Social Afternoon at Dragon Hall
Thursday 5th August
13.00 – 15.00 Social Afternoon at Dragon Hall
Chris Barlow will be providing an informal talk entitled ‘Brief history of the British seaside’. Seaside resorts first developed in Britain in the 1700s when the practice of ‘taking the waters’, popular at spa towns, extended to the coast. Doctors began to prescribe immersion in seawater for the treatment of conditions like rabies, gout, hysteria, and melancholy!
Join us for a free simple lunch afterwards
Please note that this event is limited to 12 people.
Social Afternoon at Dragon Hall
Monday 23rd August
12.00 – 14:00 – Social Afternoon at Dragon Hall
Join us for a free informal lunch and then sit down and enjoy a free concert provided by Live Music Now. I am very pleased to announce that Flute and piano duo, Rosie Bowker and Aleksandra Myslek will be providing a very special performance for Dragon Hall members.
Please note that spaces will be limited, so must be booked very early.
Anyone for Cribbage?
I have recently got an online app game for cribbage, a game I used to play with my family years ago. Cribbage, or crib, is a card game, traditionally for two players, that involves playing and grouping cards in combinations which gain points.
It can be adapted for three or four players. How about a cribbage group? Don would be happy to run it.
From Nancy: Picnic
I would like to suggest a small group meet up and have a picnic. It would be great for all our members to meet together to express our feelings face to face regarding our experiences of Covid lockdown. As we are such a big group, perhaps we may have a picnic (fetching our own packed lunch) somewhere in a park of convenience from everyone. Would anyone else be interested?
From Chris : Margate Pride
In past years this good-natured and carnival-like parade through the centre of Margate has attracted large crowds of family day-trippers, locals and visitors plus lots of music and fun.
Margate is an easy to walk town with the marvellous Turner Contemporary, a large beach and fabulous Fish’n’chips.
The Train Fare [standard] is £29.00 day return and leaves from St Pancras.
