Carnival Capers

So, Carnival made its way to Friends Corner. And, although you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d booked a day trip to the Circus, no one was harmed in the process.

We had fun! Big people, little people and our surroundings were decorated for the event. Our kids costumes ranged from fairies and princesses to storm troopers and lions. We had superheroes and pirates – our sweet Fay was the cutest pirate you ever did see; still wouldn’t mess with her on the high seas, mind.

We don’t often like to give ‘best’ prizes but, we can exclusively reveal that mum of two, Elpida, wins hands down for her costume; something between a chicken, a clown and a 1960s Woodstock reveller. It was so eclectic, no one is still *really* sure what it is.

Anyhoo.. Well done, Elpida! Your prize is infinite coolness in Friends Corner history.

Our Carnival Party had music, food, face-painting, banter and good, good vibes.

As always, people big and small came together and enjoyed each other’s company within the surroundings of this precious place.

Keep your eyes peeled for our next rendezvous; the Friends Corner Easter Party in about a month’s time. Bunnies, bunting and Hot Cross Buns will be the order of the day.

Carnival season closed but Friends Corner’s days have continued to be filled with fun and games.

And, as a new week awaits, our little ones will be hanging out, painting, playing, making, learning and laughing.. While us bigger folk will continue bonding over cups of tea.

I’ll put the kettle on.

Until next time..

Buy the ticket, take the ride..


Happy Spring

Hi, pals!

So, yeah, it’s been a while. Back now with pizzazz..and some news and updates..

While we’ve been spending our days playing, connecting, crafting and a whole lot more, we also decided that it would be an absolutely fantabulous idea to offer all existing and new Full Members 25% off the membership price. I know! Join up and spread the word!


It is a truly amazing offer. If there ever was a great time to join this precious place, it is now. Come along and thrive with us. The memories you will make will last a lifetime. That’s a promise.

Speaking of making memories.. Sunday 6 March will see Friends Corner host its annual Carnival Party. All members, old and new, are invited to come along with a couple of pals (if they so wish).

All you need to do is dress-up (optional, of course, but encouraged – *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*), bring a savoury dish (or two, depending on how many in your party) and be prepared to jump into a pool of fun. Simples.

Before all that, though, we shall continue with our fun themes and good times. Our wish to share this with you stands as always.

So, sprinkle that happy dust, tell your friends, make happy and join us when you can.

Until next time..

Oh, how my heart blooms with Spring..
