There are changes stirring in the Arc Café; a new vibrancy is spreading out into the Dollis Valley Community and there is an excitement in the air.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we have a new Chef in residence. Paul Stevens has joined us and is running the kitchen at the centre. We are looking forward to tasting his new menu that is being rolled out even as this newsletter is being written. We will be selling hot and cold food, including great breakfasts that will easily keep you going until lunchtime, after which you will be able to return to the Café for a scrumptious hot or cold meal. You want a good cup of coffee? There are plenty of choices and a sandwich, biscuit or cake to go with it. Who can resist? So, come along to the Arc Café and meet the staff and the Chef and share this new experience with us. We look forward to seeing you!
We are excited to report that the Centre has never been so busy with an almost full weekly schedule of courses and clubs. The centre’s regular bookings reflect the Communities diversity and really helps promote the community feel we love. Please see the selection of the various activities in our calendar here to see the extent of work being done at the Rainbow Centre and through Barnet Community Projects.
We are always looking for volunteers at the Rainbow Centre who would be willing to give up some hours of their day/week to come and help out in various ways. If you feel that you would like to contribute some of your time to the Rainbow Centre, please contact using the form at the bottom of this newsletter so that we can share our vision with you. We are a Friendly group with a positive attitude towards change and growth and would love to share that with others.
Every Friday we run a Community Kitchen at the Rainbow Centre. This is what it sounds like! You can come and get an extremely tasty three course meal for just £1.00!! Come along and see what this does to your taste buds – a definite temptation and not to be missed!
Building on Arts Festival
Make a note in your diaries ladies and Gentlemen! The first ever Arts Festival is coming to Dollis Valley! On Saturday 31 May from 10am to 5pm events will be running throughout the day at both The Rainbow Centre and the Valley Pre-School. There are lots of exciting workshops to participate in such as: Screen Printing, Glass Painting, Junk Modelling, Open Mic, T-shirt printing and more. Don’t miss this opportunity to develop your skills and learn a new craft.
This Friday is St Patricks Day, so our Community Kitchen is doing a traditional meal to celebrate. 3 courses including Boiled bacon and mash. Come along and join in the fun and maybe have a dance?
Please let me know if you can make it so we can cater for you. Our Community Kitchen provides a healthy 3 course meal for £1 every Friday at 1pm. The food is prepared by people in the community for the community and is a place where we enjoy being community together. (so basically community!)
What is the Community Kitchen?
It’s pretty much what it sounds like! A weekly event each Friday at the Rainbow Centre where you can come and
eat great food with other people. We only ask for £1 and there are usually 3 courses.
