Churton Park Community Centre - What's On Next Week

Hi Everyone

There is plenty on at CPCC next week, and tomorrow hopefully I‘ll see you down at the Churton Park Community Association Christmas Party. From 1-3pm at Churton Park School, the big guy in red arrives at 1pm! For what’s coming up next week, please click here.

KCA Christmas Giving Tree 
The Kiwi Community Assistance Giving Tree will be up here at the centre from next Monday 25 November.   Simply choose an ornament off the tree, buy a new present for the child on the ornament (age/sex) and bring it back to CPCC.  All presents will be distributed by Kiwi Community Assistance to those most in need.  What a great way to share the Christmas spirit this year!  The Centre is open weekdays from 10am-2pm, but please contact me if you are unable to get to the centre during these opening hours.  I am more than happy to make alternative arrangements.  See the attached flyer.

Neighbours Cards
Pop in to the Centre and pick up a Neighbours Card. It is wallet sized and you can write your contact details for neighbours and family members that you might need to contact in an emergency. Why not pick up a few for your neighbours while you are here. If you don't know your neighbours - this is a great opportunity to introduce yourself!
