Maths 4 Fun Christmas Games

Twelve of our group had a great time today with the maths of family games, honing our logic and spatial awareness skills ready for Christmas.

We tried Mobi, Blokus, Bedlam, Tantrix, and some old favourites like 3D noughts and crosses, Chinese Chequers and Connect 4. This is maths but not as you know it!

We will have a break in January and will meet again on Wednesday 6th February 2.30-4.30 at Kensington House. Why not come and join us?

Sunday strollers @ L20

Sunday saw us on packed train to Moorfields station. A slow meander out of town to the canal locks and footpath where we strolled to Millers Bridge and L20 restaurant.

The reception was excellent and all the staff did their best to make us most welcome. Coats taken, we were seated with drinks and presented with two and three course menus, a small but perfectly balanced choice for a cold Winters day.

With a light airy venue, plenty of room, great staff and little pressure to finish, it turned out to be a great experience at a very reasonable cost (£14.00 for 3 courses).

L20 restaurant is a credit to the college!

Line dancing
No line dancing again this week . Unfortunately Hilary is still unwell

Christmas Concert 11 December 9.45 for 10 am
Programes for the Christmas concert are available today from the book table. There is no charge. Leaving donations will be invited on the day for Woodlands Hospice.

Our Christmas break
The Christmas Concert above on 11 December will be our last ‘normal’ coffee morning. The following week some leaders will be present at MBC to collect holiday monies but our ‘usual’ tea and coffee will not be available and there will not be any announcements. Our ‘normal’ coffee morning will resume on 8th January 2019.

2019/20 membership renewals and fee
Finally, the membership team have started getting ready to carry out the membership renewals process for next year. Committee met last week and decided, given we still have reserves above the recommended 6 months running cost figure, that we would set (maintain) the membership fee at £6 for the 19/20 year. The fee will be considered again prior to 20/21 renewals – it is anticipated that it will most likely need to increase at that point.
