New Horizon Club


NEW Horizons, the club for older people in the Woodbridge area, has been able to purchase some new games due to a very generous grant from District Councillor Caroline Page. Funding from the Locality Budget has enabled us to buy a floor basketball set, a Bean Bag target game together with a Music Quiz and Musical Bingo. These have proved very popular and we are very grateful to Caroline for her continued support of the Club. This month, members also enjoyed attempting a Japanese style flower arrangement using twisted willow, catkins and ferns.They produced some attractive and cheerful displays to brighten their homes during these dull winter days.We also enjoyed a slide show on Chile entitled ‘The Long Thin Country’ by Chris Parfitt.

Later this month we are having an Easter Treasure Hunt, where teams of members race to solve clues which lead them around a road map of a local town in order to reach the treasure first.  Treasure hunts usually prove very competitive and volunteers have to be on their toes to keep up with the demand for the next clue.  We are also looking forward to the first outing of the year.  On April  5th the plan is to go for lunch at the Ferry Golf Club in Felixstowe, followed by a visit to the Spa Pavilion to enjoy The Good Old Music Hall Days.

New Horizons meets twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays from 10am – 2.30pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, 11 Market Hill, Woodbridge, IP12 4LP.  People over the age of 55 who live in Woodbridge and the surrounding villages are invited to come along and join us for companionship as well as a range of activities including art, crafts, entertainment, and slide shows.  Refreshments and a two course home-cooked meal are also included in the cost of £8 per session.  Transport is available for a small additional fee. 

Don’t forget to pop into Woodbridge Library to see a display of paintings from our art group from March 2nd – 29th.
