Hi <<First Name>>

Tickets are now available in the Coffee Shop for the Latin American performance Mas Que Nada by Lancaster Millennium Choir. Read all about it below.

The Lancaster RSPB will be here in February, see Activity Groups news. Also the next Luncheon Club is about Japan, and the Knitter Natter Group welcomes new members. Walking Netball has restarted and is currently indoors. 

We have had a enquiry for the Beavers to go roller skating and they should have a good time at our next Roller Disco on 9th February.

If you fancy getting a group together say for a birthday party or other occasion there is a discount price - ten people for the cost of nine.

Fundraising - do you shop online? There is a way to collect FREE donations for The Centre every time you shop online at There are nearly 3000 retailers to choose from. Once you have made your purchase the retailer will make a donation to us at no extra cost whatsoever.  Our next fund raising efforts will be for new chairs for the hall so all donations will be gratefully received. 

Would you like to help us with fundraising? Please contact Maureen, email or call 01524 811316.

One more event to mention - the Family Fun Night on 2nd March, and more details will be in the next newsletter. If you haven't been before it is a great family fun evening - here's a taster of the performers, the Pavement Prats

Just to mention it's great that we're getting lots of likes and shares on Facebook and good reviews on Google My Business. Thanks everyone!

Dog Mess on the Field

A member of our Walking Football group has contacted us about the problem of dog mess - 

'It's a pleasure to take part in this activity but but there is a regular feature that spoils it - dog fouling.
Almost every week we find dog faeces on the pitch. This is a health and hygiene hazard to all people who use the field including the children who play football at weekends. Is it too much to ask dog owners to act responsibly and show respect for other users of the field?
Please would all dog owners to act responsibly and ensure that there is no dog fouling on the field.  It really is disgusting to have to try to avoid dog mess when playing football.  All we need is for people to show respect and take responsibility for their dogs.'

The Parish Council allows dog walkers to use the field to exercise their dogs. There are plenty of bins nearby where dog owners can put bags of dog mess. When you walk your dog there please remember to bring bags with you and if you are out walking at night please bring a torch and keep an eye out for their deposits.

It's unpleasant for anyone who uses the field to come across dog mess and not great for those who cut the grass and mark the pitches either.
