JANUARY TO JULY 2016
We hope you are enjoying the warm winter and long may it continue.During 2015 we enjoyed many interesting events which were well attended and much enjoyed by members. Your committee is now planning the programme for 2016. Many events sell out quickly so for a better chance of booking, come along to coffee mornings, which are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Peace Memorial Hall, starting at 10.30.
Don’t forget we are essentially an activities club so if you’re not already involved in walking, badminton, art, table tennis, etc., do give them a try.. The new Games Afternoon (scrabble, chess, cards, Rummikub, etc) has now moved to a new venue—the Community Room at the new Penkridge Fire Station. (Contact Val Spink for details)
Most of the above activities have spaces available if you wish toparticipate. Please contact the organisers or a member of the
Committee for further information.
Monday: 2nd Monday each month. Tabletop games (Scrabble Chess, Cards, etc) Venue: Penkridge Fire Station.
Tuesday: Table Tennis at Beaconside Leisure Centre, Stafford
Short walks (alternate Tuesdays) approx. 4 miles
Rambles (approximately 5-6 miles)
Art Class 2.30 to 4.30 Haling Dene Centre (no
previous experience necessary)
Thursday: Art Class 10.00 to 12.00 at Haling Dene Centre.
Short Tennis (no previous experience necessary)
and Badminton at Penkridge Leisure Centre.
£2 for 1 hour, £3 for 2 hours.
Ideas for new activities would be very much welcomed—if you have ideas for starting up a new group, please contact the Committee who will do all they can to help you get started so please don’t be shy in coming forward with you ideas.
The making and serving of coffee at our monthly meetings is done by volunteers on a rota basis. Some of the stalwarts on the rota have now been doing this for a long time and need a well-earned rest. So, if some of our newer members would like to join the rota they would be most welcome! Contact Linda Savage – Secretary
