First newsletter for 2021
The first newsletter for 2021 has been prepared and was mailed late December. The newsletter is available online, along with the course information and course timetable on our ‘courses‘ page, and new membership and course enrolment forms on our ‘forms‘ page.
The newsletter that was mailed by post contains incorrect information regarding the course ‘Getting it Down’. The online newsletter correctly shows that ‘Getting it Down’ is run by Sue Jones on Thursday from 10 to 12 at the Bathurst Baptist Church.
There are a few modifications to the newsletter which was recently distributed:
– Carla Archer’s Invisible Roma is on Tuesday from 2-3pm
– Jennifer Edmonson’s Art Attack has added an extra class – on Wednesdays 1-4pm at the Bridge Club
– Judith Henderson’s Mah Jong is on Monday 10am-1pm at the Girl Guides Hall.
