February Newsletter

Dear Members & Supporters

As February draws to a close, we take a moment to reflect on the happenings within Community Enterprise PL12 and the vibrant Saltash community. It's been a month filled with transitions, successes, and the unwavering support of our dedicated volunteers and patrons.

Hopper - End of an Era:

At the end of February, we bid farewell to the Hopper Transport at CEPL12. Thirteen years ago, this project was initiated with the noble vision of enhancing accessibility and community connectivity for Saltash residents. As we reflect with pride and gratitude, we acknowledge the success of the Hopper over the years. However, with the flourishing Red Bus operation and other transport providers now serving the community, we recognise that the original mission of the Hopper has been fulfilled. As CEPL12 bids adieu to the Hopper, our focus remains on seeking new opportunities to serve the community and embracing fresh initiatives that address evolving needs.


The Community Kitchen - On Course SW Success:

What a fantastic month of cooking it has been at The Community Kitchen! Course number 2 of On Course SW saw tremendous success with overwhelming participation and satisfied customers. Lots of faces old and new and lots of fun too! The versatility of this space continues to amaze us, accommodating everything from yoga sessions to cooking classes, and even theatre shows and Father Christmas's Grotto! We eagerly anticipate another On Course SW cooking course beginning in March.

CEPL12 at Lush in Plymouth:

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who participated in organising, publicising, and staffing our stand at LUSH in Drakes Circus, Plymouth, this month. Over three days, our team raised awareness of CEPL12 and promoted sales of special LUSH Charity Pots, with 100% of profits benefiting our organisation. Together, we raised £328, thanks to the generosity of our volunteers and customers. We extend our gratitude to LUSH for their support and to everyone who contributed to this successful event.

Dementia Voice Choir at the Library:

The Dementia Voice singing group had a fantastic morning at Saltash Library as part of Saltash Library's Wellness month. Our talented choir spread joy through music, thanks to the support of Saltash Town Council Library Hub and all who participated. Here's to many more uplifting moments together!

We're excited to continue offering fun activities and welcoming faces in our new location. A heartfelt thank you to Ashtorre Rock for their unwavering support as our previous hosts.
