Heritage Walk - May 2017

Four teams took part in the Hertage Walk. Although it was, the cold wind suggested otherwise!
After answering questions and following the map, the teams made their way to the Banner Cross pub for a drink...a hot drink and a fire would have been welcome at this point!
Judith is deep in thought contemplating the tie break quesion that all teams were asked to complete prior to marking.


Congratulations to the winning team, Team JSJ, with a very impressive 28.5 out of 30






April Meeting - The Hat Stand

Don't forget you can see the team again at the The Pop-Up Shop, Winter Gardens on 1st to 29th June.




Salsa & Tapas Night

We had a great night learning to salsa at Revolucion de Cuba with Ivan Rodrigo Garcia. 2-4-1 cocktails before certainly helped to warm us up! By the end of the evening we could all mambo-ish!

March Meeting - Howard Middleton from Bake Off!


We had an excellent talk from Howard Middleton about his 'bake off' experiences and life since then. There were a few nerves as he sampled the March members' cakes but he was very complimentary!
