September 2021 Calendar

Hi everyone – I am afraid that the threat of Covid-19 is still with us, so do please all take care! Our September Calendar reflects growing confidence with folk holding classes and events, but do get in touch with the organiser of your particular interest to ensure that all is going smoothly! Having said that – the Guides, Crochet Group, Simply Walks, the Key Stage 2 Art Group are all planning to go ahead – and a couple of private functions, as well as our own AGM – enjoy!

Hub Open Day

Glorious Day on 28th August 2021 – Bank Holiday Saturday – a Free Barbeque, with the addition of lovely cakes, shortbread and flapjacks made by lovely village folk – also Tesco in Tring donated around £50 worth of groceries and essential stuff to make a Barbeque work! Many thanks to all!!

July 2021 Calendar

Hey everyone! Some good stuff starting to happen! Simply Walks of course continues, the regular KS2 Art Class on a Monday, Guides on Tuesday evenings and our favourite Crochet Group meet on Friday mornings! Also this month a Private Party is kicking off our Party sessions, and Beacon ‘Mini-Lit’ is in on 10th, with a Wedding Celebration to cap it all off! Really excited that things are properly beginning again…….!!!!

June 2021 Calendar!

Hi everyone – Classes tend to follow School Half-Term, of course, so not a lot booked in during the first week of June! Slowly, slowly though – we are pleased that Simply Walks continues apace (!), the KS2 Art Class, Guides and the Crochet Group all return after Half-Term – and then the Beacon Choir make a very welcome return (the acoustics for music and singing are excellent!).

May 2021 Calendar!

Hi everyone – a joy this is to be posting a more meaningful calendar for this month, although all is still very much in the hands of the Covid-19 Restriction Road Map going to plan – we are excited, nonetheless! Simply Walks and the KS2 Children’s Art Class, Guides; the Local and Police Commissioner Elections are on 6th May, with any luck at all our favourite Crochet Group restarts on 21st May, an Eagle Society Meeting on 22nd May, an Arts Workshop on 26th May, and we hope to host an Amnesty International 60th Anniversary Socially Distanced Film Show on 28th May – lets hope that the Road Map doesn’t direct us off the road!

April Opening UP!!

So very pleased that we can start opening up after this latest lockdown – although we are limited to Children’s Educational Activities in the main – and to this end we have a Children’s Art Workshop every Monday afternoon, with the Guides in every Tuesday. We are able to hold very small meetings also, and held our Trustees Meeting on 14th April. Things are a little better during May – as well as the regular bookings mentioned above, the Local and Police Commissioner Elections are on 6th May, an Eagle Society Meeting on 22nd May, an Adult Arts Workshop on 26th May, and we hope to host an Amnesty International 60th Anniversary Socially Distanced Film Show on 28th May – watch this space!

Hopefully a Happier New Year!

Hi everyone – we start the year with trepidation – sadly severely locked down until at least mid-February, but we have hope! The supportive ‘Whats-Appening in Ivinghoe Mutual Aid Group’ is with us still, using the Hub’s phone number 01296-661666 as a helpline – successful in running medicines from the Pharmacy around the village and down to Great Gap, the Group members also arranging for shopping for sheltering neighbours, dog walking and helping out as best we can! In the meanwhile – stay safe and healthy – we look forward to seeing your friendly faces just as soon as we can!

Happy Christmas to all!!

Ho folks – all Hub Trustees wish everyone as good a Christmas as you are able to have! We reflect on the year which started out so hopeful – Trustees Russ Eyre and Bob Corn up a ladder painting the new Vent Extract System which we had had installed into the Café’s Kitchen, then arranging for a new floor in the Main Hall with new floor finishing in the Hall and Café – then Covid hit!!! Virtually all Bookings dried up almost immediately from March 2020 – we hastily negotiated Grants (three by now!) to keep all afloat, and we continue to keep the ‘Back Room’ stuff going – keeping abreast with all Government Covid-19 updates, and installing the necessary hand-sanitisers, signs, etc – including the required NHS Tracking Code Signs! Also – reading meters, negotiating services maintenance contracts, emptying the refuse bins which hang on the Hub fences, a bit of gardening, paying bills and all of the stuff necessary to keep the Hub going! Carol (our Chair) set up the Whats-Appening in Ivinghoe Mutual Aid Group, using the Hub’s phone number as a helpline – successful in running medicines from the Pharmacy around the village and down to Great Gap, the Group members also arranging for shopping for sheltering neighbours, dog walking and helping out as best we can! After all of that – again, we wish everyone a Safe and Happy Christmas – and for a good, vaccine supported 2021!
