30 November 2011

Hello everyone,
The end of the year is fast approaching and there are a number of upcoming
events to mention.
_Sumner-Redcliffs Community Carols _is taking place for the second year
running in Scarborough Park (weather permitting) on Thursday 8 December
2011. The community barbecue begins at 6 pm and the Sumner Silver Band will
play some light music from around 6.30 pm. The massed singing, with a visit
from a not-so-mysterious stranger, kicks off at 6.45 pm. The event features
the Sumner Silver Band, the Sumner School Choir and other acts, and should
be a very fun, family event. Everyone is very welcome to come and join us.
For Redcliffs folk who don’t have vehicles, there will be transport arranged
to take you down to Scarborough Park from the Redcliffs Community
Information Centre.

_Redcliffs Community Men’s Shed group _is meeting for a discussion about the
concept on Friday 9 December at 10.30 am in the Redcliffs Information
Centre. Blokes who are keen to get involved in this project are most welcome
to join us. Check out find out more about
these types of projects.

Christmas breakups.
