Weekly Bulletin Issue 45. March 28th 2013

Monopoly gets Real! If you’re looking for a day of laughs with a fun group of people on April 7th, why not join us for a quirky game of Monopoly on a huge scale with Ian Jelf? Yes, we’re off on a coach to London for a day of discovery and lighthearted challenge as we try to play the game using the real locations. As ever, you’ll learn lots about our capital from Ian. Will you triumph or be sent to Jail? Click HERE

We’re off to Butlins! If you’re nostalgic for a slice of the 70’s, Spice have a treat in store. It’s a new national Spice weekend within an established Butlins break that features: The Three Degrees; Slade; Mud; Brotherhood of Man; Alvin Stardust; Heatwave; Jimmy James & the Vagabonds, plus tribute bands to Blondie, The Stylistics, T-Rex and more .. It has just been launched to all of the Spice Groups at 12noon today, so be one of the first to book HERE

Hit the Town Tomorrow Night Yes, tomorrow is our monthly get together at The Jam House for Spice Hits Town. We already have almost 120 booked, so it promises to be a lively Spice get together. As ever, we have a Spice area between 7.30pm and 9pm, with our own reduced price bar for this time. After 9pm we join with the public for the live music. Richard will be there to welcome you. If you haven’t already booked Click HERE

There’s no Business like Snow business! Yes, we became the butt of all jokes last weekend for postponing a toboggan evening due to “too much snow” .. oh, and worse still, postponing it for the second time after exactly the same thing happened in February. Such is the life of Spice! If you had any events affected by this unseasonal spring weather, we do hope you were able to re arrange your life and enjoy making snowmen instead! One event that still went ahead despite some of the UK’s worst weather conditions was our 4 day break to Belfast and the Causeway Coast. Many congratulations to Rose who by all reports did a brilliant job of coordinating the trip and ensured that everyone had a great time. We do hope you enjoy Easter, whatever delights it brings for you. 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”.
