Lots going on this month
This Thursday and next (10th and 17th November) at Union Corner, Union Street. Fast and Funny, a local theatre company, will be running a free taster workshops for comedy sketches. If successful they will run a series of free workshops that will result in a performance at the Theatre Royal in February. Their last shows sold out. Sounds like a lot of fun and aimed at everyone so even if you’re not very confident or aren’t too sure how funny you can be give a taster session a go – you might be surprised. ‘In our workshops you will learn key skills in performance, theatre-making and creative writing that will enable you to bring your funniest ideas to life!’ Just turn up at 7.30 pm, the workshop will finish at 9. Sessions supported by Stonehouse Time Bank and open to all. Poster attached.
This swap has been a long time in the organising but we have finally arranged to work on a garden wall – from 1.30 pm on the afternoon of Thursday 17th. The work isn’t glamorous – it will involve taking down stones and removing ivy – in preparation for the next stage when a stonemason will oversee Time Bank volunteers in the re-building of the wall. The house is close to Stoke Damerel Church, if interested contact Mary on 01752651746 for the address and directions. Wear old, warm clothes and stout shoes and bring work gloves if you have them. After all this time I hope we don’t have to cancel because of the weather, but leave your contact details with Mary just in case.
On Saturday 19th November from 11 tidy a back yard in Adelaide Street and planning an edible garden. Refreshments and tools provided. Again dress for work and the weather. Reply to this e-mail for further details.
On Monday and Tuesday 28th and 29th November students from Plymouth College of Art will be coming along to Union Corner to run lino and mono printing workshops. Sessions are 9.30 – 12.30 and 1.30 – 4.30. Come along to just one or all of them. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you are coming so we can even out the numbers.
Always lovely to see Stonehouse Time Bank members and passers by at Union Corner on a Wednesday afternoon. Last week we stayed open later than usual due to families dropping in on the way home from school. Happy to do this again if there is the demand. We are there between 2 and 4 – possibly later. We also had home-made cake, harvested our first crop of radishes and planted rhubarb last week.
