Weekly Bulletin Issue 48. April 18th 2013
Video Appeal to get our Ducks Swimming! Yes, Richard has taken to his bathtub again to appeal on behalf of all the Spice Ducks who want to swim for charity on April 28th but are still without sponsors. Your £5 can change this for one little duck and also help The Cancer Support Centre in the excellent work they do .. oh, and your little swimmer could win you a prize as well!

Girl Power (on Skates!) Girls, if your idea of a stress relieving workout comes with speed, adrenaline and power it’s time to meet the City Center Rollergirls. They are giving us a beginner’s taster of Roller Derby which is a full contact sport on roller skates. You’ll discover how to get around a track pursued by a team of crazed lady skaters – hell bent on your destruction. Nice! For safety though, you’ll be padded up till you look like the Michelin mans sister! Go for it, click HERE
Ski Courchevel 1850 Yes, we’re off to the legendary playground of the rich and famous for our Spice West Midlands Ski Trip next year. It’s a trip that ticks all the boxes: Birmingham flights; virtually ski in – ski out; Europes largest linked ski area; great options whether you’re a beginner, an intermediate, advanced skier, snow boarder .. or just like celeb spotting in resort! Our first 16 bookers also get £60 off Inghams current brochure price! Find out how, Click HERE
8 sleeps till we’re licensed to thrill! Yes, just over a week to go until one of the biggest party dates of the Spice season. We’re taking over the Copthorne Hotel again for a themed night of 007 fun plus “sleep over”. If you haven’t already booked, you’re probably too late now, but those who have are in for a treat. We are also busy working on the programme for our Summer Ball on July 13th at the Botanical Gardens which is 50% booked up already! There’s no doubt about it, 2013 seems to be the year for the Spice party and it’s going to be a pleasure to share the fun with you all. It’s also fun when Spice make their own entertainment, so please don’t forget to book your place at the Jam House for Has Spice Got Talent on May 22nd. We have a real variety of performers this year and some great judges as well. We hope you have a great Spice week of fun and friendship .. oh and if you’re planning to spray yourself gold for the Copthorne next week, remember to leave some air holes! As ever, this Bulletin is designed to give you a quick overview of what is happening this week in Spice. “Anything in blue - should click through”.
