Helo bawb - don’t think anyone will be keen to meet up on Christmas Eve, so this week’s meetup on Friday will be the last before Christmas, and it’ll again be in the open air outside the Castle Quarter’s Slug & Lettuce, so:

  • 12:00 Tuesday 14th December / dydd Mawrth 14eg Rhagfyr (via Zoom - let me know if you’d like to join us but don’t yet have the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 17th December / dydd Gwener 17eg Rhagfyr ( Outside Slug & Lettuce, Castle Quarter)

Hwyl a chadw’n saff

Helo bawb - it’ll be just the usual Zoom meetup on Tuesday this week, but it’s possible there might one also on the Tuesday after Christmas, so do keep an eye on this thread :face_with_monocle: :

  • 12:00 Tuesday 21st December / dydd Mawrth 21ain Rhagfyr (via Zoom - let me know if you need the login details)

Hwyl, cadw’n saff, a Nadolig Llawen!

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i Bawb! :champagne:

Helo new learners! :slightly_smiling_face: If you’re in the Oxford area or beyond but a bit hesitant about deciding whether to join us, do get in touch with any questions or concerns you may have (if you prefer, via a PM, i.e. personal message) and hopefully we’ll be able to set your mind at rest.

Hwyl a chadw’n saff!

Helo bawb - for this first week in 2022, we’ll stick to the same pattern of meetups, BUT this isn’t set in stone, so if lunchtime or Tuesday/Friday meetups aren’t possible for you, do get in touch as we want to make it possible for as many as we can to join in :slight_smile: :

  • 12:00 Tuesday 4th January / dydd Mawrth 4ydd Ionawr (via Zoom - let me know if you’d like to join us but don’t yet have the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 7th January / dydd Gwener 7ed Ionawr ( Outside Slug & Lettuce , Castle Quarter - see map)


As with days/times, while the Castle Quarter’s Slug & Lettuce itself might be “set in stone” (sorry! :roll_eyes:) our choice of meetup location isn’t so, again, do get in touch if you have any alternative suggestions for places to meet up in the open air until the Covid situation improves sufficiently for people to feel comfortable meeting up again in a pub/cafe.

Hwyl a chadw’n saff
John

Helo bawb - noisy building work across the road from the S&L prompts a change of venue this week to outside the Head of the River pub by Folly Bridge (see map):

  • 12:00 Tuesday 11th January / dydd Mawrth 11eg Ionawr (via Zoom - let me know if you’d like to join us but don’t yet have the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 14th January / dydd Gwener 14eg Ionawr ( NB Change to outside Head of the River pub - see map)

As always, all welcome! And do get in touch if you have any questions. :slightly_smiling_face:

Advance notice for St David’s Day of the Welsh-language choral evensong service at Jesus College. This will take place at 5.45 p.m. on Tuesday 1 March, hopefully in person and also livestreamed at https://www.facebook.com/jesuschapeloxford (I think you need a Facebook account for this).

It’s also Shrove Tuesday that day, so I’m afraid I will be at home on pancake duty!


#2254

Diolch, Owen!


#2255

Helo bawb - Friday’s change of venue to outside the Head of the River pub by Folly Bridge worked very well and there was little disturbance from the traffic crossing the bridge. We’ll be there again this Friday, outside but probably under cover at the riverside tables - some of these are slightly hidden by a low wall across the patio, so if you don’t spot us at once don’t forget to check these out. :slightly_smiling_face:

  • 12:00 Tuesday 18th January / dydd Mawrth 18eg Ionawr (via Zoom - let me know if you’d like to join us but don’t yet have the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 21st January / dydd Gwener 21ain Ionawr ( NB Outside Head of the River at riverside tables - see map above)

Hwyl a chadw’n saff

Helo bawb - unfortunately it seems that the outside tables at the Head of the River are no longer under cover :slightly_frowning_face: and now exposed to the elements :wind_face: :cloud_with_snow: so we’ll need to decide on another venue for this Friday’s face-to-face meetup…

  • 12:00 Tuesday 25th January / dydd Mawrth 25ain Ionawr - dydd Santes Dwynwen (via Zoom - let me know if you’d like to join us but don’t yet have the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 28th January / dydd Gwener 28ain Ionawr (venue to be confirmed)

Hwyl a chadw’n saff
