The Lounge will be hosting a FREE lemonade factory where you can come along and make some real lemonade and even print your own labels. It will be running from 12pm to 4pm on Sunday 31st August. So feel free to drop in and make some tasty lemonade. Oh did we say it was free?

Lounge LogoAlvechurch Communities Together Management Group is very aware that we do not use the word thank you enough to our volunteers. We are very grateful for the help that you give us and appreciate that the project would not be where it is without the support of all those that help at the Lounge on a voluntary basis As a volunteer I am sure it is sometimes difficult to get an overview of what is actually happening with the project and almost impossible to spend some quality time with othervolunteers and staff.

We should therefore like to invite you to The Lounge on Monday 14th July at 7.30pm to share in some light refreshments, hear an overview of the successes and challenges of the project and meet other volunteers and staff in a relaxed atmosphere. In the meantime Sally and Emily are planning to set up a display in the Library during Volunteers' Week (2nd -6th June) to highlight the good work that is done by our volunteers and to encourage and inspire new people to support us in this way. With this in mind we have attached a questionnaire that will help us to get a volunteers' perspective on working at the Lounge. Please can you return to us by the end of this  month? It is very important to us that you have your voice heard. Thank you once again for all your help and look forward to seeing you in July


The next skiffle afternoon is going to be on July the 7th at The Lounge

Treble Clef

Once again the 5,6 Specials will be playing live at The Lounge and everyone is welcome. As always we strongly recommend you book in advance by buying your tickets from The Lounge as this is proving more and more popular each time. and we can't guarantee you can get in otherwise.

The live music event hosted by The Lounge was a fantastic result.

The night time live music event  raised in the region of £1500, after the costs of hosting were taken into account, which goes some way to running The Lounge and all the associated community projects. We would like to thank everyone who attended, took part in the raffle or in anyway helped out. A big thank you also goes out to Max Lyrical who provided the nights music entertainment, without whom, this would never of happened.
 On the night, along with the music (and dancing), there was a fantastic South American themed buffet, a ad-hoc win a bottle competition and the raffle.
Also we would like to thank the following companies for their kind donations for the raffle:
  • Alvechurch Boat Centre
  • Red Lion/Vintage Inns
  • The Weighbridge
  • Tudor Rose Fish Bar
  • The New Dilshad
  • Crows Butchers
  • The Co-op 

So once again thanks to everyone involved in this event and we look forward to your continuing support.
