Metal Ox announces the Spring Festival and welcomes the New Year, online blessings are sent to thousands of families.  At 5 pm (local time) on February 14, 2021, the third day of the first month of the lunar calendar, the Chinese New Year Celebration hosted by the Chinese Association of Southampton (CAS) was simultaneously broadcast live in the zoom and youtube live streaming.  Thousands of viewers at home and abroad watched the show online and enthusiastically praise and leave fantastic messages for the event.

This event was co-hosted by the Southampton University Confucius Institute and supported by the Chinese Students and Scholars Association, Wutan Kungfu School, Portsmouth Chinese Association Dance Group, Liverpool Christian Disciples Church, Chinese Arts Southampton, and Opera soprano Ms. Beibei Wang, as well as Zi De Guqin Studio, Bamboo Flute Bar and Jing Yue Taichi from China.  A huge thank you to the CAS committee and everyone involved for all the hard work, time and effort to successfully create this brilliant display.

There were 26 items in this evening programme, including singing and dancing, musical instruments, opera, poem recitation, dragon and lion dances, Kung Fu, Tai Chi and so on. The show kicked off with a spectacular lion dance performance following by the New Year song which translated into the unique feelings of Spring; the traditional Chinese dance and the passionate Mongolian dance are so elegant and beautiful. The Chinese dragon dance and Chinese Kung Fu are staged in turn; the performances of Chinese traditional musical instruments such as bamboo flute and cucurbit flute are full of energy and showcase the Chinese customs. The melodious Chinese songs express the overseas Chinese homesickness and the yearning for a better life.

The New Year greetings from the members and guests of the CAS were broadcast at the show. They sent their best wishes to thousands of households through the internet. There was also a highlight of this event; each programme was interspersed with a lucky draw. The happy audience was further surprised with the fantastic prizes.

“Chinese Dream, Happy Dream, The Sharing of The Happy Chinese Dream”, the ending song “Chinese Dream” made its debut, pushing the splendid show to a climax. The main theme of this new era song was performed by soprano Wang Beibei with passion. This song is about the aspirations of Chinese sons and daughters working hard to compose a beautiful Chinese dream.

The show ended successfully in a joyous and festive atmosphere.

  2. Sunday 14/2/2021 at 5pm: 南安普敦華人協會 Chinese Association of Southampton

2020年回顧 和 2021年會籍 2020 Review and 2021 Membership

各位親愛的會員,

願大家安好。南安普敦華人協會於 2020年3月4日在聯誼活動中心聚會後,距今已經超過九個月沒有在 聯誼活動中心見面了。雖然期間英國經歷了兩次封城,協會依然盡力看顧我們的會員。過去九個月,協會為會員們送上了重要物資如口罩、手套、食物 等等。我們也錄製了一些關於運動、繪畫、手工和幸福講座的視頻 讓會員們在協會網站上看。同時,協會的‘同一天空下’電臺節目並沒有停止,依然每週一下午六點播出。另外,協會於10月1日舉辦了一次網上中秋節慶祝活動。我們也於12月20日在網上一起慶祝 聖誕節。

由於疫情的緣故,協會的活動深受影響。我們不能在聯誼活動中心進行活動,也不必交租金。另外,協會的委員們都是無薪義工,所以協會的開銷反而減低了。因此,協會委員會 決定 讓擁有2020年會籍的會員 免費享有2021年的會籍。新會員和沒有2020年會籍的舊會員 也只需 為2021年的會籍 付上 10英鎊會費,而不是原本的15英鎊會費。

當疫情過去後我們再回去中心聚會。如有任何最新發展或活動、我們將會在協會網站及群組上通告。如果您需要協會的幫助,請聯繫任何委員會成員,我們將盡最大努力為您提供幫助。

在此祝福大家 新年快樂 身體健康 百毒不侵。

Dear members,

I hope that you all are keeping well. It has been over 9 months since our last gathering at the Drop-in Centre on Wednesday 4th March 2020. Despite the two lockdowns during these 9 months, the Chinese Association of Southampton (CAS) has put on various efforts to cater for the needs of our members. More specifically, we have delivered important materials including facemasks, gloves and foods to our members. We have produced videos on exercise, paintings, crafts and happiness talks, which are available on our website for our members. Our ‘Under the Same Sky’ community radio programme did not stop but has continued to broadcast every Monday at 6pm. Furthermore, we have had our online Mid-Autumn festival event on 1st October 2020. We had  our Christmas celebration event online using Zoom on 20th December 2020.

Due to the pandemic, CAS activities have been significantly affected and reduced since March 2020. However, we do not need to pay for the rent at our Drop-in Centre and CAS committee members are unpaid volunteers. Hence, the expenditure in CAS has also been reduced. For these reasons, the committee has decided that CAS members who have valid membership in 2020, will enjoy a free membership for 2021. All new members or old members who did not have valid membership in 2020, only need to pay £10 instead of the original £15 fee, for attaining the 2021 membership.

When the epidemic is over, we will return to the Drop-in Center for gatherings. If there is any latest development or activity, we will communicate on the Association website and WhatsApp group. Please contact any of the committee members if you require assistance from the Association, we will do our best to help.

Wish you a good health and a Happy New Year.

Chairperson of the Chinese Association of Southampton
