Older Fitzrovia newsletter August 2013

Hi Everyone,

Please find below this month’s newsletter. Many apologies for it being so late – do join us this Friday at the British Museum if you can. 

I forgot to mention that I will be away 19-26 August, will set up massage to run as usual while I’m away.

Best wishes,

Barb 

The FNA still hasn’t moved, we’re (still) waiting for the lawyers to agree terms. It’s looking now like we won’t be moving to 5a Goodge Place W1T 4SD until the end of August. When we do finally go however we’ll be just around the corner!

This Friday, 2 August 2-4pm we’ve booked an Afternoon at the British Museum, where we’ll have a chance to explore their handling collection and do a bespoke tour. I haven’t been able to arrange transport from Cleveland St to get down there. If you would like to come but can’t get there on your own please get in touch with me on 020 7580 4576. Otherwise please meet us at the information desk in the Great Court at 1.45pm. There are wheelchairs and other aides available on site.

Computer classes are on Wednesdays, 10-11.30am in the basement Craft Room at Fitzrovia Court 24 Carburton St. Since people are at different levels, the classes will be run more like a surgery to deal with particular questions you have. We have spaces for 5 people, please pre-book with me on 020 7580 4576.

Time to Sing is will be on break this month, it will start up again Monday 2 September.

Lunch on Mondays is available at the George and Dragon pub on the corner of Cleveland and Greenwell Sts from 12.30, at a discounted price of £3 for main meal only, drinks extra. This is through a kind donation from Sir Robert MacAlpine, contractors on the old Middlesex Hosp. site.  

Massage/Reflexology is on Wednesdays, 1.30 – 3:30pm in Fitzrovia Court. If you’re new to the programme or have been on it and haven’t had a massage for a while, do give me a call to make an appointment on 020 7580 4576.

All Souls Clubhouse has a very good range of friendly exercise classes available, including Tai Chi, dancing, and Falls Prevention. They also run two very useful services: Clubcare which includes visiting and other help, and a shopping trip to a cheaper supermarket than locally available every fortnight on Thursday. The lunches on Wednesdays are also still going. If you’re interested in any of these, please call Cherry on 020 7255 9756.

Cheers,

Barb Jacobson, Co-ordinator
