Okines Community House Term 1, 2021
After the tumultuous events of 2020 created by the Covid pandemic, Okines is looking forward to a new year packed full of exciting events and activities for the community to enjoy. Please be mindful when attending activities at Okines that our Covid-19 guidelines are still in place and of course if you are showing any signs of flu like symptoms such as a fever, coughing, or shortness of breath please stay at home.
Our Food for Thought monthly speaker & dinner evenings are back with Iain and Kate Field from Leap Farm and Tongola Cheese on Friday 5th March 2021. The topic of discussion will be “Ethical meat growing and consumption – How do we eat meat well?” We encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment as this event is extremely popular.
We also have some great cooking sessions coming up, with a 2 day sourdough breadmaking workshop and a series of cooking classes that celebrates the cultural diversity of our community. For something a bit different, John Robinson from Moving Creature Studio is providing a series of printmaking classes for both adults and children including screen printing, lino cutting and drypoint prints with a view to also adding Japanese Book Binding.
Soirees in the garden are back on, don’t miss the upcoming February 20th event from 5.30pm to 7.30pm followed by the Film “Sexy Beast” MA15+ hosted by the Dodges Ferry Film Society. You won’t want to miss the annual Jazz by the Sea Concert Event featuring the Clarence City Big Band Sunday 28 February 2021 at Lagoon Park Okines from 4pm to 6pm.
We would like to remind people that if you have booked into any of Okines activities and you are unable to attend please let us know – we have waiting lists and there will be someone able to take your place.
