Wednesday 19 September, 10.30am Broadway Gallery, The Arcade, Letchworth We will discuss productions and explore small experimental groups as well as the more established ones. Also we will visit in a small group locally and further afield, including London and Cambridge live theatre.

We have enough interest to start but can still take more members.

We hope to include a Winter walk on one of the following dates:
Friday 10 January (Wolf Moon), Sunday 9 February (Snow Moon) Monday 9 March (Worm Moon)

The three sessions of Country Dancing in October and November with Mandy Baldwin were very popular, and we are hoping to make this a regular monthly activity in the new year.

I will be contacting all those who have previously expressed an interest in other forms of dancing to try to work out the best way to get a regular group going. Please email Val if you would like to be included in the discussion group.

The meeting times are arranged, and mutually agreed, within a ‘LALG Cue Ball’ Whats App contact group. If you would like to be part of this group send Steve your mobile phone number. You will be invited into the group by the group administrator. This method of communication allows greater flexibility on arranging dates for matches.

If you are interested in joining this group a meeting has been organised on Tuesday 10 December, 4pm at Dimples Café(Letchworth Par 3 Golf Centre, Willian Way).
