Tomorrow (Saturday 16th) the FAC will be running a 2 hour art and
story telling workshop for children and any help would be appreciated
to set up at 10am-ish. This is part of the Multi-Cultural Festival
2009 Press Launch. I have collected the blue gazebo from Mary today
and Yvonne and Jocelyn have volunteered to run the childrens workshop
but all extra help would be appreciated especially story telling.
many of the town top brass will be there and there is Nepalese food
snacks and the Whitstable Samba band to set the tone.The Festival will be over 4 days June 11th to 14th and the FAC
