Maldon Life Editorial June 2015

The latest quiz night in May was well attended with certain teams doing better than others.           Sue and Mike do a sterling job in running this bi-monthly so it’s a thank you to both of them this month. Yours truly was unfortunately absent due to family illness but “my spies” tell me I and my team were not really missed, certainly not on an intellectual level. Whatever did they mean?  All answers on an email to  No prizes, though you may be quoted on the website…

Personally I wonder if it was because of the wacky races section of the quiz in March where we scored 9/10 (and were quietly  confident of winning the section) only to be pipped at the post by the “Marsh and Unwin Families”, courtesy of Mick, “The Car mad-man” who scored 10/10 .aaah… If only.

The new caretaking team are safely installed and working well, with one of our caretakers, David retiring soon, we bid him farewell,  and thank him for all his hard workwith best wishes fora happy and healthy retirement .  Meanwhile, the never ending work and bustleat the community centre continues into the “warmer” summer months (we hope).

Justa couple of months ago I let you know what was going on at the centre on Mondays, This month it’s Tuesdays. The days seem longer now we are on summertime hours,  yes I know we have more gardening to do, but let’s be honest It’s good to get out and about meeting people; making friends; exercising or learning something new, so here’s what’s on:-

We kick off Tuesdays with Rachel of RAW Body and Fitness 9.30 – 10.30 Interested? Call her on 07793708097.  Then between 12.45 and 14.15 we have Yoga (K.E) Tel 01268 764018 or 07852213008 if you’d like to find out more.  Between 13.00 and 15.00 there is “French” with Wendy.  “ Mais Oui”.  If you are unsure what level you would be at, just call her on 01621 773023 and find out.                                                                                                                                                               Between 14.30 and 16.30 we have Table tennis for members of Maldon U3A. Tel C. Gordon on 01245223012.                                                                                                                                                  17.30 -19.00 see’s Trish from the Patricia Kirkland School of Dance taking dance classes for children aged 3 – 7 year olds and 8 -13 years respectively boys and girls.  It’s great exercise children and a wonderful skill for life, increasing confidence, improving posture and gait, whilst arming them for the future challenges in store in life.  Trish follows this at 19.00 – 20.00 with her Keep Fit class for the over 40s, but you are never too old for her class!  You can be sure to do only what you can personally manage and if you need to do your exercises seated then that’s fine. Finally the day ends with a rousing Zumba class 20.15 – 21.15 Now that’s good fun too, so why not give it a try. Call Joanion 01621743533 or 07787 512167 she’d love to hear from you.

Hopefully you’ve seen something you fancy or perhaps you have an idea for something new or an event you would like to hold at the centre. If so give John our bookings manager a call on 0300 0111995or visit the website to seewhat’s on the rest of the week.


That’s all for now, see you next month.
