A round-up of the news from Montgomery from the past week

Repair Café March 2022

Visitors to Montgomery Energy Group’s recent Repair Café were able to sit outside enjoying the weather, cake and chit-chat while fixperts worked their magic.

All sorts of items were fixed from radios, a lamp, an electric drill and even a milk frother to jewellery and bikes as well as many tools and scissors sharpened. 

Volunteer Pat Turner said: “I had a great afternoon helping out at the Repair Café. It was great to see everyone after a two-year break. We were kept very busy with loads of repairs and managed to save so many items from landfill. Here’s to the next one!”

Jeremy Thorp, one of the organisers, added: “We’re really pleased to see how much the community enjoyed our first Repair Café this side of Covid. It’s great that people now save things to bring them to us instead of throwing them away. We hope to do many more.”

MEG and the fixperts are hoping to arrange a Repair Café in the town every couple of months, and future dates will be announced soon. They would be happy to hear from fixperts and other volunteers wishing to join their friendly team.

After School Club gets active with Clubbercise

Regular Clubbercise sessions have recently been added into the mix of activities that Montgomery After School Club children take part in.

Clubbercise is a fun body workout with a good soundtrack to get your body moving, writes Josh Cardwell in Year 5.

The Clubbercise teacher is Jodie. It takes place once a month at Montgomery School After School Club. You need to wear trainers and sportswear, like shorts and a t-shirt as you might get sweaty!

To make it exciting we switch the hall lights off and have flashing disco lights and you can even get free light-up sticks that look a bit like small light sabres!

Easter Egg Trail continues

The letters are up around town, the baskets of eggs are fully stocked, and children are getting out and enjoying an Easter Egg Trail around Montgomery with their families which continues through to April 26. 

Pick up a map for £2 from Bunners on Arthurs Street, or Spar in Broad Street, and follow the trail around the town to find the letters and make an Easter word. Once you complete the trail and word, you can collect a chocolate reward from Bunners or Spar. Children must be accompanied by an adult while following and completing the trail. 

All proceeds from the Easter Egg Trail will go to Friends of Montgomery School, who are currently raising funds to support the School and its learners, including with IT equipment, food technology equipment and forest school resources.

Friends of School would like to thank individuals and businesses, including the community champions at Tesco Welshpool, Tesco Newtown and Morrisons Newtown, for their kind donations to support this event.
