Re-Opening of The Net

Net Re-opens! Sunday, 30th April was a very special day for the members of our Youth Club, Breakout, and for their leaders—The Net officially re-opened! People from the    original Net project, or those who helped to dig out the cellar in the 1960s, led the vibrant youth activity of the day, alongside those who in recent months have contributed donations or provided funding for the current refurbishment, came together for  a short service of thanksgiving.  A wonderful gathering of  around 70 then went into the Large Hall, where one of the Breakout  members, Louis, and Parish Councillor, Rachael Grantham, cut the ribbon and declared The Net well and truly open!

Once the formalities were over, the young people enjoyed showing everyone their space,  folks tried their hand at table tennis or snooker, and then back upstairs enjoyed the rest of a very pleasant afternoon  over tea and cakes. The room was buzzing with chatter, as people caught up with nearly 50 years of reminiscing, Well done everyone, it was a great occasion, and here’s to much success in the future.

    For the changing scene all around us as the leaves on the trees have virtually fallen, the gardens are lacking in much colour, and the allotments have yielded their harvest, yet despite the apparent lack of life as the trees and plants rest, there is still growth and colour as the winter plants and vegetables take their turn to show their own growing power.
