It was another great turnout at the October community trading day at the peace hall, such a variety of goods were on offer, honey, sauerkraut, kids games, clothes, plants, boomerang bags, computer parts and other things.  It’s always interesting to see what turns up although some will attest that sometimes you actually buy more than you sell!

The shared lunch was scrumptious as usual, with lots of tasty morsels to tantalize your taste buds.  Afterwards our workshops kicked off, with Josephine’s Storytelling session and the beading workshop with Segal.  It would be great to see some photos of the lovely creations, so we can post them onto our website. (Hint: email them here)

October 2018 storytelling

The theme for Storytelling at the October 2018 Trading Day was “An unforgettable character”, suggested by Jen Acevedo’s daughter, Elissiya. Participants shared fascinating memories of folks who’d inspired their lives by their qualities of love and courage.

Thanks to Jenn Wallace for bringing her amplifier to this session. In the echoey ambience of the Peace Hall, it can be hard to hear clearly especially if you have some hearing loss, so this makes the exercise a pleasure to attend.

November’s theme was chosen from several supplied by Alison Bird: What would you have done in my situation?

You can answer this with a true story, a tall story, a song or a poem. It can be thoughtful or amusing.

To make sure everyone gets a turn, it’s recommended you keep your story to no more than 5 minutes. Hope to see you there!

Just a friendly reminder to bring a GOLD COIN donation, as we need to pay for the hire of the Peace hall.  We have been having some great turn-outs, however we are still not covering the cost.
