Looks like Monday 24th August is a popular date for the Christmas Party meeting.
Rather than replying by email, I’ve set up a doodle calendar so we can see who’s available to come to the meeting on the night and when the most convenient time is for everyone. Please click on the link below and submit your availability by Saturday 22nd August and then I’ll send out another email confirming the time.
It would be great if we can start spreading the word so that we can have as much help, input, ideas and free stuff as possible. So feel free to forward the Doodle calendar link to everyone that might be interested so we know how many people to expect at the meeting J
Look forward to meeting you all soon, Many thanks, Shehnaz picture of Bouncy castle from a previous summer bash
Shenaz and Sven local neighbours who organized Prtobert Rd street party are planning an event at Brixton Community Base If interested contact the blog and we’ll forward to them. (Ideas so far)
PART 1 – 50+ People
6.30 – 7.00 Drinks reception
– 1 free drink included in the price
7.00 – 8.00 Finger Buffet
PART 2 – 100+ People
e.g.a sketch comedian and is currently performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
8.30 Gospel Choir
– Sent out a few emails to local choirs, waiting for prices and availability
9.00 Ballroom/Latin Dance Class
– Salsa lesson at the street party and about 30 people took part

I thought we could hold the event on Saturday 5th, 12th or 19th December depending on when the majority of people can make it and when the entertainers are available.
