I hope you all enjoyed the May sunshine (and showers)! We are now heading into June and summer is fast approaching.
We’re excited to be starting to organise this year’s IYE Festival, building on last year’s success. We would like to say a big thank you again to everyone for their contributions and support.
This year, we are thrilled to have an ice cream van coming to the Festival – a very refreshing addition! Thanks to C.J. Copner. Activities arranged so far include two graffiti projects and three young performers. More activity details will follow in the next newsletter – watch this space. The Festival will be taking place on Saturday, 8th July 2017, in Bailey Park.
This month we’ve received £135.36 from EasyFundraising (easyfundraising.org.uk) – don’t forget that if you are buying anything online you can help 7Corners raise funds this way. For more info, click here.
The Council of Churches kindly donated a generous sum towards the administrative costs of running the IYE Festival.
The Hotspot caravan continues to be out and about, reaching out into the community. We visit the Castle and Bailey Park, as well as the ‘skate park’ at the Youth and Community Education Centre on Old Hereford Road. Volunteers for Hotspot are always a great help, so if anyone is interested in joining us on the project please get in touch with Ange.
Our next Sunday Diners group will take place on 11th June.
Our counselling rooms continue to be very busy, helping outside agencies support their clients.
Leigh Amor has joined the team as Administrator, replacing Carol White who found a job that better suited her available hours. We are grateful that Carol and Judith have both called by to help Leigh settle in.
Encouragingly, we have received some new volunteer applications, but in the meantime we would still really appreciate any offers of help. If you feel you can help out in any way, pop in and see Ange in the office or telephone 01873 855414.
