Weekenders

The Weekenders May Newsletter will be sent out on 1st June. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde & Lindsay Smith for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on their morning walks.

We met up for coffee at Brooke Farm, Linby on Friday, 6th May when there was a big discussion on the state of the NHS at the moment!

Our Coffee Club session last month was on the last Friday of the month (April 29th) at Papplewick Village Hall, when we discussed plans for the next couple of months’ activities. We also brought items which brought memories back for us to re-tell to members.

Future Coffee Club sessions will go back to the last Saturday of the month at my house (on 28th May) reverting back to pre-Covid times.

We met up for lunch at Keycraft Garden Centre on Friday, 13th and also had an outing on 24th May to Jacksdale Garden Centre. We plan a Jubilee Afternoon Tea at Morton’s Farm on 4th June. It would be nice to get back to having our Social Evenings in members’ homes but no volunteers so far! Would anyone like to host a Garden Meet up instead?

The Weekenders February Newsletter will be sent out on 1st February. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde and Lindsay Smith for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on their morning walks.

We had to cancel the Broomhill Birthday lunch for myself and Doreen Newton due to increased Omicrom activity, along with any Weekenders activity in January. But we will have a Broomhill Birthday Lunch for Christine Wheatley on Friday, 11th February at 12 noon and a Coffee Club session on Saturday, 26th February at 11.30 am at The Nabb Inn (instead of at my house) when hopefully we can plan events for the next three months at least.

The Weekenders January Newsletter will be sent out on 1st January. Once again, many thanks to Margaret Whilde & Lindsay Smith for printing off copies for those members not on email and for delivering them on their morning walks.

We had a Broomhill Birthday lunch for Ruth Houldsworth on the 10th December, which was also our Christmas lunch. Again, an excellent lunch but a bit on the large side!

Eight of us also met up for Coffee Club Lunch on 18th December at the Nabb Inn.

Please note I have cancelled all Weekender events for the month of January. Hopefully we hope the increased Covid activity will soon be eased so that we can meet more socially “in house”. Meanwhile let us hope the new year will bring us better news.
