Back again after Lockdown!

Hello everyone, after many months of Covid-induced lockdown. What a year it’s been so far! I am sorry that there has been such a long pause between my last newsletter and this one, however I’m sure that you will all understand that with us not being able to get together and with no cinemas open, concerts to see, etc. that there was little point in putting pen to paper, or rather, fingers to keyboard. Times of uncertainty and change bring us back to what is most elemental and crucial. Health, having people around who care for you, a home, food, … Continue Reading →

February Night-Out

It’s always good to get out of the house in the winter, rather than spend another evening holed up indoors, although it does take a certain amount of motivation, I know. Our next night out will be on Friday, 28th February in the ‘Bockstube’ which is the ground floor bar of Hotel Engel, Schafgasse 4 and I hope that I can see lots of you there. I have booked the whole place for us, from 7pm and as it’s one of their busiest nights of the week it took a bit of persuasion to convince them that we will fill … Continue Reading →

Annual Quiz Night…..taking our minds off Brexit

Tonight is our annual quiz night and a chance to get those grey cells working, at “37 Grad”, Lindau Harbour. I’ve booked the large room at the front from 7pm and I’m hoping that lots of you will be able to make what is probably our highlight of the year. Quizmaster Mike will be testing our memory and general knowledge. You can take part either on your own or in pairs and there’ll be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Please bring along some small change for the modest entrance fee and a pen or pencil for filling in … Continue Reading →

Post-Xmas walk + cafe meeting

Hello everyone, We’ll be meeting for the last time this year on Friday, 27th December. I’ve planned for us to meet outside the main train station entrance between 2.20 and 2.30pm. We’re then going to take a stroll across the island, taking in the always impressive nativity scene in St Stephan’s church, as well as paying a visit to the oak tree that we donated to the town to mark our 10th anniversary. Finally we can enjoy a restorative coffee or tea, and perhaps a cake or two, in the cosy surroundings of Café Vogler in Inselgraben. Please let me … Continue Reading →

May Night Out – 31.05.19

Thanks to those of you who came along to the Coffee Club get-together at “Mokka” on Saturday and to Natalie for organising it.
