16.12.2020 Christmas At The Marae 2020

Are you receiving? Just a little concerned that our emails are not getting through to everyone. Have changed the perhaps confusing sender from: CCM Trustees to: Cambridge Community Marae. Check out your spam folder for last week’s email if you haven’t seen it.
Kind regards

UPDATE TUESDAY 15.12.2020 ( 🙂 everyone is getting this email)

Our initial volunteers meeting for 2020 was held yesterday evening (14.12.2020) at the marae. If you were unable to attend would you kindly hit reply and acknowledge you have received this email. Please confirm, also, numbers attending and / or helping. Our plans for Christmas Day are well in hand. We have a kitchen manager and a clear path for when and where people prepared to help can slot in. Menu development is well in hand. We have received significant community donations for the event.

We may need one or two folk to run errands, pick up & drop off provisions during the setup on Christmas Eve and we may have the need for a driver for errands / people pick up / drop offs again on Christmas Day. Helping is flexible and as you are able. We look forward to being with you on Christmas Day. Help is very much appreciated:
