Current Affairs Discussion Group

Following the cancellation of the November CADG meeting, we wondered whether to find another date this month so as not to lose out.

But it has been hard to find an acceptable date that suits all of us, so we have now decided to discuss the November ‘petitions’ issue in the first half of the December meeting and use the second half to give our choice of what we would most like to see happen (if we had the power) that would provide the greatest benefit for people’s lives. We could always stay a little bit longer.

We hope this suits you all and look forward to a lovely Christmassy meeting on Dec 12th.

Dear All,
Because of today’s weather warning for later today and various health problems for some of our members, it has been suggested that we cancel this afternoon’s meeting. So this is to let you know there will be no CADG this afternoon.
We are sorry not to be meeting up today and we will try to arrange an alternative day. this month. We will contact you again when a date has been agreed = we don’t want to miss out on today’s discussion which is so relevant currently, yes?. Sorry about this, but better safe than sorry I suppose.
Take care and stay upright!
If anyone knows the email addresses of Anne and Michael can they contact them please – although Sheila is planning to phone everyone. Thanks. Barbara

We would love to see more reviews about our activities, it only takes a few minutes and other members and non members are interested in seeing what you have to say. The email address is:-

Walking for Pleasure

Walking 4 Pleasure are meeting at 10am Tuesday (12th November), Cenotaph, Bolsover to go for a walk round Clumber Park Lake. Will be a bit mucky but paths are reasonable so not expecting it to be too bad. Should be very colourful at this time of year, so will need camera.

As this is a National Trust Park, you will all need to bring your NT card.

If this walk proves impossible due to the recent weather, we will find an alternative.
