    As there's not much planned in the upcoming months for our newcastle womens group....(an our kids are constantly growing outta their clothes) i propose we hav another family (womens, mens an childrens) - clothing/handbags/accessories n shoe swap f the 192 members in our fantastic group on sunday 13th October, for all the lovely ladies an partners that missed out, or weren't able t make it yesterday. At danger park (skate park)at mayfield at 12 noon. Plenty of parking along the street next t the park, on the side near the public toilets, look for the tables and balloons, bring a picnic lunch an after we've finished we can sit n chat n get t know each other better enjoying the sun while the kids play or skate/ride the skatepark. Please pop this event in ur diary an invite all ur Facebook friends, family and freinds to make this a successful event, (the more peeps the more variety of items and sizes t choose from) an send out a reminder the week before. Ta, Jo

      This sounds great, I ended up going out to see the Notorious when the last one was on, and spent more time there than I thought I would!

    Hi Ladies,
    Want to remind or inform, the newcastle jazz festival on this day includes the fabulous New empire ballroom ragtime dance orchestra. starts 3.30 to 5pm 40bucks a day ticket.. not sure if there is an individual ticket for this gig but if you're not blind or tone deaf.. it's a show not to miss. I've seen them twice now and wild horses won't stop me getting more of this group of young and a few older excellent musicians addicted to 20's flapper era.
    Vocalists dressed in the gear of the 20's There's even a Euphonium Dammit!
