LaOB RETIRING LEADERS
The members of this group would like to extend very grateful thanks to Elizabeth Evans and Ruth Evans for all their hard work over the years organising outings and talks, and also encouraging others to do so.
There have been many interesting visits made, sometimes in adverse conditions.
There are still accounts of some of these on our website, on the LaOB page and they make fascinating reading. It is hoped the group will become active again in the future.
New Courses Starting in January
Retro Stretch and Tone will be starting on the 1st of Feb 2019, every 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday morning, between 10 and 11am, in the Catholic Church Hall, lead by Alyson Cadman, an experienced keep fit instructor. This is a fun exercise group for all abilities set to music. A great opportunity after the indulgences of Christmas to help you start the New Year feeling healthier and happier.
Spanish Intermediate Conversation will be starting
on 8th January 2019, every 2nd and 4th Tuesday morning 10-11.30am,
led by Tamsin Candeland. It is not for beginners. A great opportunity
to progress your language skills with Tamsin's help. The focus of
the group will be news items, magazine articles and short stories.
On line sign up is available for these 2 groups but space is limited so sign up today.
