September 2017 Update
Well, August went by like the Red Arrows... fast but entertaining... and saw new classes started in Contemporary Dance, Karate, and Yoga with Emma, all of which are continuing into the Autumn. The month also saw the Centre hosting again the NHS retinal eye-screening clinic, which we hope will now remain a permanent fixture.
Looking forward, new classes and activities starting in September will include Step Aerobics/Core Strength, French for Beginners, Short Mat Bowls, Cornish Language and much much more. Check our Facebook page for details.
Meanwhile, renovation work continues in and around the Centre, with the next big push being for the re-decoration of the ceiling – and substantially improved lighting – in the main hall. We know this is a big challenge – we're presently reckoning to hire a cherry-picker to provide a safe mobile platform for volunteer painters – so if you'd feel able to help us with this major task, please do get in touch; we know it's a 'big ask' but, equally, any help would be massively appreciated.
And while we are on the subject of help, we're also looking for a few more volunteers to help with jobs around the Centre and reception duties; if you'd be able to give a couple hours here and there that too would be wonderful.
On another note, those who've been using our Toddler Play Area beside the Centre will have seen that, sadly, in just the last few days, we've been obliged to close it. As part of their own continuing and much appreciated support for the Centre, the Town Council had recently taken over responsibility for the obligatory statutory inspections of this Play Area, and these have now revealed several safety issues that, responsibly, require closure of the area while they're addressed. We're already working with the Council to decide on an appropriate way forward, and more news on this will follow soonest.
On a brighter note, Saturday 16th September sees the return of the family Barn Dance! Pop into the Centre to get your tickets and more information. This will then be followed by the first indoor Boot Sale and Flea Market on Sunday 17th September; tables are going really quickly so if you fancy your hand at turning into cash all that stuff you've been meaning to sort out for yonks, don't delay in booking your table to start turning that into a reality!
Johnny Cowling is back in the Centre in December (in association with Cancer Research UK); for more details on this check our Facebook page for date and ticket prices. And keep watching out for more events already planned for January and February; you will not be disappointed...
Meanwhile, if you see that big yellow glowing ball in the sky let us know; it's been missing from Cornwall for too much of this summer... Let's hope we see more of it in September!
Till next month's update, all best from your LCA Team at the Centre.
