Table Top Sale – Sat 25th June 2016. 8am to 11am.

Table Top Sale at The Parks Community Centre

Do you have a garage full of old toys that your children are too old for, a wardrobe full of clothes you don’t wear any more or indeed any other items you want to re-home? Then bring them along to the Table Top Sale, pass them on to neighbours and friends and earn yourself some money at the same time.

We are offering 10 tables for hire in the Community Centre main hall and weather permitting will be also offering 10 spaces in the garden for people to bring their own tables. Both of these options will be on a first come first served basis.

Additionally, if you would like to sell stuff out of your own garage or house front then we will add you to the Table Top Treasure map which will be handed out at the Centre on the day and publicised beforehand. We just need you to specify what kind of goods you will be offering e.g. Garden tools, furniture etc. People can then make their way around the neighbourhood to look at what interests them.

Charges
For hiring a table in the hall it will be £6
For supplying your own table and using space in the garden it will be £5

To come along and shop it will be £1 each for the first hour and after that 50p each.
Tea and cake will be available for a small charge.

(All monies raised in the Centre will go back into the Committee funds for future events)

If you would like to take part in the first of hopefully many Table Top sales, then please contact anna@theparksca.org.uk or message me at Wilfie Regan on the FB Community site. We will let you know as soon as possible if you have a table. We will also keep a waiting list in case people drop out and as future contacts for the next one we run.

Community Garden project

Just over a week ago, The Parks Community Association volunteers gave up their time to make your Community Centre look AMAZING! 😍
Despite some serious rain, weeds and obligatory ‘debris’ in the ground…and thanks to some kind donations from Homebase and Sainsburys….the front bed has all been turned, one third has been weeded and planted with some lovely spring flowers (all donated). We also have two lovely pots planted by the front doors to make our entrance lovely and bright.
Thanks to two absolute stars Amy Howard and Martin Reilly for putting in so much for us all. Thanks too to Andrew for giving his lunch hour in the rain to help weed!
I think you’ll agree this LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER!!!!

We will of course be organising another day so that we can make some more progress in the garden, if you have any ideas about what we should do with our lovely outside space, or would be interested in giving a little time to help up make this space the best it can be, please do get in touch either by our Facebook page, in the comments below, or by email.
