News Of the U3A Scrabble Club -

We continue to meet in the Town Hall  every Friday at 10 a.m.

For 1£ ,to cover hire of the room ,we usually have about three games per table-though some tables are quicker than others!

There is a coffee  and tea machine in the room-

WE stopped having cake and biscuits  for obvious reasons!

We invite  everyone who likes a good challenge to join us-you could drop in casually for a game and try us out!

WE are of varying ability-some have played for many years ,others have restarted recently-

Among recently found new words-( well,new to some of us) are ----

Brank -iron mask for talkative women
