“Escape from a Room”
There were ten of us ready to decipher codes and various clues at Cryptology, we did however become a bit nervous as we climbed the staircase which had chains and bludgeons etc. on the wall!
We split into two groups, one The Crypt the other Cypherdyne for 60mins intense pressure trying to beat the clock and complete the tasks, can it be done? Mm why don’t you try it?
It was great fun and we would go again. They are moving to a new bigger venue in Nottingham in February with fresh ideas.
Fat Friends at Theatre Royal UPPER CIRCLE ONLY on Saturday 31st March at 2pm. Tickets £39.50.
Summer Holiday at Derby Guildhall Theatre on Saturday 14th April at 2.30pm. Tickets £12.00.
In January, we revisited Wellow, this time to walk north east of the village on a mixture of farm tracks, woodland, fields plus a little distance on a linking road. The song repeatedly sung was ‘mud, mud, glorious mud’, conditions not being helped at all by rain, sometimes very heavy. Ploughing had also taken place a day or two previously and then on the most distant field we caught up with the farmer busy turning that field over. He saw our plight and kindly created an improvised track for us with his large wheels. Big congratulations and thanks to all of the 27 walkers brave enough to take part!
Our reward was a belated ‘Christmas lunch’ at The Olde Red Lion, very efficiently served and most welcome. Thanks to Paul and Steph Haigh for organising the whole day.
Our next walk will be to Warsop, on Monday February 19th
We made a great start to our Fun with Languages group for 2018 with most of the original members present and we welcomed three new ones too. We began with the first of three sessions on Italian. We learnt how to meet and greet each other and introduce ourselves.
We viewed the relevant clips from the internet, even though the computer did its usual ‘playing up’ scenario. And we went on to learn some basic numbers and complete, or almost complete, a challenging number wordsearch.
We all enjoyed the session and look forward to the next one on Hotels and Directions on Thursday 8th Feb. at 10.30 in the Byron Suite at JGC. See you there! Please remember your £5.00 subs please this month. Thank you.
