Used Wrapper Collection – Rumbletums

Cycle Group Crisp packets, crinkly biscuit and cake wrapper collection

Many thanks to all members who bought their used wrappers to the monthly meeting in March. They are being collected by the Rumbletums cafe in Kimberley to be recycled by a company called Terracycle.

Rumbletums provides worthwhile work opportunities and training for people with learning and related difficulties. It is one of our top two favourite cafe stops and they need to raise additional funding to avoid foreclosure of their current lease.

The photograph shows Val and Irene passing over two bin liners of used packaging on March 20th during our coffee stop. There will be another collection at the April monthly meeting. Basically, eat loads of crisps, biscuits and cakes and put your empties in the box near the signing in desk on April 10th!

Mid-Length Walking Group

The March walk from Hayton, managed to find a day where the wind had finally dropped to reasonable levels and 23 of us set off to discover the high ground in North Nottinghamshire. Most agreed this was not an area they were familiar with. After an initial climb in the sun, we were rewarded with great views across Nottinghamshire, including a distant view of Lincoln Cathedral and two power stations. After a stop for a drink, we continued on, following the Trent Valley way for a short distance, before heading through Clayworth and onto the Chesterfield canal towpath. The group slowed to look at all the Canal Boats, with well over 20 moored on this stretch, before walking on for lunch, and then back to the pub.

Special thanks go to the landlady of the Boat Inn at Hayton, who, even though they are closed on Monday as a rule, opened up for toilets before we set off and again for drinks, and food for four of our group, on our return.

This was a great walk, led by Steve and Anne Lawrence.

Our next walk is from Car Colston – on Monday, April 15th, 2019

Fun with Languages

We did indeed have fun and games at our last meeting, but not the sort we really wanted! This was due in the end to a computer update blocking the online videos we were using. Thanks to everyone for their patient understanding. We did manage to complete a vocabulary sheet on hotels and bookings, also a crossword and had lots of hilarity (genuine this time) in our group conversations.

The tapas meal will take place at Bar Erico on Wednesday 10th April at 7.0pm. We are sorry there are some who cannot make that date and hope more can make the next meal.

Our next meeting, and our last for this session in Spanish, will be at John Godber Centre on Thursday, 11th April at 10.30 – 12 noon. We hope to consider Health matters then.

The May meeting will begin four sessions of Italian. We look forward to seeing you all. New members welcome – see the board to sign up please.
