April: The Saturday Group continues to meet fortnightly in
Marple and is progressing well with visitors from the Tuesday Group
joining in occasionally for an extra session.
The Tuesday Group is now comfortably established in its new home at
Marple SCA Hall, where we have our own room and lockable storage
facilities. We now have the capacity to welcome new members to
this group and have recently had three new people join. Some of
the Saturday Group also join in for an extra session
occasionally. This is encouraged as the groups were set up so as
to enable movement between them. We still meet fortnightly and
anyone interested in joining should speak to me to get their name on
the list for the next introductory meeting which I will arrange as soon
as there is sufficient demand.
On Wednesday 18th March
members of both groups went on a visit to Chinatown. We explored
the Chinese Arts and Crafts Shop and then spent some time in a Chinese
Supermarket before enjoying an all you can eat buffet lunch. We
rounded off the day with a visit to Manchester Art Gallery which proved
the most popular of the alternatives on offer. We hope to repeat
this trip in the future as the feedback from those who went has been
very positive and to give a second chance to those who didn't make it
January: The Mah-Jongg Group Christmas Party was held on 20th
December when the
Tuesday Group and the Saturday Group came together for the first time
to play in a competition which was won by Meg Humphries. Thanks to
Debbie for hosting the event and to everyone who brought contributions
to the buffet.
The first meeting of the New Year for the Saturday Group is on 3rd.
January. The Tuesday Group is currently looking for a new venue.
Anyone interested in more information about the group
can contact me by phone.
