Silver Social Newsletter

Last week we had the first workshop of our Autumn/Winter Programme 2019 with Print to the People.

September Silver Social Workshop – Beginners Letterpress Printing
September brought a new activity for Silver Social participants to try out, Beginners Letterpress Printing with Print to the People. The workshop toured our market town Library circuit to bring local residents together to learn a new skill, with a nice cuppa and cake to finish it all off.
We had Jo and Paul from Print to the People facilitating the workshop, they were fantastic and so full of knowledge. They began by giving us a brief history of Letterpress Printing and a short demonstration before we all got stuck in, creating our own unique prints to take home. There was lots of variety in what our participants created, from presents for the Grandchildren, to signs for the postman “Leave in Shirls Shed” and a lovely 70 year wedding commemoration. The options were endless and it really opened up conversation amongst everyone, sharing stories about their lives and loved ones (fur babies included).
Print to the People are back again in November for Christmas card making. All venues apart from Thetford are already fully booked so we look forward to seeing those of you who booked for another fun workshop.
Thank you Jo and Paul for all of your help and expertise, we had such a great time and look forward to your return in November.

WEIGHTWATCHERS

The group has grown from three initial members to fourteen members with a mixture of ages and weights, each of us with our own reasons for joining and with our own targets.  The group is doing fantastically well and we are losing over a stone a week on average between us.  We are looking to challenge others to join us in order to feel more ready for summer.
Meetings are held in the Jubilee Hall every Monday at 9:30am.
