After many years of organising and being involved in community activities, Dawn Clarke, manager of the Local Area Partnership (LAP) for Cheshire East Council suggested I develop a Coomunity Group.
Neil Brookfield came up with the name – CREATIVE CREWE
Mark Sheeky designed the artwork for advertising and we now have a huge banner to use when we are promoting our various events. This will become our branding.
I wanted also, to diversify in the shop and become an outlet for local artists and craftworkers to display and sell their products because we don’t have another venue like this in Crewe.
The response to the advert in the Chronicle has been brilliant and I am amazed by the talent I am seeing.
Our first community event is our annual Poetry Blast.
Date: Friday 2nd May
Venue to be confirmed
Jim Bennett & Angela Topping have both agreed to return.
This year as we commemorate the centenary of WW1 we will include works by some of the well known poets from this era.
There will be other events promoted soon. Please pop into the shop to see the new array of craftwork. CAROL :)
