Community Anniversary Weekend 2022
Our annual community weekend away is on!
Frontier Centre, Irthlingborough
Frontier Centre, Addington Rd, Irthlingborough, Wellingborough NN9 5UH, UK
The Community Anniversary Weekend is our annual weekend away for members and invited guests.
The event is held at the Rock UK Frontier Centre, Addington Rd, Irthlingborough, Wellingborough NN9 5UH. This is about 1 hour 45 minutes drive from Acton.
We will start at 10:00 on the Saturday morning (yes, it's an early start), but registration is from 9:00. We will finish at 3:30 on Sunday afternoon.
This is a Community event so the assumption is all members will be present. Of course this will not be possible for everyone so please let Tom know if you cannot be there. If you are not sure, please decide and confirm to Tom at least one week beforehand. We need to allocate rooms and organise discussion groups and services, and we need to pay the Frontier Centre for meals, so knowing who is coming really helps.
Talking of meals, please let Tom know if you have any specific dietary needs or allergies. He will inform the Centre, and you will be given a different coloured wrist-band on check-in so we can give the right meals to the right people.
Please pay be electronic transfer before the weekend. Jonathan will be happy to take cheques once there. Please do not make us have to chase you...
As always we are looking for some classy, comedic or choral contributions. Failing that, it's just us. Please dust of your old acts, or prepare new ones, and come ready to dazzle us with those talents you have been hiding. Elinor is coordinating the acts so please let her know what you have to offer.
What you need to bring...
Towels (the Centre provides bedding but not towels)
Torch (especially if you will be out and about on Saturday evening - it gets very dark)
Warm clothes (September evenings can be chilly, and depending on the weather, September days can also be chilly, and we will have all the windows open...)
Cup / mug (to help with the environment you may want to bring your own cup or mug)
Whatever you need for Saturday afternoon activities.
On the Sunday morning there will be a protestant service led by Rev. Peter Mckenzie and a Catholic mass celebrated by Fr John McKenna.
Health, Safety and Security
Parents, outside of sessions you are responsible for your children, but of course you know that.
The River Nene runs by the bottom of the hill and is a particular danger, especially for young children.
Locking rooms - we do not hand out room keys by default. The site is secure and we have never had an issue with theft. However, if you do want a room key you can ask a member of the Frontier Centre staff directly. There is a £10 charge for any keys not returned at the end of the weekend.
