Welcome back to all Enterprisers who have returned for another year of creating and selling and all the other activities that the club members get up to. A warm welcome to all those Enterprisers who are new to the Club. We have old and new members at all 6 schools. As a reminder to you, our 6 schools are Little Bowden, Great Bowden, Farndon Fields, St. Joseph’s, Meadowdale and Welland Park.
Sarah and I are busy with all of you planning this term’s selling events. We are always down at the Indoor Market every Saturday and all of you are welcome to join us. Many kids come to the Market for a first visit just to see what we do and then return on a future Saturday to start working behind the stall. Other kids join us right away. For many Enterprisers, coming to the stall is the very best of the club. We hope that all of you can find some time in the upcoming year to join us.
We are planning an event called a ‘Community Crafting’ event on Sunday the 20th of November at the Great Bowden Village Hall between 1 pm and 4 pm. We will be inviting people to come and craft alongside us making Acholi paper bracelets, friendship bracelets, Xmas tree decorations etc. We will also be selling our own handcrafted jewellery and other vintage and retro jewellery that we have picked up over the years and that people have donated to us. We will serve coffee, tea and hot chocolate and homemade cakes. We are hoping that all the Enterprisers can make a contribution of a baked good and also help us out on the day with teaching the visitors how to make Acholi beads and friendship bracelets etc. More about this event in the near future.
We are planning to have some school-based sales closer to Xmas at school nativity performances and other seasonal events. We are anticipating another exciting year of meeting one another from all the 6 schools, creating great products and selling successfully so we can make lots of donations of our profits to good causes.
