Boxing Day Sharing Lunch 12-4pm

Feeling a bit lonely this Christmas? Or just fancy a change of scene and a bit of friendly conversation. At last year’s sharing lunch we had people from at least 5 countries… who knows who will show up this time.

Bring anything to eat or drink that you are happy to share. Leftovers very welcome!

Please pass the word on to any neighbours you think might enjoy a bit of company.

12-4pm in the Hill Station, Kitto Road SE14

Caribbean Christmas Dinner 18 Dec 1-11pm

A great chance to experience Trinidadian flavours with a London Twist!
You are cordially invited to this Sundays Fundraiser event for New Cross Learning (formerly New Cross Library) in the Scout Hut (25 Breakspears Rd, SE4)
Volunteers required: door donations shifts, cleaning, delivering flyers).
We are looking for some live musicians/art performers to come down and make this event extra special, our djs on the night would also love a break I’m sure for some real live music too. If you know anyone who’d be interested in taking part or dropping in pass this email or my details on…See the event on Facebook:
Many thanks,
Darren (organiser)

Stamp making workshop. Dec 4 and 11

 Candida is a book binder from New Cross and makes greeting cards, books and gifts using her handcarved stamps.
Try your hand at her workshop.
It’s a great skill and can be used to make items really personal (it’s also very quick which comes in handy when making a lot of wrapping paper!). I’ve attached a poster and would be really grateful if you could help me out by spreading the word! The courses will be taught in small groups of 5-6 so people will get plenty of one to one help and time to create beautiful wrapping paper, simple books and cards while having a friendly chat! All the best
