Meetings have been arranged up to Christmas and membership has closed for this session
as we now have 80 members. There is a waiting list and there may be a further session
We welcome new members to the Keep Fit group. This takes place at the Jennyfield
Styan Centre on Tuesday afternoons. It starts at 2pm and lasts an hour. The group
is taken by a professional instructor - Sandra. The cost for an initial session
is £2.00. To continue for the rest of the term it is necessary to pay up front,
but the initial session is taken into account.

Looking at Churches
The course begins on October 6th at 10 a.m. in St Paul’s Church hall in Victoria
Avenue and runs every fortnight until Easter 2010. There will be half-day and full
day trips in the summer of 2010
The group has diminished in size over the summer but we usually have between three
and four tables each week.
Although the group started by learning under “classical Chinese rules” one of our
members has introduced us to one version of the “Hong Kong rules” that uses a simpler
scoring method and enables faster play.
Since it is not a competition we may use either set of rules as each table decides
on the day.
