Every table booked and loads of goodies and bargains for Christmas. Thanks Mo and team for making it happen and serving those all-important hot drinks and thanks everyone for coming. Watch out for the next one. But first, we have a pantomime next Saturday!

Some photos from last week's Brunswick Bonanza event, a day of information and activities sponsored by S4B, showcasing some of what is happening in our amazing neighbourhood. Loads of hints and tips for the winter including cost of living and home energy advice, how to stay warm and well, arts and crafts, money and budgeting tips, plus jobs, training and volunteering opportunities.
After another the sold-out panto 'Dick Whittington' in 2022, North West Theatre Arts Company return to Brunswick with their new all-singing, all-dancing, "it's behind you!" production of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. Part of Christmas at Brunswick 2023.
Jack, a poor country boy, trades the family cow for a handful of magic beans. What could possibly go wrong? Fun for all the family, with two performances at 2:30pm and 6:30pm on Saturday December 9. Tickets are now available online here. Or from 'Positive Steps' Monday to Thursday between 10am and 2pm.
You may have noticed some scaffolding outside our building again. This is the first stage of Phase 2 of our Refurb Project (Phase 2a) and involves a major repair on the roof of the Lounge – probably our most used room. This became urgent when the roof began to leak and water started coming in not just in the lounge but the newly refurbished hall. We were able to bring the roof repair forward thanks to a generous donation from one of our ex-members (the Brunswick Diaspora).
As this work involves clearing out the room itself, it seemed to make sense to refurbish the interior as well. We are contributing to this as a church and there are several options.

In the last week all sorts of things have been going on in Positive Steps. Here are just a few highlights. From the top: MacMillan Coffee Morning, Craft Club, Women's Footprints trip to the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) archives.
Positive Steps is every Monday to Thursday 10am to 2pm. Good fun, good company, lots to do, always a kettle on. Come and join in.
