BIRDS AND BOTANY

The visit to Tittesworth Water concludes our 2017 series of adventures. We have been extremely fortunate in our choice of dry days this year meaning none were cancelled because of our variable climate.

We are now starting to plan our schedule for 2018 and it will appear on our web page in February with our walks starting in March.

jw

Our thanks to all the people who have attended this year's Birds and Botany for sharing their knowledge of the plants and animals we have seen and for your good company.

We are always happy to welcome new members. None of us claim to be experts but try to puzzle our way to the names of the organisms we find. If you are interested in joining us or want more information please contact us.

Fred and Dave.

THEATRE MATINEE - 2018 BOOKING

The programme for the Royal Exchange this autumn/winter is very much towards new plays which may not appeal to many of our members who usually attend and this is coupled with the fact that the theatre has considerably increased its prices. Possibly because of a reduction in grants. Therefore, I have only booked one production so far which is:

Guys and Dolls
25 January 2018 @ 2.30 pm

In this new production, Frank Loesser's timeless musical has been relocated to Harlem during its renaissance and celebrates the vivacity of that era in black America.

1066 and all that ...

If you would be interested in leading/joining a HISTORY group look no further!

At the present time we do not have a leader/facilitator to start a new group but we are hoping that if enough people show interest we could get this group up and running. Please send your name/contact details to the Groups Coordinator groupscoordinator@newmillsu3a.org.uk
