in this event.
Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme – we have been notified with regard to the vote results, we came 2nd and hopefully will receive the money shortly – although we have not secured the full amount requested, this is excellent news. These funds will go towards the much needed repairs of the front of the building which is now underway in preparation for the winter months.

On 27 October 2018 there will be a ‘Hotspot’ party at Bailey Park in the round Bandstand with the title ‘Living in the Light’ at which there will be hotdogs, donuts on strings and general fun. This will be the weekend immediately prior to Halloween and it is hoped it will draw youngsters from more harmful activities and influences.
The 24/7 Prayer Room will be running from 7pm Wednesday October 31st till 7pm Wednesday 7th November 2018. Ange has just returned from a 24/7 Prayer conference in Vienna – inspiring, reflective and reconciling! As ever there will be a theme to the week but to find out what it is you will need to book a slot! Please contact Ange on 01873 855 414 or pop in to the 7Corners office to book your prayer slots – all are welcome. With Ange’s hard work the chill room will be turned into an oasis of calm and tranquillity where people can spend an hour or two away from the rush and bustle of everyday life in prayer, meditation or simply peace and quiet!
Our HOTSPOT team are still out every week around Abergavenny, visiting Bailey Park, Abergavenny Castle and the ‘skate park’ on Hereford Road to meet the young people out in the community – this is an important part of outreach having a presence in the Community. We need volunteers! We’d love to hear from you if you feel you can help out in any way with the HOTSPOT outreach team. Pop in and see Ange in the office or telephone 01873 855414.
