NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2015

Welcome

Hi everyone, and thanks for coming to our Murder Mystery Night, the first we have held, so please bear with us. Steve Lever and his team have worked hard to put it on for us, so big thanks to them, and I hope you all have a good night.

News

I hear that Elsie Douglas has had her heart bypass operation, and that she is making great progress in hospital. However I hear that Tony Melia is in Whiston Hospital for investigations, Michael Lindon is in Halton, and Julie Cartwright is in Warrington. We have passed our best wishes on to all of them.

Turkey and Tinsel

A reminder that the £100 a head deposits must be paid tonight, with the balance due at the next meeting on 14th October.

Vintage Rally

Hopefully you have all brought along bags of items for us to offer as prizes in our tombola at the vintage rally on the 26th and 27th of this month. We are still massively short of volunteers to man the stall on both days. If you can spare a couple of hours to help us out, that would be appreciated.

Day Out

As previously advertised, we intend to visit Llandudno on Thursday 24th September. This is our last opportunity to visit the resort this year before the cold weather sets in. The cost is £10 a head and as usual we need a minimum of 30 members, friends and family to ensure it goes ahead. The coach will leave the Halton stadium at 09.15, and the Red Admiral at 09.30.

York Trip

Last month 31 of us ventured over the Pennines to York, where we haven’t been for several years. The racing festival was on at the same time, which swelled the visitor numbers. A great time was had by all, visiting all the usual tourist attractions, and we left at 6pm for the return journey, to avoid the bulk of the Friday afternoon traffic. I have already had comments that there wasn’t enough time to see it all, so we will plan another visit next year for sure. Thanks to everyone who supported the trip, hopefully you will all come to Llandudno later this month.

Respect

The committee and other concerned members raised a point about the lack of respect being shown to our entertainers, by a minority of people who talk loudly while they are performing. Can I please ask that we all remain quiet while they are on stage, as it is off putting for both the artist, and our members who are enjoying their act. There is ample opportunity to have a chat during the rest of the evening. I thank you for your co-operation in advance.

Club Caravan

We will be shutting down for the winter at the end of November, so if you are looking to book a week, then get your order in quickly.

Savings Club

There is still the opportunity to take advantage of our savings club to help budget for future holidays. Please see me to make a deposit.

Christmas Draw Tickets

This year we have opted to change the tickets. They will be £1 a ticket in books of 10, as opposed to 5 for a pound. It is a pain in the neck if you buy £5 worth, to have to fill in your name, address and phone number 25 times, and I know from having to separate the tickets that quite a large number are left blank. Tickets will be issued at the October meeting, to be returned at the November meeting. Tickets will not be accepted at the Christmas party.

Thanks to you all for coming to support your club tonight. Don’t forget, we still have suggestions slips available for you to comment on what we are doing right or wrong, or to ask us to consider a new destination for a day trip, or a different activity on club nights. We want everyone to have a say on how the club is run, and these slips are there for that purpose so please use them. Have a good night, and if we don’t see you on the Llandudno trip, maybe you will come along to support the club a he vintage rally.
