Text Box: NEW HALL
Well folks, as most of you already know the move to the new hall is complete. Still have plenty of dressing up to do around the place but Iím sure agree that the extra space is great. 
The main signs from the old hall have been moved across. I am getting quotes to post some new signage for the northern side (Vardys rd side). Each week I plan to make an addition to the hall. I am thinking about hanging all of my dan certificates, but that would be 24 frames; maybe too many. If you have any suggestions or improvements please pass them on for consideration.
Out of the move, we found that the old mats (that were under the floor in the old hall) cannot be placed together to make the full 100 floor mat. That said, anyone that wants to take some or all of the old mats are welcome to do so. They can still be pieced together in small groups of mats or with a great deal of effort all the remaining mats could be. 10 have been taken already so be quick. If there are any left in two week I will through them out.

Text Box: Leading expert
You are the worldís leading expert when it comes to your own life. You know better than anyone else what you truly desire, whatís most important to you, and what you most enjoy doing. Itís always helpful to consider the advice and opinions of others. Yet itís rarely ever a good idea to let anyone else make your decisions for you. A lifetime of experience has given you a unique and valuable perspective on whatís best for your life. When youíre seeking some good advice, be sure to listen to your own. Yes, itís easier to blindly follow someone elseís advice than it is to think for yourself. Plus, when things donít work out you have someone to blame. Youíre far better off, however, following your own best instincts when it comes to the direction of your life. Sure, that means you must take full responsibility, and yet with that responsibility comes the possibility of real fulfilment. Listen to others, learn from others, and let their positive examples inspire you. Then decide for yourself, move confidently forward and live the life you were truly meant to live
