In the Spotlight- Tennis & Short Tennis – May 2019

Tennis & Short Tennis

Wimbledon will soon be with us, so if you need the practice to bring you up to scratch or would just like a more down to earth game, join us on Friday mornings at 10.00am at Lea Hall Tennis courts. You’ll receive a friendly welcome; rackets can be provided.

Alternatively, if you prefer a gentler game with softer balls, then our Indoor Tennis group will welcome you at the leisure   Centre, Burnthill Lane, also on Friday’s at 10.am. Racquets are provided. Proper footwear is essential at both venues, i.e. Trainers or pumps, (do they still make them or am I showing my age).

Theatre Update- May 2019

After initially ordering 26 seats for The King and I matinee performance, at the newly refurbished Alex in Birmingham on December 11th 2019, this has now been increased to 42 seats and they are sold. This is the West End sell-out show which is coming for the Christmas season. The very special price for tickets and coach is just £45. We can put your name on a waiting list, as people’s circumstances can change and the show is still a long way off.—

We have provisionally booked seats for Les Misérables at the Hippodrome NEXT year on July 2nd (matinee). The cost will be £65, including coach travel. We have to pay by the end of July this year to secure our seats.
Please let us know as soon as possible if we are going to be able to run this trip.

Chat from Me – May 2019

Stuck for what to write I  looked back at last year’s May newsletter and was grateful for a drop of rain to give me a break from watering the garden, not so this year at the moment it’s dark and pouring down.

Lydia and friends went down well at coffee morning with the raffle run once again by the line dancers ( as so many generous members donated prizes there was enough to run 2), they raised £70, this time it was donated to First Responders.

We have a guest speaker who is a retired JP at the Mays coffee morning.

Don’t forget this will be the last day for your entries for the photography competition. Other dates for your diary include the Music quiz at Sheepfair, organised by Mike Paige on the 1st of June, tickets available at coffee morning. Art exhibition 16th June also at Sheepfair and a trip to Llandudno in August—
