New Noggin


I thought I should let you know for the magazine that a few of us are trying to get a Northants noggin going. Eleven of us met at the Aviator Hotel in Sywell last Tuesday on a very infomal basis, and decided that enough of us enjoyed ourselves sufficiently to want to do it again. As a result there will be another meeting on Thursday 24th Jan 2013, and on the 4th Thursday of the month thereafter. Wives/partners are positively encouraged, so chat is not all cars!. For the time being, meetings will remain informal and chatty while we find out how many members are interested on a regular basis. Meetings will be from 7.00 pm onwards, with meals available for those that want them. All interested club members are very welcome to come along. If anyone has any queries I will try and clarify either on


jecarquilt@virginmedia.com Best regards.
