In case you have missed it, or are not on the mailing list, here’s Brent’s latest Covid-19 advice and guidance.
The exhibition has opened. Here’s a little glimpse of what it looks like.
Viewings every Saturday and Sunday, 1200-1600, until 13 December.
We’re aiming to try and be open for the launch of the Museum of all Brent Life on 16 May. There will be a launch event with our Brent 2020 artist, and no doubt there will be a few choice refreshments too. It’s free. Do drop in.
We’re painting the library on Saturday 1 February, starting at 1000. We’re looking for anyone who’d like to help to get in touch.
If you can bring your own materials, fantastic – but some will be provided. Just wear comfortable old clothes.
We’ll provide tea, coffee and biscuits, and there will be a few laughs along the way.
To sign up, please send your full name, postcode and mobile number by email to firstname.lastname@example.org,uk and say you want to volunteer for painting duty. If you think you’re ever likely to do a shift in the library when it’s open, please also say so.
We are especially keen to hear from people who have experience of leading teams on physical activities like this – you’ll need humour, tact, patience and a firm demeanour! Please get in touch!
If you can’t paint, but would like to contribute, we have a wish list over at Amazon. Even if you’re not an Amazon fan, you can view the items there and buy from somewhere else, we don’t mind.
