Our Next Meeting

Our next Felixstowe Scribblers meeting takes place this coming Tuesday 15th July at 7.30pm in the Café Libra in Felixstowe Library.

This meeting will feature a writing exercise and means there will be no homework assignment this time. Instead simply bring along four words each written on a small slip of paper. These will be dropped into a hat then everyone gets the chance to randomly pick out four slips of paper. The four words that are drawn out have to be included in the writing exercise. It's a little creative fun which in the past has produced some real gems!

Our Beach Party went off extremely well and even the weather was kind to us though it did get a bit chilly later on. We started at 7.30pm and eventually finished around the 10.15 mark. Thanks must go to Ruth and Andrew for the use of their beach hut, windbreakers and chairs etc, and to everyone who took along food and drink. Moreover thanks to Tony for arranging some light hearted entertainment from members of the Rushmere Players and of course to young Lauren who played a few chords on her guitar.

Just some of the Felixstowe Scribblers and Rushmere Players and friends at our Beach Party

Added interest was the arrival of Jane who last weekend was published in the travel section of the Observer! Well done Jane! There are some of us who can't even get into the Sunday Sport!

It was nice to see Scott arrive, well and truly shattered but ably supported by Aimee and Ally! Scott for those who don't know, is MR COBBLER & MR LOCKS at 22 Orwell Road, Felixstowe, IP11 7DB Tel. 01394 273118 / 07903 114823 ... A terrific writer his attendance is often disrupted by Karate or dancing but is a great supporter of the Scribblers. So if you want your shoes repaired or locks fixed then get in touch with Scott. You know it makes sense! (Scott - The bill for the ad will follow!!!!)

Ruth stepped in to take Dave's place and read at the fully booked Writers' Cafe @ Starbucks in Ipswich last Monday - part of the IpArt - where Jane was also in attendance. We have yet to hear the name of the person who won the Short Story competition for which they were both shortlisted.

Hope to see you all on Tuesday!

Until then,
Keep Scribbling!
