Morzine to Host our 2015 Ski Trip Yes, against strong competition, the wonderful French resort of Morzine has won through as the venue for our very own 2015 Ski Trip. This will also be the first “Spice Midlands” branded Ski Trip as we have invited members of Spice East Midlands to join in the fun with us this time. We have our own luxurious chalet with hot tub, steam room and a great hospitality team. But it’s the range of excellent skiing for all levels (including beginners) that’s the biggest reason to join us. These trips have a great reputation for fun and friendship and there’s an early booking rate on offer to the first 16 who get their deposit in. Check out all the details HERE

Photo of the Week Michelle Picton wins our much coveted “photo of the Week Award” for capturing 2 of our ladies in a most unusual position! I hasten to add that they were not knowingly re-enacting the Kama Sutra but taking part in our Biggest Loser Challenge! See HERE

Back from the Jaws of Vampires! It was a real privilege to take a lovely group of Spice members to Bucharest & Transylvania last weekend. We had a lot of fun and saw some amazing sights including historic castles and palaces as well as the fascinating remnants of Romania’s period of megalomaniac communist dictatorship. My expectations of Transylvania had been rather coloured by Dracula films and The Rocky Horror Show! So I was a little disappointed to find neither Count Dracula or any of the “sweet transvestites” home when we visited Bran Castle! However, it was a great trip and a great way to get to know a small, likeminded group of Spice members really well and share a lot of laughter. To see some of our pictures, click HERE We put on a lot of short overseas breaks through this group as well as through Spice UK. I do hope to see you on one and share the discovery of a new part of the world and a new group of friends. 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”.

All the Fun of the Fort! One of the most unusual Spice opportunities is our weekend where we take over Fort Belan. We have this remote and historic Welsh Fort, complete with its cannons, crenulations and ghosts all to ourselves for a weekend of fun. It’s an atmospheric playground and a lovely venue for exploring the local area with a new group of friends that you haven’t met yet! Click HERE
