Table Tennis Group

Dusting off skills almost learned by members several decades ago, the new table tennis group began in April. With expert coaching for those who can play and even better coaching for the most of us who can’t, the group meets at United Reform Church, off Farleys Lane, 2:30 to 4:30pm every Wednesday (except monthly meeting day). Weapons provided, just bring refreshments.

Flower Arranging Group

Firstly please remember I am a terrified amateur at flower arranging, but I am willing to give it a go with your help.

For February 7th, 2022, 1.30 – 3.30pm please bring:-
A container – (smallish) with some oasis sticking out about 2 inches above the rim.
Spring flowers – I usually buy the pots of spring bulbs and cut the flowers off (hard I know) but then I pop the bulbs in the garden in the hope that Chardonnay the squirrel leaves a few to flower next year).
Some foliage – that will enhance the flowers such as box, privet, cyclamen leaves.
Some moss – if you have it.

Sharp scissors or secateurs
Bag for rubbish
Something to cover the table – I have used a cut up black bag.

At the first meeting we can discuss what we want to get out of the group as I don’t want it to be a group where people just watch. I want people to go away with a creation they are proud of. Transport of creations can be arrange in needed.

Some of the thoughts I have had are:-
a) a trip to Flora Media to have a professional flower arrange show us how it is done.
b) a trip to a cathedral to see a flower festival (C19 willing)

I am sure you will be able to come up with other ideas. Please feel free to contact me, Siobhan, if you need some help with the oasis or anything else on

Walking Netball

This group will start on Wednesday 28th June at Hucknall Leisure Centre.
This is a joint venture with Hucknall Leisure Centre aimed at getting Ladies back into sports.
The sessions will be every Wednesday from this date. You do not have to commit to every Wednesday but you do need to play at least once a month to keep the group viable.
The group will be looking for volunteers to go on the training course to become a coach. So if you are interested, pop along and join the group.
The main thing is to enjoy yourselves.
