UNACC Family Fun Day
We are very pleased with how the UNACC Family Fun day went on Friday April 8th. The sun shone, the BBQ sizzled and everyone enjoyed themselves, most importantly we raised just under £800, which goes straight back into running UNACC for your benefit. We would like to thank all of you who volunteered on the day, working on stalls and in the kitchen – we simply couldn’t do it without you and of course a big thank you to all who donated gifts for our tombola. A special thank you to Jean Tennant who worked tirelessly for weeks driving around gathering bric-a-brac to sell on the day and Sophia Yearwood who secured games from the scouts and the bouncy castle from a family friend. We must also thank the lovely James & Lucy from Martin & Co Estate agents for sponsoring the event.
We held a memorial lunch on Tuesday 26th April in honour of Gwen, who was an important part of UNACC’s history and a valued member. It was great to see so many UNACC members there to celebrate this wonderful lady’s life and raise a glass to her – thanks very much to David Cheetham from Catalina court for the bubbly and donation. Gwen was a supportive member of UNACC’s Trustee board, and active in many other committees including the 60+ club – we are sorry that nobody from the 60+ club was able to come to the memorial. Gwen was much loved will be dearly missed.
We will be holding an exhibition of artwork by our members on Friday 27th May in the pavilion hall. There will be tea, coffee & cakes served, and entry is free.
UNACC Film Club, Grease is the Word!
We will be showing the classic film Grease on Wednesday 25th of May 2016. Please could you come in fancy dress as characters from the movie, and you can be a Pink lady, a T-bird or any other character you like! We will be serving milk shakes & burgers just like the Frosty Palace! We need to apply for funding to ensure the film club continues next year so we want to take lots of pictures with the place looking nice and full, please put this date in your diary.
We would like to put on a photographic exhibition with you, our members as the theme, and we ask that you bring in pictures of yourselves growing up and in your heyday, we will take copies and return the originals. We will announce the date of the exhibition once we have gathered enough images.
