It’s a New Term and our 2nd Year at Bushey Sage!
We are delighted that Bushey Sage has been such a success, and now has a membership of 400: due to its popularity, the membership list for 2017 is currently closed to non Bushey Shul members. To build on this success, the Committee has increased its range of talks and activities for the coming term which we are sure you will enjoy.
The concept of Sage was brought about by Leslie Pollock who has chaired the committee from its beginnings. We are grateful for all the hard work he has put in to this for the Bushey community and beyond. Leslie will now be involved in another project for the shul although he will remain on the committee. Stuart Bloom is now the chairman of the Bushey Sage committee
The fifth term of 2017 starts on 17th October and finishes on 19th December. The detailed programme for October to December may be seen on the Sage Calendar of Events page. All Sage members receive a Calendar of Events for the following month.
In addition to our regular weekly sessions we have inspirational Guest Speakers who are passionate about their chosen subjects and can sometimes be controversial! For those who want even more than the weekly Sage experience, we organise outside visits and walks to places of interest which may be local or further afield.
Annual Membership for 2018 is £20.
If you have any questions, would like to suggest some new activities or if you feel you might have some interesting experiences that you would be willing to share with our members, please contact our or call 07778 305367.
Bushey Sage sessions start at 1.30pm with a break for refreshments at 2.45pm. Between 2.45 and 3.15 all members meet for tea, cake and the chance to meet people who weren’t in their chosen session. The second sessions start at 3.15, and all activities at the Shul are finished by 4.30pm.
Whatever your choice you will be made very welcome!
