Welcome to 2009, with us.

And so we begin a New Year, with something new to do.

St Luke’s in the High St has been going in its current incarnation since September 2007, when the Farmer’s Market began in the High St. You can read what we’re about in the ‘About’ bit of this site.

We’ve decided to try to be better communicators about how we’re developing, what we’re learning, and what we’re doing in a practical sense. Hence, this blog. The big idea is to add weekly content that encourages some interaction with our friends, associates, and fellow travellers.

The picture on the Header of the site shows the Farmers’ Market, and you can see our stall in the foreground on the right – the green one. Come and visit, say hello, have a yarn. We do proper fair trade coffee, supplied by our friends at Ethical Addictions, and have very good home-made cakes that we sell by the slice.

We’re not an exclusive outfit, and always welcome volunteers to help with the various aspects of running the stall. In fact, we need help. And we’re having a Volunteers’ Training Day on Saturday 7 February, from 9.30am-12.30pm, in the old St Luke’s building on Greenleaf Road, E17, where you’ll learn by experience these kinds of things:

  • The ethos of St. Luke’s, and the history of the Stall
  • The practicalities of setting the Stall up, and packing it down
  • What’s involved in volunteering on the Stall, and how we make it happen on the day

We’d love to see you there, so don’t be shy.

So, thanks for looking in. Over the next few months we’ll get the hang of doing this, and the site will begin to get more interesting – especially if you interact with us.

Happy New Year to you, and we wish you every blessing in it.

    Not sure if I am a friend, associate or fellow traveller, so I’m going to be all three!

    Think this blog is a great idea – it will be good if you can post reflections from a variety of people connected with St Luke’s.

    I look forward to continuing the journey with you all in 2009.
