Thank you to all the staff at BAL. Your kindness and support was my lifeline during the pandemic. I am looking forward to continue my studies, as well as being a "study buddy". Whenever I walk into a centre in Aylesbury, or get into a online meeting or classroom, I feel I am at home, enveloped in love, care and warmth. The manner in which everyone took up the challenges posed during lockdown and even now was phenomenal, the amount of hard work and creative ideas that went into reaching out to learners and keeping us all engaged, preparing us for new challenges as we resume a new "normal"; is excellent. 💓💓💓
Lots of #fun to be had at Family Centres across #wycombe and #marlow over the #summer #ThingsToDoWithKids #thingstodo #activities #youngpeople

Hello lovely people! The Theatre Shed are starting up another community theatre workshop group for adults - this is something we have held in the past, and we are excited to reinstate it! The workshops will run on Tuesday evenings 6.45-8.30pm out of The Beacon School, and they are a 'Pay By Donation' format, so you can pay what you can on the day. We want to increase access to the arts for the adults in our community, whatever their background, ability, disability or financial circumstance. If you know anyone who may benefit from performing arts workshops like this, please share this flyer with them and ask them to drop in! We have lots of industry professionals coming to visit and run masterclasses in Music, DJ'ing and band composition, story telling, puppetry, ceroc dancing and film and TV scripts, amidst our usual PA skills workshops.

Comment, like and share! Feel free to pop along too!

Hi sorry to bother you. We are a small glass company based in Essex and due to moving premises we are having to sell our kiln so have been looking around for university/ colleges that may be interested as it is too large for most home studios. It has recently been advertised on the kilncare page . It is a kiln care FK9 ( 2m x 1m) internal size and is 4 years old. It’s in excellent working condition and we will be very sorry to see it go but do not have enough room for it at our new premises.If you think this is something you may be interested in we would be glad to hear from you . Thanks Debbie and Angie - Spellbound Glass
