Kelvedon Players are doing this brilliant one-act farce later this month at The Institute. Mike is
disappointed that, having seen the original production, with a very young Maggie Smith and Albert Finney,

very highly recommends it.

PILATES CLASS MONDAY 1.45PM WITH SARAH
The Pilates method uses slow and controlled movements to strengthen your core muscles. These are
deep muscles in your abdominals and your back. Having a strong core will help you with other forms of
exercise e.g. running, yoga & dance. It will also help prevent injuries especially with your back. Pilates has
many benefits. If performed regularly you can expect to see inch loss from your waist and a tone up of the
rest of your body. Your posture and flexibility will also improve. People who suffer with back conditions or a
weakness notice that their back becomes stronger and doesn’t affect them as much in their daily activities.

to Mark Nicholls who on the same day won the British Over 50s’ Doubles with William Maltby, (sadly not
