REUBEN’S RE­TREAT

Glossop Advertiser - - News - Ni­cola Gra­ham

AN­OTHER su­per busy start to the week at Reuben’s. Be­fore lunchtime on Mon­day we were al­ready in re­ceipt of and thank­ing our sup­port­ers Nina and Michelle at Ash­ton, while at Glos­sop we hosted the fol­low­ing work­force: Eric, from High Peak Cre­ative; Mike, from the Shed in Duk­in­field; Stephen, from Hill Burn drains; Ian, our vol­un­teer; Phil, Mal­colm (Si­mon) and Steve, from SES and Ry­der elec­tri­cal.

A very busy morn­ing be­fore pop­ping by Pico Lounge to share some in­for­ma­tion for their forth­com­ing sup­port of our cause.

Tues­day we host a group as they plant at our en­trance and ex­its. They are from Thomas Cook and will be com­ple­ment­ing the work com­pleted so far by Rob, l of Arun­del Land­scapes, and the won­der­ful crafts­men that are March­ing­ton stone and Etherone stone, David and Rob.

Last week will stay with me for a long time and I won’t ever for­get their kind­ness. If you do get chance, please bob by our Re­treat in Glos­sop and take a look at our lat­est de­liv­ery. You will see that we fi­nally have iden­tity, there is no way of miss­ing it. The guys have car­ried out a fan­tas­tic job and we thank ground­works care of Tesco for their grant to sup­port our beau­ti­ful project of en­trance and exit – more on that to come. Lots more thank yous this week to: Jenny of CMS, Mr and Mrs Lovell, Chads­field med­i­cal prac­tice, Partington The­atre Club in mem­ory of our dear friend David Slack, Mr and Mrs Robin­son, Water­loo School, Glos­sop gar­den­ers club, Pritesh, our on­line donors and the amazing Emma, Sonya, Julie, Steve and Steve for com­plet­ing the Manch­ester Marathon on Sun­day.

Good luck to Danny, from KO Pro­mo­tions, and his brother Austin, from Oz Fit­ness, for their Snow­don climb this week­end.

It was a busy week­end for our on­line web shop last week­end with lots of ticket sales com­ing through for the REUoyal wedding cel­e­bra­tion on May 19. We ar­rived in to work this morn­ing to be greeted by the loveli­est of voice mails from a lady ex­cited to join us. Thanks to Kevin at Cineworld Ash­ton. We are also su­per thrilled to see how our lat­est fundraiser has been re­ceived too, with tick­ets sell­ing fast for our sin­ga­long the Great­est show­man on May 6, it is go­ing to be spec­tac­u­lar.

NOM­I­NA­TIONS are now open for this year’s Pride in Hyde awards.

More than two dozen awards were handed out last year to groups, busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als who made a dif­fer­ence to their com­mu­nity.

Or­gan­is­ers have also launched a new com­pe­ti­tion for 2018, which is for the best photo of Hyde round­about.

The win­ning en­try will fea­ture on this year’s award plates, which are pre­sented to ac­cepted nom­i­nees.

Nom­i­na­tions are open un­til the end of April and cost £10 which goes to­wards the cost of the plate.

They can be handed in at the fol­low­ing shops: l Paper Tulips, An­nette Ste, GD Hair & Beauty, and Hyde Pet Foods.

The pre­sen­ta­tion will take place on Satur­day, May 12, at Cor­po­ra­tion Pop in Hyde and is free for any­one to at­tend.

Or­gan­iser An­drew Richard­son said: “This is an award from the peo­ple to hon­our those who make a dif­fer­ence to the Hyde com­mu­nity.”
