Happy New Year Ahead!
Members of ENKCA met in January to familiarise themselves with the operation of kitchen equipment and erection of staging for our new and adventurous life in our magnificent new hall. Time and thought was also spent formulating our new calendar of events which will be released soon.
First and foremost, a taster class of Zumba exercise dancing is planned for early evening, Friday 18th February. All welcome, contact Stuart Wright, 840236.
We welcome Margaret Mowatt to the role of 50/50 Sweep organiser and thank the outgoing incumbent, Diane Ryan, for her good work in the post. During the three years Diane has been organising the 50/50 Sweep it has brought in £3300 towards the cost of building our hall.
Margaret is keen to bring in new names to contribute to the lottery pot and share in the 50/50 draw – contact Margaret, 840447 for more information.
This month’s lottery winners were drawn by Fiona Mackintosh of Eassie School and the winners were – 1st prize of £74.67 - Neil Ballantyne, Newhouse of Eassie, Runners up of £9.33 – Verity Webster, Castleton and Evelyn Philips, Eassie.
We have had a number of tentative - and some definite - enquiries about the possibility of hiring the hall for sporting activities, meetings and business purposes. ENKCA members will be delighted to discuss such uses and to demonstrate the potential of the facilities within the building.
Already, the possibility of an after school sports club for school age participants, a weekly café/ social, a computer club, exercise classes, a music festival and a sports rally have been mooted as well as private hire for social functions. To discuss rates for potential hires, contact bookings secretary, Mary Marshall 840415.
