Christmas Craft Fair – Sat 29th November

Newcastle CCE are holding our annual Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday 29th November and we are currently asking all our members if they have any unused new items like tins of sweets/biscuits, toys or toiletries to donate towards the tombola stand. If so, could you please bring them along any Thursday evening or Saturday morning and give to any committee member. Many thanks.

New term letter from our Chairperson

A chairde,

As another new term begins I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our returning members and to the overwhelming number of new members who have joined us this year.nbsp;

As we now have so many children attending a large variety of classes it is necessary to highlight a few health and safety guidelines;

– Children must be accompanied into the lodge, sign in at the main desk and proceed to their tuition room.

– Parents/Guardians are not permitted to disturb classes.nbsp; If you have any queries, please speak to a committee member at the main desk.

– Newcastle CCÉ are NOT responsible for children/young people before, between or after classes.

– Can parents/guardians when parking be mindful of other business users here at the lodge and do NOT park in spaces reserved for those businesses.

We would like to thank you for your co-operation with the above points and hope you have an enjoyable year ahead.

Finally as you may be aware Newcastle CCE are holding our annual Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday 29th November and we are currently collecting for the Tombola Stall.nbsp; Any donations of unwanted, unused gifts for example soap sets, tins of biscuits/sweets, ornaments ornbsp; cuddly toys would be greatly appreciated.
