June‘s going off the grid for a little while, taking a bit of a break after a hectic couple of months, so no Girls Around Town next weekend.
But don’t worry, she’ll be back behind the mic at the end of October, inviting you to Put On Your Sunday Best on Halloween!
In the meantime, watch this space for the podcast of yesterday’s interview with Helen Stanbridge from Newark and Sherwood CVS about its Door2Door transport service…
And here’s a reminder of some the events mentioned on the same show that you and your kids might like to check out.
A little bit of self defense
If you went along to Newark’s Fun Palace at the beginning of the month, you may well have seen the self defence demo that took place in the Civil War Centre.
It was run by Newark Ninjitsu‘s Kiyth Fotitt, who’s putting on another event, this one especially for ladies, on Thursday 21 October.
The Ladies Self Defense Class runs from 10am to 12 noon at BeanBlock Cafe in the St Marks Shopping Centre – another free event but you do need to register online here to book your place.
Fun and games at Newark Library
Are you looking for some fun for the kids on a Saturday morning? Then the place to head for is Newark Library, where two new events will be on offer every weekend in the run up to Christmas.
Both will be taking place from 10am to 12 noon, alternating each weekend, with the Lego Club – a chance to build with Lego and join in the library’s Lego Challenge Themes – kicking things off on Saturday 23 October.
Then on Saturday 30 October it’s the Games Club, when youngsters can try out a few games and make some new friends.
The two Clubs alternate every week until Saturday 11 December – they’re absolutely free and kids of all ages are welcome but they must be accompanied by an adult.
Next Sunday’s litter pick
Do you live in or around South Muskham and Little Carlton and have a bit of free time on Sunday 24 October?
If you do, Charles Brightmore could really use your help!
He’s organising a litter pick in the area and he’s looking for a few more volunteers to get involved…
All equipment will be provided – just bring your own gloves, head over to the South Muskham Roundabout for the 9.30am start and help spruce up the area along the Great North Road and the A616 through Little Carlton.
