This week has seen Milton Keynes Theatre of Comedy show three episodes of Fawlty Towers in the Chrysalis Theatre at Camphill Milton Keynes. There were three episodes shown in September 2010 and were back by popular demand. Set in a 1970s Torquay hotel, Fawlty Towers is on of the finest farcical sitcoms British Television has ever seen. The script was written by John Cleese and Connie Booth.
The stories that were put on were A Touch of Class, Waldorf Salad and The Germans.
The community now has a tech lab. There are now four laptops that residents are using to do training with. They were partly funded by a sponsored walk that we did in August 2010. The first session of training happened on 22 February and the tutor is somebody called Bethany. In the first session we found out about the different types of computers ant learnt how do use a mouse.
JustGiving was started in early 2000 by two women, Zarine Kharas and Anne-Marie Huby, with a simple, but big, vision. They wanted to help break down the barriers to fundraising, and to use the Internet to allow people to raise more for the charities they care about which is exactly what Zolt Lokodi, a co worker from Romania is doing for Camphill Milton Keynes. (To donate just click on 'Just Giving' in useful links or type 'www.justgiving.com/Zsolt-Lokodi' in Internet Explorer).
