What we do

Members meet in a small group to enjoy playing Scrabble.


August 2019

Next Meetings: 10, 24 September; 8,22 October; 5, 19; November; 3, 17 December.

Our friendly meetings involve 2 or 3 Scrabble games with a break for tea and chat. We try to improve our word scores and widen our vocabulary at each session.

Sadly, Shirley Alker a founder member of our group, died recently. We will miss her stories and her zest for life.

May 2019

Next Meetings -  2, 16, 30 April; 14, 28 May; 11, 25 June; 9, 23 July
No sessions in August.

In January, we congratulated Jean Barnes, our group's overall winner for 2018, for having had the most overall session wins for the year. Each session we add up our total games scores and record the session winner. All our our group are keen to score well and hope that each game score is better than the last one. We are all making the most of triple word and letter scores and the challenge for 2019 is to score more 7 letter words and get the bonus score of an extra 50 points.

November 2018

Next Meetings -  8, 22 Jan;  5, 19 Feb;  5, 19 March;  2, April

Our group continues to enjoy our Scrabble sessions especially when we score well and even manage a few 7 letter words. We were sorry to say goodbye to one of our group in the summer. She decided to retire from Scrabble, having been a member for nearly 20 years, and who has enjoyed the challenge of Scrabble and the friendship of our Tuesday sessions. We welcomed a new member to our group in September who will help to keep us on our toes!
