Dear Common Ground Members,

We hope everyone is enjoying the glorious weather! I think we can truly call this a proper heatwave. Remember to conserve water if you can and be mindful of how you use it.

There’s lots to do at Common Ground and below is our calendar of July events. The loft room is particularly pleasant at the moment and should be a nice place to spend a day at one of our workshops. Hopefully, we’ll see you at a few.

As you know Common Ground is an evolving project and we are learning as we go – it’s an experiment and we want to look at ways in which it can develop towards it’s most successful form. Therefore we will be sending out an important email soon to help us in this process. Please keep an eye on your mailboxes.

Till then…

Love to all

Jay Roche – Common Ground Committee

Beachcomb For Plastic – Saturday 7th, 10 am. Let’s get the plastic off the beach, and away from the sea, so it’s no longer a threat to marine life. Bring a bag (and some gloves, if you wish). We’ll try and coordinate with the council or Greenstar to remove the waste, but be prepared to take home what you find. Bring food to share, while we sit and admire our good work! Meet at the Bray head end of the beach, 10 am.

  • Mondays:

Weekly Singing Group –   Taking a Break for the summer. We are an informal group using natural voice principles the first one being that everyone can sing and we all have the right to. We sing together in harmony in a relaxed and welcoming manner. We sing from cultures all over the world and have set some of our poetry to song.
Our name is Chaos in Harmony so anything is possible 🙂 We have some chaos and many moments of pure delight and deep appreciation of ourselves and each other. Singing is time out, spent with others making beautiful sounds together with little or no judgment imposed or necessary. https://www.facebook.com/chaosinharmonybray/
