​​​​​​WEEKLY BULLETIN



Thank you Thank you Thank you —We would like to thank all the people that came out last Saturday to the Rothwell Bazaar and Luncheon. We hope you found exactly what you were looking for! Such as the homemade baking including amazing deep dish apple pies and other baked goodies, Christmas pudding, various kinds of preserves, crafts, knitting and awesome treasures including books, puzzles, toys, jewellery. The silent auction with one of a kind items was definitely hit. A very special thank you to all who put this amazing event together and also fed workers and guests with a delicious lunch with tea, coffee and dessert!

We would like to thank Metro in Blackburn Hamlet for their annual contribution of generous ingredients towards our Christmas Puddings and the Bulk Barn at Gloucester Centre for their help with ingredients again this year. 

Solar Power Production, October 2017—During October, Rothwell’s solar power cells generated 835.31 KwHs of power. This was substantially down from our September production of 1, 335.56 KwHs but was only slightly below the average production recorded for October 2012-2016 of 860.20 KwHs. Efforts are underway by the Trustees to replace a damaged solar cell on south roof of the church before winter. 

Kitchen—A reminder that no dirty dishes should be left in the sink. We are finding this to be a problem with evening groups. Please rinse out glasses, cups and put them in the dishwasher.
