A New Year, another year older and another Assembly!

We managed to get through 2016, and 2017 is shaping up to be a great year, where no loved celebrities are going to die. In fact our next assembly is on the 8th of January, which was the birth date of Elvis Presley, Stephen Hawking and David Bowie! It’s also World Typing day in Malaysia, so we will be writing the entire Assembly at about 10:45 on the morning of the Assembly, so make sure you keep and eye out for any typos that we’ve left in there.

January can be an introspective time of year, so we thought we would delve into our microbiomes. What’s a microbiome when it’s at home? Find out at the Assembly. And what do you know? We’ve got Jon Turney; science writer, historian and lapsed academic to come and tell us about the microbiome/unity of nature and ourselves. We will, of course, also have the usual excellent songs, free tea, coffee and cake – and lets not forget THE NOTICES!

And we’ll do our part and wish you a happy time of year, and we hope we can share in the energy of the new year when we meet up on the 8th of January.
