Lockdown Quizzes

There was such an outcry when we said Lockdown Quizzes would end in May that we have decided to restart them in the Autumn, with a new name.

Lockdown quizzes came about by chance when the 2020 Annual Quiz had to be moved online by the organisers, Ann and Andrew. “We did not dream it would be so successful or become a monthly event.” said Ann. “The emphasis was on breaking down social isolation. Only text questions were used, no pictures, so people could join by phone if they weren’t online.”

Talk: Citizens Advice Bureau

We recently had an excellent talk about Citizens Advice Bureau with particular reference to North Herts.

The Citizens Advice North Hertfordshire 'slogan' is: Free support and advice when you need it
Its promise is : Local charity, available to all, offering free confidential help and support

Feature: We are all in this together...... by Claire Bunyan

Get in the driving seat

Most of the web pages for LALG’s 100+ groups are being edited by the web editing team. But more and more groups are taking control themselves. Around a third of groups have a ‘content editor’ from within their group. And we hope more will follow.

The Good Old Days by David Walker

She looked every inch an excited bride-to-be as she collected a wedding form. A couple of days later, the completed form was returned.
What a wedding it would be. The groom was the son of the commanding officer at RAF Bassingbourn, his bride the Letchworth girl who had filled in the form. Innumerable bigwigs were coming: bishops, an air vice-marshal or two, and so on. The camp chaplain was to officiate, and there was to be a very exotic honeymoon.
