October quiz night

At the beginning of October we held another quiz night, again with questions kindly provided by Richard Woodward, and again a well-attended event. My favourite thought-provoking round was the “film in five minutes” where you needed to identify a film from a sequence of mini pictures telling the story.

Beetle Drive

In May we held a Beetle Drive which proved to be great fun.

As always there was a lot of enthusiasm and laughter. Play was fast and furious and everyone experienced both winning and losing. In the end there were very few points between the top three scorers.

We also had a lovely hot supper of lemon chicken, ratatouille and baked potato, followed by a selection of deserts.


Christmas Monthly General Meeting

Our Christmas celebrations had been planned for Tuesday 12 December. Unfortunately severe winter weather intervened and the committee were left with no option but to cancel at short notice and arrange refunds for all members who had bought tickets. These will be available at the January meeting.


New Members’ Get Together

On Monday 17th July we held a social event to introduce new members to the organisation, to group leaders and committee members, and to each other.  We began with a light-hearted game to encourage everyone to circulate and talk to people. Several of the group leaders spoke briefly about their groups. Of course, there was tea and coffee and cake.  It was an opportunity to talk face to face with people and quite a few members left thinking they might try a group they hadn’t considered before.

All the new members were invited and those who were not able to attend are warmly invited to come to the next new members get-together, which will be held on Thursday 4 January 2018.
