News and notices


Since the August Newsletter came out, there have been a number of updates.

Yoga. This group awaits a designated Coordinator and (also) a Leader who can support the teaching. The information presented in the July 2018 Newsletter is now out of date. Sadly Clive Boothman has had to step out of his role due to personal circumstances. Jenny Harrison has written by email to all the previous members on the list he provided. She is collating a list of all those expressing interest in carrying on with this group. At the Open Morning, September 5th, Jane Willis (Tai Chi) has kindly offered to collect names and contact details from those who wish to join the group. As soon as there is a designated coordinator and a viable number of members, this group can hopefully continue.

Jive. The new coordinator for the Autumn term is David Beare. A venue now needs booking and dates of the sessions confirming.

Possible New Interest Group.

Digital Photography. Interest in a possible new group is being sought. Please contact Chris Shearin (Tuesday Walkers) for further information. A flier and a request for names and contact details from those who are interested will be available on the Help Desk on the Open Morning, September 5th.
