Weekend to Remember

Weekend to Remember

We hope you have got the Weekend of 9th to 11th November in your diaries.

This really does promise to be a Weekend To Remember for all sorts of reasons.

As well as Brinsworth joining in with the National Celebrations to commemorate the Centenary of the end of World War 1, this weekend will see the official opening of "The Centre", our amazing new community building. Here is a reminder of what is happening that weekend.

Friday November 9th

See the displays of World War memorabilia and art from local schools and clubs, including Brinsworth and Catcliffe History Group.
Enjoy a proper afternoon tea complete with sandwiches with the crusts cut off and a some fancy cakes and pastries.
The Centres first Official Function will see live music from the Colin Yates Band, the chance to practice your dance-steps, a buffet and music into the night, tickets are just £10 per person and will be on sale from the 1st October (not suitable for small children). The event runs from 7pm to 11pm.

Saturday November 10th

Childrens Party and Disco at The Centre with food and drink provided for kids aged up to school year 6. Tickets go on sale soon and are just £3 each. Every child gets to bring an adult (the Bar and Cafe will be open) and the Party runs from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.
Our Firework Spectacular kicks off at 7pm on the Playing Field. There will be a Military Theme to the event with added special effects to make the evening go with a bang! It really will be one not to be missed.
This year we are making sure there will be childrens rides and food available on and around the Field and The Centre - both before and after the Fireworks. This will include hotdogs, burgers, pizza, pie and peas or hot soup, all designed to keep us warm.
The Bar and Cafe will be open for drinks so why not stay around for a while and look around.

Sunday November 11th

The traditional Sunday Service in The Centre will start at 9.45am with the whole community encouraged to gather at St George’s Churchyard from 10.30am onwards.
At the War Memorial, we will honour the Fallen with poetry, a roll-call of the local soldiers and by observing the 2 minute silence with bugle accompaniment followed by the laying of wreaths.
Afterwards, everyone is invited back to The Centre for tea, coffee and cakes. The bar and cafe will be open for people to enjoy the various displays and conversation.
The Christmas Truce football match is still in the planning stage - if you would be interested in taking part or helping to organise a short and friendly kick about of local people to represent this famous event, please do get in touch.

All in all, this really does promise to be a Weekend to Remember for all sorts of reasons and we would love as many people as possible to join in. We hope you like the sound of what we have planned but if you would like to get involved in any way - or have any ideas to make the Weekend even better - please do get in touch with the Parish Office on 01709 364199.
