Hallo and welcome to our first Newsletter of 2020. I hope you all had a good Christmas and January. We have had a busy start at the Community Centre, with a lot of coach trips arranged and now all available to book on to in the office or by phoning 02392 467562.
Because it is a leap year here are some facts about February that I hope you will find interesting:
EXCURSIONS All excursions, as detailed in the attachment to this Newsletter, are now open for booking. Please also check the Notice Boards.
All excursions can be viewed in more detail in the coach trip book in reception, the first 3 Excursions are as follows:-
Wednesday 4th March 9 to 5 Tuesday 14th April Riverdance
Wednesday 22nd April Marwell Zoo
Roses are red, violets are blue
That’s what they say, but it just isn’t true!
Roses are red and apples are too
But violets are violet, violets aren’t blue!
An orange is orange, but Greenland’s not green
And pinkies aren’t pink, what does it mean?
To say something’s blue when it isn’t, defiles it
But oh, what the heck, it’s hard to rhyme violet!
TABLE TOP SALE On Saturday 29th February from 2 to 4pm it’s the Table Top Sale and of course the best Tombola on the Island! We are still in need of some tombola prizes so if you could please search out all your unwanted Christmas presents, donations are gratefully received! All the tables are now booked, so if you were unable to get a table, please come along and support the Community Centre and stall holders. 50p entry, free for children.
Valentine’s Day on the 14th so I am hoping for a card from my husband!
Roger, who was 19 years old, was buying an expensive bracelet, to surprise his girlfriend on Valentine's Day, at a very smart jeweller's shop in Hatton Garden, London. The jeweller inquired, 'Would you like your girlfriend's name engraved on it?' Roger thought for a moment, grinned, then answered, 'No, instead engrave "To my one and only love".' The jeweller smiled and said, 'Yes, sir; how very romantic of you.' Roger retorted with a glint in his eye, 'Not exactly romantic, but very practical. This way, if we break up, I can use it again.'
The Quiz this month is all about Shakespeare. The closing date is Thursday 27th February – Good Luck!
