We will be gathering in person, but if you would rather join via an online platform, please contact Ruth – sasquatchkiwi@gmail.com and she will make sure that this option is available as well.

Bring your own drinks. Damascus will be open, so you can also get some delicious Syrian food from Hasan. 

Have a chat with other local families and learn some new board games. All ages welcome.

Hope to see you there!

Vogelmorn Community Group to run the Vogelmorn Hall

From 1 September 2019 the Vogelmorn Community Group (VCG) will manage the Vogelmorn Hall. This follows a successful four-year period of the Brooklyn Community Association running the Hall and bookings. We want to shout out to BCA and Euan Harris, who has warmly administered bookings and been a friendly face around the Hall.

Since its formation in 2015 the VCG has been running the former Bowling Club rooms on the south side of the Green as a multi-use community resource for public hire, community meetings and events. Managing the Hall together with the clubrooms will help foster an integrated Precinct identity.

VCG Trustee Jeremy Macey says, “We’re grateful to Euan and the BCA for taking such great care of the Hall and its users, whose numbers have gone up in the four years they’ve been running it. VCG looks forward to welcoming new users alongside current ones, and sharing this beautiful building with an even wider group of people.”

Bookings and availability for existing users will remain in place. Any queries can be directed to Jana at vogelmornbc@gmail.com.

Milkthistle

Friday 20th September, 7:30pm

Wellington band Milkthistle (Hamish Graham – guitar/vocals/songwriter, Delia Shanly – drums/vocals, David Downes – keyboards/bass/vocals, David Daniela – viola & Robert Ibell – cello) play their unique style of original string-based indie-folk-rock in a gig.

Hamish Graham formed the band in 1993 to play his growing number of original songs. He especially wanted to utilise the cello, with its rich sonority, melodic possibilities and power in the lower register, to complement drums and guitar.

Over the years, the band has spiralled through various Wellington music scene regulars – with each new incarnation making the songs their own.

Like a river you can’t step in twice – a new band member can suddenly transform a song from the sublimely sweet folk to hard out rock, pseudo-jazz to screaming thrash, classical to upbeat pop.

Doors open 7pm. Tickets $15 in advance from Eventfinda (service fees may apply). Door sales $20. BYO liquid refreshments.
