Do you want the good news, or the bad news?

Do you want the good news, or the bad news?

We will start with the bad, and end on a high note. If you follow us on social media, or happened to pick up a copy of the Daily Echo last week, you might have seen our bad news. 

Around 6.30am on Easter Sunday Sholing Valleys Study Centre was broken into and several items were stolen, and they damaged the centre by forcing entry. Thankfully they didn't take anything irreplaceable. 

To try and cover the costs (we are currently unsure what our insurance will cover) we have set up a GoFundMe page. 

The good news is how generous members of the public have been. Current total is running at £1355. Which will really help us fix the damage done. This feels even more generous considering the current cost of living crisis that people are experiencing. 

The donations are definitely a reason to be cheerful, but that's not the good news we want to share with you. 

Coming up on Saturday 11th of May we are going to have our biggest event of the year with our Spring Fayre. This is our opportunity to hang out with you lot, have fun listen live to music, learn about nature, support local charities and businesses, play some fun games, and of course raise some more funds to keep the lights on, and the events coming. 

If you would like to support us, and we appreciate that not everyone can give money, then we are looking for volunteers to help us on the day for the Spring Fayre. We are looking for people to lend a hand, even just a couple of hours will be appreciated! We need a hand setting up at the start, and packing down at the end of the day. We are looking for people who can help run our games, serve cups of tea, and generally make things run a little smoother for everyone involved. If you think you can help , we would love to hear from you. Please send us an email.

Thanks for reading
