CAR BOOT SALE CANCELLATION

Unfortunately, the decision has been made to close down the running of the Car Boot Sales with immediate effect.

There are many factors involved in this decision including a lot of valuable feedback, available resources and future plans for the Centre.

We would like to thank everyone who supported us and helped it grow and develop (Sellers, Buyers and Volunteers).  We’ve had a lot of fun getting to know all of you over the last few months and hope that you will continue to support the centre as it moves forward with its development and future events in the pipeline.

Tea & Tunes Review

The Tea & Tunes event last weekend (26th August 2017) was the first of it’s type and if the feedback is anything to go by, it won’t be the last with comments like:

This was a lovely trip down memory lane!

Will this be a regular event?

A selection of 40’s, 50’s and 60’s Music was provided free of charge by The Live 45’s and was very well received.  There was a lot of singing along and there was even dancing in the aisles!

A wonderful selection of cakes and biscuits were provided free of charge by our local Co-op on Cranleigh Road as part of their community fund.

Thank you Cranleigh Road Coop for the delicious donations for Tea and Tunes at the Beaufort Centre.

A massive thank you to all those that donated time, food, music and manpower to make it happen and to all those who attended, making it such an enjoyable afternoon.

A total of £50 in donations was raised which will continue to help
the centre moving forward.

CAR PARK CLOSURE – 24 & 25 JULY 2017

You may or may not be aware that, in April, the Centre had to close the car park for the Council to carry out critical safety repairs.

As it is nearly the Summer Holidays, they are returning to complete stage 2 of these repairs!

During this time, to ensure safe completion of the repairs and to allow the works to properly set before cars drive over them, the Car Park will remain closed.

 

Classes

Tea and tunes

Would you like to join us on Saturday 26th for the first of our Tea and Tunes afternoon music events? You could enjoy an hour of live music from the 40s, 50s and 60s supplied by The Live 45s with tea and biscuit refreshments in the interval provided by the Beaufort Community Centre and Cranleigh Road Co-op.

It would be great if you could let us know you’ll be coming along, but feel free to turn up on the day if it takes your fancy. The more the merrier!

We’d love to see you there x

Fundraising event help needed

We are looking for people to help at two of our fundraising car boot sales events each per year. Nothing more.

The Car Boot Sales are held on the third Sunday of every month and all the staff at the events are volunteers. This means every penny generated goes back to the Centre, aside from advertising costs such as printing flyers. We are currently raising funds to make improvements to the Centre, reinstate the kitchen facilities and run events to meet the needs of the local community.

At each car boot sale, we have received fantastic positive feedback from the local community and it’s clear people want it to keep going. But we can only continue to run them long term if we find a few lovely people willing to provide some practical support. We know Sunday mornings aren’t everyone’s cup of tea so we are only asking for two days a year of your time from each volunteer.

Please drop us a line using the form below if you can help. We would love to hear from you.
