Dear Members, Friends,
The New Year is already in its third month and it seems like only yesterday that we were having our Christmas Fair in Waterlooville and that’s over three months ago.
This Year is a big year for us: This year is our Twentieth Anniversary since the foundation of the Maltese Culture Movement back in 1998. For this we intend to hold a special celebration with a concert commemorating the twenty years of achievements within the Maltese Community in the UK. We are aiming to hold this event on Saturday 9th June and shall announce full details as soon as possible as we are still working on the programme.
Over these last 20 years we have held over 120 functions, participated in other functions held by the Malta High Commission, extended the Maltese community from a small church congregation to a nationwide community, enrolled many new members and sadly lost many other members and dear friends. We hope that throughout this time we made a difference in keeping you connected with our mother country Malta and Gozo. Now we invite you to come and contribute with your presence and especially those of you who attended any of our past functions to come forward with feedback so we can make this event more personal as well as communal.
Pre-Easter Celebration, Saturday 24th March 2018 in Waterlooville: This will be our first activity of the year. We usually hold this function in April around the Movement’s anniversary. But with Easter again coming early this year we decided to repeat what we did in previous years and hold a pre-Easter Celebration instead of our usual anniversary celebration in April.
The Maltese Fair will open at 12.00 noon. Here as usual we will have all your favourite food and drink, such as Pastizzi, Ravioli, Kinnie, Cisk lager and including some Easter specialities such as Figolli and Kwarizimal (lent sweet). Alongside the fair we will be running a Maltese kitchen and a licensed bar. There will also be a Bouncy Castle (weather permitting) for the children. This will be an opportunity to come and join us celebrate; bring your family and friends and meet other Maltese people. Entrance is free. Everyone is welcome! Please see enclosed flyer for further details and location.
