Rovers Weekend Sunday Activities

The Rovers Training Weekend Sunday activities commenced with a presentation by Iris on “Getting by in Glasgow – A Rough (very rough) Guide”. This was a humorous explanation of some colourful expressions used in Glasgow.

Colin followed this up with a talk on the North Riding dialect including a little quiz in which we had to try to guess the correct definition of a dialect word.

After a coffee break, Linda had us try to pair up word and origin. To make this more fun we all had to wear a paper hat with a slot to take a piece of paper bearing a word or an origin of a word and we had to find a partner with the corresponding word or origin.

Ruth led a workshop on how to say ‘no’ when one wishes to refuse a request to do something.

Margaret brought proceedings to an end with a winding-up and evaluation session.
