Did you know that we first opened our doors in 2003? That makes us 20 years old.
If you have a particular memory of something you did with CrossLinks or something CrossLinks did for you, we’d love to hear from you. You could contact us or put up a post on this website. Alternatively you could put up a post on our FaceBook page.
We’re very grateful to all the volunteers and Trustees who have contributed to our successes over the years. As a “thank you” to them we’re going to have a BBQ / party in June. And we’ll be inviting all the current members of our clubs etc. So if you have ever had a connection with us – whether as a user of our services, or as a volunteer – and you don’t receive an invitation in the next month or so to the June party, please forgive our omission and get in touch. The more, the merrier.
We’re very grateful for the generosity of the St James Place organisation, which has awarded us a grant large enough to offer a day’s outing to the members of our Friday Club and their carers. The last outing we ran was to Cadburys World. This time we’re investigating an event in the better weather when we can do something outdoors. We haven’t booked anything yet. But here’s a clue to the activity that’s top of our ‘to visit’ wish list: it involves Alpacas!
“Watch this space” as they say.
We’re pleased to welcome Gareth Chapman to our Board of Trustees. Gareth has supported us in lots of ways in the past, and he brings much experience and wisdom with him.
Here at CrossLinks we’re pleased that four of our activities are now running:
Teddy Tots is available in the Water Eaton Church Centre every Friday term time morning, from 9.30 – 11.30am. Bring your pre-school youngster along for a play; you get a cup of tea and a biscuit. All for £2 a session.
The Disabled Club is holding monthly meetings in the Water Eaton Church Centre on the first Wednesday of every month, from 1.00 – 4.00pm. If you’d like to know more and/or join in, please leave a message via the ‘Contact Us’ page.
Water Eaton Community Larder. The larder is open from 2.00 – 4.00pm every Tuesday afternoon in the Water Eaton Church Centre. Membership costs £10 a year. Members can buy shopping for £3.50 per week for an individual, and help reduce perfectly good food going to waste. Individual membership provides up to 10 items of non-perishables (pasta, tins, sauces etc) per week plus free fruit and vegetables. If you’re interested, why not call in for a look-see?
MK Money Lifeline. A drop-in is open in the Water Eaton Church Centre from 2.00 – 4.00pm each Tuesday. Pop in to see if we can help you deal with money worries, benefit applications or budgeting advice.
