I thought it would be interesting to create a group dedicated to local tales, written works, legends, poetry and prose from these here parts.  General guidelines for posting are that it doesn't have to be true, or validated, but obviously validation helps any tale.  It can be your own work or someone elses, but please try and acknowledge the author of the original piece.

This is our first Tuesday of the month meeting.  We've got some announments regarding the Link4Life bid, and I think Helen has sent you all details about that.  So, we should all be quite clear about what we are discussing.

We've had a fantastic 2014, and I'm pretty damn sure it's just gonna keep getting better and better in 2015.  We've already got quite a few bookings and events sorted.

We're starting at 6:30PM prompt and finishing at 7:00PM......

As part of our commitment to becoming a voluntary arts organisation, we have decided it prudent to have a brief monthly meeting.  We will possibly have a slightly longer meeting quarterly, and take stock at an annual general meeting.  The idea of the monthly meeting is to check we're steering the desired course, if there are any issues, and that any suggestions can be minuted and genuinely considered.

We're having a procession (carol singer style) around LIttleborough and Smithybridge to collect Foodbank donations from residential properties on Friday 26th December, 11-5.  We'll perform in certain areas, maybe knock on doors and encourage donations of none perishable foodstuffs for the Rochdale Foodbank.

Super Awesome Ceilidh with Alex and Nicola....  We're not performing, but it will be great if we could all make it to this brilliant night out, and celebrate being Oakenhoofers....
