An excuse for a party and a bit of food

COPSE Associate Graham Chamberlain followed a trail to unravel a family puzzle that had links across Europe.  He shares his story.

Ben Greenwood, a professional Video Producer, is coming to show us video editing methods and run a workshop for us to learn how to turn our adventure stories into video clips.  An essential aid to getting our message out there in the modern era.

Pancakes to make and eat on Tuesday!

 

There is no plan for the Club to provide materials this year so please bring along any of your own equipment, if you can: fry-pans, spatulas etc., batter mix and ingredients for fillings.  Hopefully, there will be sufficient to share. 

 

Also, do remember that in recent years we have had the challenge of creating unusual fillings.

It involves mild stretching exercises- we are toning it down so everyone can participate.
Probably best not to eat up to an hour before.
The idea is to do 15 minute standing warm-ups the standing stretching. Then a bit of chair exercises and hopefully we would be warm enough to do a 15 minute mediation segment.

It’s a fun and stimulating general knowledge quiz  complete with slides so you can read the questions as well.

After our excellent fun in January, at the High Commission for India in London, we now have part 2 coming up this week, where Mr Raja, the organiser of the Pongal festival, is coming to tell us more about Tamil culture.

This all came about through the “Croydon Tamil Sangam”, who organised this year’s event in London. We should get on the guest invite list for ongoing Croydon Tamil fun.

The “London Tamil Sangam” was established 1936, close but just younger than Copse. Over the years, in my work in India, I have learned more about Tamil Culture, which is not so well known outside of the Indian Community, but in fact very much alive and well in good old Croydon, home of the COPSE.

Expect that we will get some combination of music, dancing, costume, stories and more in the hall.
