Jo McHugh led around a dozen ladies in an insightful discovery of our personality types. There were many combinations of ‘types’ which after plotting our answers to numerous questions to different scenarios led us to find out who we intrinsically are! Jo kept us entertained and informed and I’d like to say thank you on behalf of us all. If there is further interest Jo said she will happily do another session later in the year.
Some ladies went to the Observatory visit which was an enjoyable and informative evening despite the Telescope not being in use and a cloudy sky!
🎉 🥂 The Birthday meal was a really lovely occasion, enjoyed by alI (I think!) Nice food, good company and conversation. It was great just to be out enjoying ourselves socially, the last Birthday meal was 2 years ago!
We would like to try and increase the numbers in the walking netball team and they feel there needs to be a recruitment drive to increase the numbers of the Walking Netball group. The last session had to be postponed as there were only 3 usual players, due to unforeseen circumstances. Netball England have appointed a local ambassador for the Nottingham area - Gill Strickland. We have agreed for her to make contact via email so she can introduce our players to other local groups who are in a similar position to us.However, If you feel it is something you could join please talk to Jan or Maureen. It is a great social and fun activity and a great way to get fit.
Don’t forget to have a look on the Denman at home website for information on their courses, we will be drawing the first name this month along with the raffle. There are so many courses and talks to enjoy. The link is: https://www.denman.org.uk/at-home/
