Local Groups “market”

Date: 28th February 2014

The Cholsey Community Development Trust welcomed over 250 people  to the Cholsey Local Groups and activities "market place" in the newly refurbished Great Hall at Cholsey Meadows on Friday 28th February 7.30 to 9.30pm. Over 40 local groups were there so that everyone had a chance to find our what is going on in the neighbourhood and join in the things that interest them. We had lots of suggestions about the kind of activities you liked last year. The Community Trust launched its membership scheme and the CDT board answered questions. One stall holder said "I must say it was a fantastic event and it was great to see so many people attending. There was a real buzz about the place". The Community Choir sang and the Silver Band played. The Play Pavilion had a separate soft play area for little ones. And there was a raffle with prizes for a word or a phrase on "What I love about my community is....". Tea Four Teas Cafe sold slices of their delicious homemade cakes.

Maybe we'll do it again next year - if you have any ideas on this contact fiona@cholseycdt.org.uk.

Resident Clare McKeown took these great photos of the event. See "view full story".

Everyone Welcome!

CCDT Christmas Party

Date: 19th December 2014

When the Fair Mile was a hospital, the children (and parents) of the village were invited to The Great Hall at Christmas time for a party... we are reviving this tradition! The party will be on December 19th (the last day of the school term) from about 7-9pm - there will be a magician, music, some snacks and drinks and a visit from Father Christmas himself! This is a resident-led CCDT event with funding from Soha Housing's Wishing Well Fund and should be a grand occasion for everyone to enjoy. If you wish to help at this event, do contact Helen Jiggins in the CCDT Office in The Great Hall.
