Cropwell Bishop co-op staff make pizzas at CKOB October 10th 2014

Cropwell Bishop Youth Club – Pizza night with the Co-op October 10th 2014


At the Old School on October 10th, Guyle and Sanjay from Cropwell Bishop Co-op came to our village Youth Club, CKOB, to make pizzas with our members. All the ingredients were very kindly donated by the Co-op and the members really enjoyed getting stuck in! It was really good fun to have this visit and support from our local shop and both Guyle and Sanjay would have to admit that they enjoyed it too! We have even had an offer of volunteering in the future!

Thanks from all of us at CKOB to Guyle and Sanjay, and to the Co-op for their kind support.

Cropwell Bishop CKOB Nottingham Playhouse Panto trip

Those of you who came last year will remember what a great night we had on our group trip to the panto at the Playhouse. I am hoping to organise a similar bus trip, where we benefit greatly from reduced admission prices for our members and their families, to see this years production of Sleeping Beauty. Details to follow shortly.......

Cropwell Bishop CKOB - Revised date

Please be advised of a change of date for the next CKOB session. Our September 5th evening has been moved to September 12th due to the Old School being needed to set up for the horticultural show. This will also be the night when we invite our next group of potential members, ie. those children moving into year 6 at primary school. Existing members are welcome to attend  as normal to show them the ropes!
