I hope to start producing the newsletter in other languages this month, and I would like to hear from anyone who would be willing to translate it into Polish or other languages.
We have made a start on the Burbage Yarnbomb Project with a small display in Featherston Drive.
In 2016 we plan to have displays of knitted and crocheted displays all over Burbage throughout the year, and you are invited to take part. If you can’t knit or crochet there will be “have a go” days for beginners 🙂
We would like to hear from individuals or groups in Burbage who would like to take part, and from owners of shops, businesses or public spaces who would like to host a display.
If you can knit or crochet a small item we would love to add it to our ‘yarnbomb pole’ so please get busy with your needles now!
To find out more about this project please email email@example.com
Now winter is creeping up on us it’s a good time to think about new groups and activities in Burbage.
Freestyle Burbage aims to “celebrate our community and our creative spirit” so we try to encourage events and activities which are free (if possible), happen in the parish of Burbage (not just in the village), involve as many local people as possible, and are a bit different from anything already happening. We like to focus on people actually getting involved and doing things, without a lot of bureaucracy, committees etc, and not being passive audiences.
So, what are people interested in? Most groups can start small in people’s homes without too much organisation, and move to a bigger venue if necessary when they get bigger. Some ideas might be…
* Frisbee/dog Frisbee
* street football
* walking football
* book club
* play reading/acting
