Just a few lines to remind you that our next meeting takes place this coming Tuesday, 2nd December starting at 7.30pm in the Café Libra at Felixstowe Library. Our homework assignment is for 500 words on 'Pain' or 'Joy' or even both! of them. Down to provide the 1,500 word open themed work are Caroline and Kay.

Ruth has provided an update on our social :




VENUE: The Castle Lodge Hotel arrival 6.30 for 7pm

We will have the whole dining room to ourselves, and there is a small bar. There is also a lounge area. We will have a 3 course meal (starter/main course/dessert), followed by coffee and mints for £15. Partners / friends are invited too.

There will be a choice of starter and dessert on the night, but the main course will be roast beef with Yorkshire pudding or cheese & parsnip roulade with sage & onion stuffing(v) or Scottish salmon supreme.

Hope you can all decide on your meal and let Ruth know on Tuesday!

It was a low turnout for Judy's talk at Woodbridge Library. Unfortunately bad weather and a bout of colds and flu zipping around didn't help. We are reliably informed by Morag that it was, once again, a brilliant talk and copies of Judy's book 'Like Ships That Pass In The Night', cost" £12.99. It is a fascinating read!

It is a long time since Kate was able to attend Scribblers but good news is that she has had a short story accepted for publication and details are still awaited. Kate has been spending her time oil painting and has also had some of her work accepted by local art galleries.

It is always nice to hear how our old friends are getting on so if you have any news please let us know.

Until then,

Keep Scribbling!
