Circus Star back for 2021

Our friends at the council have been in touch to update us on events booked in for this year (Pandemic permitting of course). One such event is Circus Starr, on 22nd June. This is what the circus is about:
“Put simply, we bring fun to you!
 
We believe in a world where anything is possible. We understand that attending mainstream events can be difficult for children with additional needs or families in difficult circumstances which is why we’ve created a tut-free zone; a show in which shouting out, dancing and jumping up and down are expected. At our circus, everyone is absolutely encouraged to let go of their worries, get involved, and be themselves.
What we do
We bring all the fun of the circus to children and families that may have found this difficult in the past. We know that a circus is a family event that brings everyone closer, encourages creativity and allows people to become stronger and more able to face life’s challenges head on. We tour the UK bringing the very best in circus talent from around the world and stage 148 incredible, animal-free shows every year.
Who we do it for
Children with disabilities, families on low incomes, those facing challenges such as domestic violence, bereavement or who may be living with a life-limiting condition. Every child, whoever they are, is free to be themselves at a Circus Starr Show – shout with joy, move to the music or appear centre stage!”

Mosaic Eventually Sorted.

Our Sainsbury’s mosaic fish made from your recycled bottle tops has finally swum to the surface.
 
We still have lots of bottle tops left and there are plans to do another mosaic – eventually! Thank you to everyone who saved them for us.

Jean’s Memorial Tree in Place.

Thank you to all who donated to provide this gorgeous tree for Jean Ketley. We can’t wait to see it flourish and bloom.
 
It is on the slope in front of the two memorial benches. Please help us to keep an eye on it and look after it.
The plaque will be arriving in the not too distant future.
