Events are like buses, it seems: you can go months without anything happening, and then all at once, there are two events in one day!
On Saturday 28th September, we have our Macmillan Coffee Morning at church between 10 a.m. and 12 noon. The buns and cakes are all made and we can’t wait to welcome people back on a Saturday morning. Do come along to support this worthwhile cause!
Then there is the Dearne Community Arts’ Festival happening at Astrea Academy Dearne (the secondary school in Goldthorpe, on the left as you head into Bolton-on-Dearne). This arts’ festival aims to champion creativity and celebrate community, with many local residents taking part in exhibitions of arts and crafts and workshops and demonstrations where you can see first hand what creativity can look like. Come along between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. for a chance to buy Christmas presents, be wowed at all the beautiful things people make day-in, day-out in our area, have a go at something different and just be uplifted by all the beautiful creations made locally. Entry is free and there will be refreshments available served by the Snap Tin Cafe.
Some examples of what you will find are:
circus skills (fancy a go at plate spinning or riding a unicycle?)
paintings & drawings
hot wax painting
children’s clothing for sale (handmade sewing and knitted items)
crafts & Christmas gifts
storytelling & poetry
Plus we have performances on stage (dance, music, circus skills, book readings) and the unveiling of the Community Mosaic started at GPCC on 1st June as well as guest appearances from Vincent the Sun Bear and Hilda the Hippo, from the ‘Go Wild in Thurnscoe!’ sculpture trail this summer.
