Newsletter October 2015

This half-term, our youth club will be holding one of its most exciting events to date; on Thursday 29th October, we’ll be hosting a Youth Talent Show Competition. Open to 11 to 24 year olds with a variety of talents, including singers, dancers, poets, freestylers and more, the competition promises to be a real show-stopper. And there’ll be prizes worth up to £250.

A panel of judges, together with the audience, will decide who will be the winners. The after-party will be hosted by none other than DJ Lumes and, of course, there will be free food for everyone!

Whether you would like to perform or be part of the audience, you are all welcome to attend. And there’ll also be special prizes on offer for a very lucky audience member. Doors open at 6pm and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Count Me In!

Who would you think of as the face of Mary’s?

Most of our visitors think it’s Alison. Since she heads up the reception desk at our Neighbourhood Centre, she’s usually the first face they see.

“I’ve been working as part of the bookings team at Mary’s for just under a year and am so lucky to work with fantastic colleagues and also to meet the nicest people, who often come to Mary’s on a daily basis and whom I really get to know. I have my own lovely family – my partner and two children,who are 11 and 9 (not to mention Marley, our boxer dog, who often get compared to a small Shetland pony!) – but Mary’s feels like one big family too.

With my smaller family, I love to travel. We’ve been to Egypt, Cyprus, Greece, Portugal, Spain, France and have just booked our holiday to Jamaica next year. We love all the different food but my favourite is Caribbean so I’m really looking forward to our trip to Jamaica. And, if you see someone nibbling on a piece of cheese at Mary’s, it’ll be me. I adore cheese…any cheese, Blue, Brie, Camembert, Feta, Cheddar, Halloumi…the list is endless!

I used to be a keen horse rider and, in my teens, I represented Camden in the London Youth Games for 3 years. Now I only ever get to ride when I’m on holiday – life is so busy. But that’s what I enjoy about being part of Mary’s team. It’s so exciting to seeing it becoming more and more the hub of the local community”.

Ballet North is in the house

Taught by highly experienced, IDTA-accredited teachers, students are encouraged to develop their natural ability and creativity in a safe and friendly environment, with equal emphasis placed on technique, discipline and enjoyment. Ballet is a great way of developing confidence, spatial awareness, fitness and flexibility whilst having fun and making new friends.
