LALG's 35th Anniversary


 The LALG will be celebrating its 35th anniversary on Saturday 11 June.

We want this to be a fun event where we can all enjoy ourselves, especially after the challenges of the last couple of years.

The committee will be organising two major activities to bring people into the town and there will be a stall selling LALG membership and illustrating the range of activities we undertake. But we hope individual groups will also get involved to showcase the variety of groups we encompass.
For example we could:

  • Have a demonstration stall where groups can put their activities on display: cake baking, cocktail mixing, flower arranging all come to mind.
  • Hire an indoor space and play a variety of card games during the day, inviting new people to join in.
  • Organise a walking day so that our various groups can tackle a distance they feel comfortable with but get together at the end.
  • Run a book swap – or a plant swap.
  • Play old fashioned non-electronic games such as shove halfpenny, coconut shy. We can hire the games but we would need people to be in charge on the day.
  • Have a crossword trail around the town, visiting our discount suppliers for clues.
  • And of course, a cake cutting when we can all get together and raise a toast

Emma Rowe who you will have seen from last month’s newsletter has recently joined us is chief organiser with
help from the committee, but it can only happen if people are willing to participate by helping to run some of the events. Or do preparatory work such as sewing bunting.
We think LALG is a good news story for the town and we would like to share that and build our membership so we can continue for another 35 years!

There will be other events to mark the anniversary of course, our annual ‘in person’ quiz returns in April. We are organising a trip to Heartwood Forest on Wednesday 4th May to view the bluebells in its ancient woodland.
And there will be other events throughout the year – look out for them!
