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.

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

Fantastic fun at the Easter Trail

At least 50 children from the local community and their families came and joined in the fun at the Beaufort Community Centre’s Easter Trail.

The trail kicked off with the families exploring the Rookery park to track down 10 words to complete their trail sheet. There was plenty of time for fun on the swings and climbing equipment while they worked out the well-known biblical saying to complete the challenge.

Back at Beaufort Community Centre, volunteers handed out Easter Eggs to each successful word hunter. Interim Centre Manager, Lynn Chisadza, said “At one point we didn’t think we had enough easter eggs so someone donated more on the day.”

But that wasn’t the end of the fun. The children went into the hall to join in Easter crafts and watch a puppet show while the grown ups enjoyed complementary refreshments and a sit down.

Over 20 volunteers from Cranleigh Community Church and St Saviours organised, coordinated and ran the trail for which Beaufort Community Centre is very grateful. As Lynn said “These young children are not only our community’s future but the nation’s too. The Centre plans to actively engage the young people of Beaufort to help them stay safe, healthy, enjoy and achieve as well as become active participates of society.”
