Grumpy Old Men visit Nottingham Justice Centre

A large group of Grumpy Old Men, and several Not-so-Grumpies, felt the long arm of the law recently, when they visited Nottingham Justice Centre. This is the Magistrates courts complex next to the Canal, which also includes Family courts and Tribunal cases.

Everyone managed to get through security, then we listened to a very interesting introduction from the two magistrates who hosted our visit. This included an outline of the very wide-ranging caseload of the courts, and the training needed to become a Justic of the Peace.

We then observed, in two groups, cases being heard in two courts where proceedings were in progress, one of them being in front of a District Judge, the other with Magistrates. We then had an opportunity to discuss what we had heard with the two magistrates, and to compare notes on how we would have dealt with the cases.

We all agreed that this had been an engrossing visit, and we followed it up with lunch just round the corner at the Vat & Fiddle pub.

Note for our Groups: the magistrates are willing to host further groups in the future.

The Group met for lunch at Squares in Nottingham and carried on to play two sessions of ten-pin bowling. The food was great, the bowling for most was ‘so-so.’ We may have been grumpy to start but by the end of the afternoon our demeanor was slightly improved. Nothing to do with the beer of course. Terry Hill is looking at an event for May and will communicate this a.s.a.p. The number in the group has been increased from nine to fourteen to hopefully have a regular turn out of ten grumpy old men.

Grumpy Old Men

This is for like-minded members who enjoy sport, dining, days out with a male theme. The Group will be a bit along the same line as the Pot Luck Group which has been going for almost 6 years, the only difference will be that the meeting dates will vary depending on the choice of activity.
The membership of the Group will also be limited due to the venues and activities.
If you are interested in going on a reserve list please complete the form below.
