Weekly Bulletin Issue 104. May 29th 2014

Bitterness is an Ugly Thing! I was excited to see a new National Bunkhouse Weekend from Spice Manchester until I noticed the tag “U40”. This means that it is purely aimed at our community of members aged 18 -40! Oh dear, even with the help of hair dye and plastic surgery I don’t think I’ll pull that one off! If, however you are one of our many younger members, it could be for you! So if you want a weekend without me, click HERE

Photo of the Week Anne Zaalof is this week’s winner for capturing our happy ladies with their hoops! See HERE

Make Friends in a Flash! If you’ve recently joined us, a great way to get started with Spice is our New Members Mix & Mingle. Through a series of games you get to meet others who are interested in the same types of event as you. We’re at The Strathallan Hotel in Edgbaston this Tuesday. To be there, click HERE

Support “Team Spice” this Sunday Sunday 1st June is a big day for this group. We’ll be part of 7000 people taking part in the annual Great Midlands Fun Run. We have a team of 32 made up of runners, walkers and joggers. In addition, we provide a team of volunteer marshals who help with the event. Spice are also supporting sponsors of the day as we believe that the concept of an event where people of all ages and abilities take on a fun challenge to equal applause – fits very well with our own ethos of Spice. Most importantly, we use the event to raise lots of money for the Young Peoples Ward (teenagers with cancer) at The QE Hospital. The recent death of Stephen Sutton reminds us all what a worthwhile cause this is to support. If you’re not taking part in the day, please do come down to cheer us on. Even better, please sponsor one of our runners or sponsor the whole team by clicking HERE 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”.

Join Britain’s Best Bakers I had the pleasure of meeting TV baker Peter Sidwell yesterday at his Penrith Cafe and thanking him personally for introducing us to Hindleys of Lichfield through his TV show “Britain’s Best Bakery”. As a result, Hindleys have taught lots of Spice members how to bake their own artisan bread. It’s fun, it’s a very useful skill and you go home with lots of lovely bread.
