There is a similar group at Severnbanks School now, run by Kate Newell as part of the TLC Welcome Project. Ask at the school reception if you are interested, or contact me and I can pass your details onto Kate. She's signed me up for her keep-fit class as well, which looks to be a whole lot of fun, with netball and circuit training planned. Not sure about hte circuit training, but I used to love netball, particularly as I grew up and went to school on the flanks of the Malvern Hills and no other side could win home matches as we had a steeply-sloping playground. In my infants school, the play ground was Tank Quarry on North Hill. We had rocks we slid down called the 'Biggy' and the 'Littley'. We graduated to the 'Biggy' on reaching Junior school. Them were the days. I must say though, that my son's school playground, also on a hill, has breathtaking views. They should be able to churn out artists and poets like anything with them growing up there, so I'm looking forward to seeing how he develops his creative side. So far, it's with drumming, dancing, painting and precision engineering.
Look out for the new community notice board, courtesy of the good folk at Lydney Town Council, coming to a development near you soon. We would like to hold a community day, with a meal (soup and baked spuds) and plant some daffs on the Green and other play areas, so please get in touch if you would like to offer food or help organising that. I hope that it will be in the October half term, possibly one of the weekend days, but I will put an announcement on the home page when we've got a plan in place.
Have a great weekend. If you are stuck for something to do this afternoon, there is a church fete on at St Joseph's church (near Naas Lane Community Centre).
