Wed 3 Aug: Charlbury Netwalk: midday from opposite Co-op

Are you a homeworker looking for a lunchtime excuse to:

- get away from your desk
- get some exercise
- meet new people
- discover new walking routes
- chat about homeworking?

This 'netwalking' group has homeworkers in mind, but all are welcome, including well-behaved dogs. It's a very informal group and is basically a regular time and meeting place to allow people to join together. Members will take it in turns to lead a walk of 1 - 1.5 hours (achievable over a lunch break).
Start and finish point is the old fountain on the Playing Close opposite the Co-op.
There's no need to sign up, just turn up on the day.
Details of the route will be posted here nearer the time. We look forward to meeting you.
Walks take place at midday every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Wed 3 Aug: FREE Meal ?

Wed 6 Jul: No such thing as a free lunch? Probus Charlbury

There's no such thing as a free lunch - or is there? The Probus Club of Charlbury would like to invite people from Charlbury to join us for lunch at the restaurant of Witney Lakes Resort on the first Wednesday of every month. If you are interested in joining us then we invite you to come along and meet an interesting and diverse group of people who enjoy dining together and enjoying an interesting talk which follows. The only requirement is that you are male (women should not worry there is also a corresponding club for women), you live in Charlbury or one of the surrounding villages and that you can make it for lunch once a month. Your first visit will be absolutely free and there is no pressure to join although we do hope you will.
Every month we have a talk on a subject after the meal for 30 - 40 minutes. The talks are very varied and cover a wide range of subjects and have recently included The Development of Computing, History of the VW Beetle and The Work of the Cotswolds AONB all given by experts in the subject.
So if you if you are free on Wednesday 3rd August and are feeling hungry why not come along for a nice free lunch?All you need to do is get in touch before Monday 1st August as we have to give them numbers by then.

Sat 27 Aug: Vinyl Solution XI

A month to go, so time to put the word out!

Last time we had Edith Piaf, The Maytals, The Flaming Lips, Peter Frampton, Captain Beefheart, Cabaret Voltaire, Stanley Holloway, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan and Radiohead - not to mention the more obscure artists the like of which you would never know about - were it not for people like you bringing records along and wanting to share.

So what will be played this time? That's up to you. Bring your Zydeco, Jazz, Death Metal, Grime, Funk and AOR. And we'll see where it takes us.

A Bank Holiday weekend in August - perfect Vinyl Solution time - hope to see you there.
