Film and Music Festival
Over the last week-end of January the Music Night and Film Society combined to put on a highly succesful series of events, and raising in the process a nearly £1000 for the Institute funds.
On Saturday 18 November the second Silverdale Artisan Makers' Market took place at the Institute. Twelve invited makers displayed their varied work. Refreshments were sold in aid of the Morecambe Bay Foodbank and with some additional generous donations we raised £331.82
Field Day Back In Style
A team of Thrift Ladies and trustees used the quiet time at the institute for a spot of painting.
In the Pink
The Thrift Ladies organised a fundraising event for Breast Cancer Now! and raised a splendid total of £1000.
David Brown's Funeral
David Brown, who had done so much to restore the Institute sadly passed away in October. He will be sadly missed but the splendidly refurbished Institue will stand as his memorial.
Lots of people enjoyed a jubilee party organised at the last minute by Lorraine Greenall. Thanks Lorraine!
New Outside Lights
We've updated the outside lights, and fitted a better fire alarm.
Local curtain and blinds retailer Portabello have fitted some lovely new blinds. This was at the request of the film club so as to be able to keep the hall dark when required.
