How are we going?
Judge us. No really, please judge us.
Now that daylight savings is behind us (boo), we feel like this also marks the end of one of the busiest times of our year, giving us a bit more breathing space to look towards the next 10 months or so. But before we do that, we’d love to know how you think we’ve been going and what new things you might like to see happen here at the Centre. We’ve whipped up a quick survey to give you the opportunity to feed back to us and to share your ideas.
Please head to our online survey and share your thoughts with us - it'll take you all of just 60 seconds! In a few weeks time, we'll review the feedback and suggestions, and then decide where-to-from-here. (Sorry, no flash prizes or gift vouchers to bribe you with, but we may share some homemade baking with anyone who really needs their arm twisting…)
Newtown News - April 2015
Read online or pick up a copy of our April edition of the Newtown News from one of our local cafes or businesses - or come visit us at the Community Centre and get it here!
In this issue we celebrate Earth Day by looking at the monstrous feat of helping 80,000 fair goers to recycle at Newtown Fair, and talk to Nati - a keen environmentalist from Argentina - as our Notorious Newtowner. We also learn about the other side of WWI and the conscientious objectors making a stand 100 years ago.
