Well the children’s Xmas party has been and gone. David and Lisa have finally recovered from all their hard work getting it ready (along with Father Xmas who as usual made his special visit to us) aided by a number of helpers. Thank you to them all for making this once again a lovely afternoon for the children. Whilst numbers were lower this year, those who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves dancing to songs played, and watching the magic performed by Mr Happy. Roll on the next one!

Now before I really get into my flow let me just say “Happy New Year to everyone, Readers, Clients and friends alike. Hopefully you’ve all enjoyed a really good Xmas break enjoying the good health which is so vital to us all.

Likewise I trust you’ve not indulged too much because historically January is that month in the New Year where having taken stock of ourselves after Xmas we have also made resolutions we intend to keep, on the road to good intentions. You’ll know the one and if not; I can give you directions. As most of you have SAT Navs these days just punch in CM96YH and before you know it you’ll be at the Community Centre in Sunbury Way, Keeble Park Maldon. Here you’ll be able to find something to aid you with those resolutions be it Weight Loss Programmes, Get Fit, keep fit Programmes ( for all ages). Playing a new sport. Returning to an old favourite sport, Dancing, Martial arts, Joining a group to learn a language, get your children playing more sport or learning to dance. Just a few ideas for starters. ( and don’t forget the regular quiznights we run). There’s also plenty more on the website, have a browse and see what you like. Remember it’s not just the activity you’ll enjoy the added bonus is you get to meet likeminded mortals who often become friends.

Or you might like to get involved with your local community. Join the Committee here. We always need new people with fresh ideas. Or you just might like to visit Councillor Flo Shaughnessy at her monthly surgery on the 1st Saturday each month between 10 and 12 noon to discuss matters of concern to you.

Whatever the reason. Come along and see what we have to offer. Or visit our website To look at what’s on and when. It differs from week to week. It’s your Community, make the most of it.

On that note I am delighted to say that our 1st Quiz of 2019 is on Saturday 26th January January.

As usual our Quizmaster is Kevin Briggs and we’re looking forward to a great evening as usual.

8pm start so please arrive by 7.45pm so that you’re seated in time for the start.

We’ll be collecting your entrance fees of £4 for the over 16’s on the door, allowing for extra free time during the two breaks. Hopefully we’ll see you there and don’t forget to bring your drinks and niibbles with you.

Bye for now.
