Friday 8th December Stockfield’s Christmas Cracker at Cedars Acadamy (formerly Cottesbrooke Junior School). Free family event. Everyone welcome.

This is just to say congratulations! One of the photos each of you sent us has been selected for this year’s Acocks Green Calendar. We had over 100 photos submitted and it was very difficult to make a decision. In the end we used 4 photos from those submissions that we felt were most appropriate and eye-catching.
Each of you will receive a free copy of the calendar which you can collect this Sunday morning- 10.30am outside Acocks Green Library (some of the Village in Bloom volunteers will be around the area gardening at the time), or at the AG Lights Switch- On on Saturday 25th November where ViB will have a stall selling the exclusive calendars. If you cannot make either of these times then let us know and we can make alternative arrangements.
Thanks again for taking the trouble to send Village in Bloom your photos and we hope that you enjoy the calendar. If you wish to buy extra copies they will be available in local shops from Monday (Jeffries, S&H Jewellers, Beads and Bobbins). £6.50
Kind Regards

Acocks Green History Society presents: Chris Smith: Would You Believe It? Chris Smith presents some amusing stories but which ones are true? Thats for you to decide. £3 donation at end. Everyone welcome.

    Thank you for listing the concert on the 26th. This is being put together by a pianist friend called Michael Jones and me. We will be using organ, piano and we’ll have a quartet of singers, including Steve Davis, who has previously brought his Elmdon Choral Society (alas no more) to St Mary’s. There will be music by Acocks Green composers as well as, I think, more familiar pieces.
    Please note we will NOT now have a violin.

    Thanks for the info Sally. If you have a flyer to promote the workshops do pass it on to me to link into a listing.

  6. “Kimichi community choir was started to further the ideals and ethos of the school; getting pupils and people playing or singing whatever their ability. The choir rehearses every other week at the School, and is open to anyone who wishes to come along and make music. They rehearse a vast selection of Music, from Bach to Beatles, Musicals to Motets. As well as working towards their own concerts, the choir are currently working towards a grand gala event to be held alongside the Kimichi amateur orchestra, which is again open to anyone. Gareth Malone (The Choir, The Choir: Sing While you Work) tells us “Singing is good for your health, it lifts the spirits….what are you waiting for? There’s so much you can do”. Kimichi School says, exactly!” Rehearsing every other Monday (tonight!) at the school from 7-9pm.

    Hello Farah, thanks for the info, I’ve updated the What’s On Page. Is this also to replace the Drop in Sessions that were running at Acocks Green Medical Centre on Saturday mornings?
