Newsletter, July 2015


We have been informed that Joe Dorries wife has passed away. We have sent our condolences to the family.

On a lighter note, Colin Redican is still improving slowly, and hopefully it won’t be too long before we see him and Doreen back at the club.


Just a bit of fun to get us thinking. Teresa Cook has taken the time to compile it, so many thanks to her. Anyone caught googling the answers will be publicly shamed and excluded! A trophy at great expense to the winners.


Our holiday in Babbacombe was a great success. The weather was incredible, and the refurbishment of the hotel, although not planned for completion until next April, was very impressive. For a change we stopped off in Tewkesbury with its magnificent Abbey, for breakfast on the way down, which was universally welcomed as a change from a motorway service area. A new destination for our days out was Tavistock, on Dartmoor, where there was more than enough to keep us occupied for the day. Apart from Betty getting lost in Exeter and managing to enlist the help of an estate agent to accompany her back to the coach, the whole holiday passed without incident.

Bearing all this in mind I was more than happy to provisionally book for next year. The date you need to put in your diaries is Sunday 12th June 2016 for 7 nights. The price we settled on was £315 per person.


In order to make the holiday more affordable, we have agreed to start a savings club, with immediate effect. So now you can spread the cost over a longer period, and also build up a spending pot if you wish. This fund is only for holidays and is not to be used to save up for Christmas presents.

On the subject of Christmas, I would like to ask who would be interested in a Turkey and Tinsel break to Llandudno in November as we will need to get a deposit in soon.


We have received a cheque for £785 in respect of a collection at Fred Duttons funeral for which we are really grateful.


As published last month, we are planning a trip to Morecambe on THURSDAY 23rd July. The cost is £10 a head, picking up at the Red Admiral at 09.15, and Halton Stadium at 09.30. Please give your names to Dianne, and don’t forget to invite your friends and family too.


After many years as our transport secretary, Bryan Cartwright has decided it is time to hand over the reins. We would like to thank him for the sterling service he has given to the club. He will remain as a committee member, so we haven’t seen the back of him yet! We have been fortunate to enlist the help of Dianne Higginson to step into the role. So, from next month, if you cannot come to the club and want to cancel the pickup, please ring Dianne on either 01928-573801 or 07806-790635 as soon as possible, so we can let Anthonys travel know not to call for you.


Sorry to harp on, but we have had some really positive feedback from these slips. So if you have ANY comments, suggestions or criticisms whatsoever, PLEASE take the time to fill a slip in and post it in the box. Don’t forget it can be done anonymously if you wish.
