Jackie and Dave are organising a lovely pre-Easter weekend on the 13th and 14th April 2019 and kindly invite you to come along and enjoy two days of walking, great food and fun!
‘Canal, Curry and Cider’ is the motto for Saturday, 13th April. Start the day with a bacon butty or a homemade Granola bar before descending upon the Trent and Mersey canal on a roughly 20 mile trek from Colwich to Burton-on-Trent. You can run, walk, cycle, drive or even cruise on the Bear Necessities before enjoying a curry and pint at The National Brewery Centre in Burton. This is a fun weekend with a physical challenge if you want to push yourselves. All we ask is that you make a donation to OSOC in appreciation.
Sunday, 14th April is the Nepali New Year, and Palm Sunday in the UK. The motto for the day will be ‘Cannock Chase, Cakes and Customs’. Have a leisurely few hours exploring the history, nature and customs of this beautiful area. It has an outstanding museum, a stimulating ‘Go Ape’ high ropes course and a wonderful woodland cafe. Finish at Colwich with a homemade Staffordshire Oatcake and a Easter gift!
Jackie says she has enough space in the house and for campers in the garden. There also a few caravan / camping sites close by.
Now, who could resist such a lovely invitation. It’s a great weekend to look forward to! Contact Jackie to book your place and for further details.

Sponsor a Child
Please sponsor a child. £5 per month pays for a child to attend homework club. We ask for a year’s funds so that the student will have the knowledge that they will be a member of the homework club for a full year. In return you will receive messages from your sponsored student. Please bear in mind that English is not their first language. The tutors will help them write their message!
This pays for children from the local government school to allow them to meet their potential. With professional tutors who will assist them in subjects leading up to SLC (School Leaving Certificate normally at age 16), essential if they are to have the opportunity to continue in education. English is key as further education is given in English and government schools teach in Nepali, whereas private schools teach in English.
