Radley Retirement Group – Newsletter November 2018


What we have been doing

Our speaker in October was Chris Caddy whose talk was about the music of Eric Coates.  This proved to be a very interesting talk with examples of Eric Coates music to illustrate it.

In November our outing is a tour of backstage at the New Theatre in Oxford.  More of this next month.

Future dates

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 13th November when we will have a wine and cheese afternoon.

There will be lots of stalls and a very big raffle, refreshments, and a cake stall.  Do come along and support it.
