Friday 19th April

Some of us met up in Cirencester ready for our drive to North Wales, stopping for lunch along the way. At our hotel we met Matthew, Jo and Stephen. The hotel was a lovely converted Castle. After a delicious meal we had some drinks in the bar while Matthew enjoyed a dance. Some of us were tired from travelling but Jo and Matthew had lots of energy to spend dancing in the evening.

Matthew Saturday 20th April

This morning, after breakfast we joined in the Shuttleboard Tournament. The teams were Yellow verses Black and the Yellow team won. Matthew got the highest score of the Tournament! We then took part in a quiz and got a respectable 13 out of 20 for the answers. It was then time for the Curling Competition. After lunch Jo, Laura and Pat had a look around the maze and gardens whilst Matthew joined the salsa workshop. In the evening we enjoyed the Disco, the theme was the 1970's and there was a Tom Jones tribute band.
Sunday 21st April

After breakfast we visited The Welsh Mountain Zoo, in Colwyn Bay. We saw lots of animals such as camels, meerkats, sea lions, tigers, bears and tiny monkeys. The parrots made a lot of noise! We enjoyed watching the penguins and sea lions. It was a lovely hot sunny day so we all enjoyed an ice-cream before heading back to the hotel for an evening of dancing to "Majesty" a Queen tribute band.
