EWSNEWS November 2021
The story so far
Friday 8 October: Croeso from 7.30pm on Zoom
We had a splendid evening with three very different quiz rounds and time for general chat.
Round one organised by Hywel and Pamela Williams was a surprisingly challenging “say what you see” selection of pictures. It was even more so, as even Hywel didn’t know the answer to one of them. What can I say?!!!
Round two was a series of Greek words – either a tasty dish or a stunning view – devised by Gilli Welsher. The answers came with mouth watering pictures and a brief description of each.
Round three was the music round – “name that tune” – with five, and then ten notes played by Huw Thomas. This disintegrated very quickly into a singalong as we all failed to mute our devices!
Many thanks to the quiz devisers, and to Margaret Brandie for hosting the Zoom meeting.
Friday 26 November: “Life in Hut 6” — Talk on Bletchley Park at 7.30pm via Zoom
Helen Campbell’s brother Gethin Russell-Jones will tell us all about their mother Mair’s time at Bletchley Park based on her diaries. Gethin is currently a Baptist minister in Cardiff. He previously worked in public relations and journalism. He has written 5 books, two of them documenting the wartime experiences of his parents. This insight into such a very important piece of British wartime history will make for a fascinating evening.
Sunday 5 December: Christmas carol service at 3.00pm via Zoom
It was not possible to arrange a Harvest Thanksgiving service as the Committee had other commitments, but we will have a service of carols and lessons, similar to last year. The Zoom details will be circulated nearer the time, so please put this on your calendar.
At last evening’s committee meeting it was proposed that we have a Zoom get together around 28 January, topic under discussion, and have a proper Cinio Gwyl Dewi on Friday 4 March, and a Gymanfa Ganu on Sunday 6 March, if that is possible. A visit to Edinburgh Printmakers, Dundee Street, Fountainbridge is proposed for later in the Spring and a trip to see the Great Tapestry of Scotland in Galashiels for early Summer.
I hope you keep safe and well, and look forward to seeing you soon.
