Len, Margaret and Audrey welcome friends old and new to join them in 2018 for a GUID BLETHER.
Guid Blethers is holding its Christmas party this Monday, 18 December. Come and join us for the last session of 2017. We have enjoyed a Pot Luck and Pantomime sessions recently – Oh Yes We Have Oh No We Haven’t! Programmes are now available for 2018 when we hope to see you.
Monday 6 November we will be looking at Radio: Now and Then. And there will be a real surprise which will be great fun for everyone. To find out what it is, come and join the session.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ON 16 OCTOBER FOR HI HO, HI HO IT’S OFF TO WORK WE GO. And we found out all about what we did when we were at work and what types of work went on in and around Edinburgh.
It was good to see old and new friends at the meeting on 18 September when we shared holiday memories and sang a well remembered mission song from the far past. Come and join our fun at the next meeting. A warm welcome ensured.
Guid Blethers has enjoyed a summer break and is ready to start its 2017 – 2018 programme. It meets again the third Monday in September. Len, Margaret and Audrey will be providing a variety of topics, supported by photographs, the computer and guid blether. If you know of anyone who might enjoy joining the group, let them know and bring them along. And if there is any topic you would like to blether about, please let us know. We look forward to seeing old faces and new faces when we start on 18 September.
The programme is below:
16 October Hi Ho Hi Ho it’s off to work we go
6 November Radio Now and Then
20 November Pot Luck subjects
4 December Pantomime Season
18 December Christmas Party
Len Purves, Margaret Anderson and Audrey Currie
We chat, blether and enjoy each other’s company. What do we blether about? It’s not the weather or our latest ailments, but all sort of subjects from games we used to play to the trams. We all have various opinions and ideas and this leads to lively discussion, and sometimes goes off to something completely different. We bring exciting and varied topics and ideas to our sessions, using computer and projector to illustrate our topics. Guid Blethers offers an opportunity to make new friends, share interests and stories, exchange ideas and views. It may be you feel isolated or lonely and want company. Being in a group, getting involved and participating, can give a sense of value, belonging and well-being. We also have fun and tea and cake!
