New Venue

As the halls at Wells and Hindringham are due to remain closed for sometime we are now moving to a new venue – Warham Reading Rooms.  I will be running two classes on a Tuesday morning but, if numbers dictate, can easily add another class.  The new classes will be at 9.30 am and 10.40 am for one hour – cost £6.00.

Coronavirus and classes

Unfortunately and with sadness I am writing to say that all my classes will be closed until further notice.  Keep moving at home, put on some music and dance around the lounge, juggle toilet rolls whatever keeps you active and your heart beating a little faster.

Take care and see you all once we are out the other side.

Charity Fundraising

We ended our British Heart Foundation Charity fundraising on a total of £1,216.23 – thank you to everybody who donated money or prizes for our raffle (that raised £148).

To date, since 2011, we have raised £10,568.17 for a variety of charities so well done everybody.  Keep the money rolling in 2020!

Shardlake Walking Tour

We are gathering at 10.30 am on Friday, 13th September at the bottom of the ramp/path leading to Norwich Castle to take part in a two hour walk around the sites of CJ Sansom’s book Tombland. This is not an organised tour it is just me reading from a downloaded script so be prepared!

We start at the castle, take in many of Norwich’s well known buildings and we end up at Kett’s Heights.  The walk can be continued along the river but that is your choice after we disperse.

Anyone can come along – partners, wives, husbands, friends – but sorry no dogs as some areas might not be canine friendly.

Look forward to seeing you on Friday if not before in class.

Hindringham Class

Due to the European elections there won’t be a body conditioning class at Hindringham on Thursday, 23rd May as the hall is being used as a polling station.  However, due to the Zumba teacher having a holiday I can offer the aerobics class on Friday, 24th May at 9.30 am instead.

Norwich Theatre Royal

A good time was had by all 22 who attended the behind the scenes tour of the Theatre Royal in Norwich.  We saw the set of The Bodyguard, spoke to the Wardrobe Mistress, took a look at costumes and went underneath the stage to see the trap door, lighting etc.  This was followed by either an excellent two course lunch or cream tea – we had the choice.

If anybody is interested in theatre this is a very worthwhile tour and very good value; the tour alone only cost £5.00!

Our next trip to Norwich will be in August when we will walk in the footsteps of CJ Sansom’s hero, Shardlake, basing our walk on the latest book, Tombland.
