Weekly Bulletin Issue 63. August 1st 2013

“Summer Breeze” There is still an opportunity to try some of the wonderful watersports that Edgbaston Watersports have to offer. Stand Up Paddle Boarding HERE is a new emerging global sport all the way from Blue Hawaii! It's easy to learn and fun to do. How about Rowing HERE a sport that the British have a wonderful track record in, or Dinghy Sailing HERE an ideal introduction to sailing. The greatest danger of all with sailing is that you may get addicted!

July Highlights We say goodbye to an epic month of Spice fun today in the usual way with Sue’s video highlights of the best bits from July HERE

“Climb Every Mountain” Perhaps the current front cover of the newsletter inspired me to mention climbing. Not quite Mount Mackinley in Alaska but the Indoor Climbing Centre in Birmingham! Why not try this new skill HERE Judging by the feedback from last nights event, this is one not to be missed. You may prefer Climbing in the great outdoors before the seasons change HERE

Just For Fun..... How many song titles have you spotted in this Weekly Bulletin? The first person to Email Maggie with the correct answer will win a £5 credit note. I had a great night hosting last nights quiz – why not try one of the many quiz evenings that we offer?

“Don’t Stop Me Now” I’m having such a good time.. Summer strolls on with plenty of sunshine, evening walks, Crown Green Bowling, Kayaking on the river and some great summer concerts too. Music touches all of our lives in some way. You only have to listen to the lyrics of a song to remind you of a snap shot in your life. Even Spice has developed its own anthems. I have never seen a dance floor fill so quickly as when ‘Sex On Fire’ or ‘I Gotta A Feeling’ hits the decks. I am looking forward to joining another 70 Spice members at one of these Summer events, the Firework Championships on Saturday. We will be watching firework companies compete for the most spectacular display. Remaining on a musical theme don’t forget to join us at the Jam House, a wonderful personal way of seeing an act close up. The Christians ‘Harvest For The World’, The Stylistics ‘I Can’t Give You Anything’ are all appearing soon. 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”.


“In The Heir Tonight..” Our Heirs Tours of our regions stately properties have proved very popular. In the Autumn, Charles Berkeley will be sharing his life growing up in Berkeley Castle HERE, James Hervey- Bathurst is going to show us his home HERE, Eastnor Castle and Katie Neilson, the owner of Catton Hall HERE
