NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2017
Hi everyone and welcome. Tonight, we’re having a few games of bingo. With a bit of luck, you may make a few bob, so good luck to you all.
Turkey and Tinsel
A reminder that the balance for the holiday must be paid tonight as stated at the last meeting. Luggage tags will be given out next month.
This month, on the 27th, we plan to go to Bury market, where a considerable area is under cover in case of bad weather. If we achieve the minimum of 30, the coach will leave the Red Admiral at 09.15, and the Halton stadium at 09.30. We plan to leave for the return journey around 4pm. The cost is £10 each. Please invite your family and friends along for a great day out.
We have now cancelled two proposed day trips in recent months, and so Anthony’s Travel have moved the goal posts, with justification. Now, we can’t book a coach until we know we have sufficient numbers, which means that we could have 30 members wanting to go out, but no coach available, forcing us to cancel our plans.
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.
We would love more people to come to the afternoon club in Runcorn to ensure its future viability. This month we are welcoming a ukulele band, so come down for a natter and a free cup of tea and biscuits.
Christmas Draw Tickets
These will be issued tonight to all members present, and we would like them sold and returned at the next meeting please. Alternatively, you can pop the stubs in the post to me or any committee member with a cheque. NO CASH PLEASE. Remember that they are £1 a ticket again this year in books of 10. Please don’t bring them to the Christmas party, we will be too busy to deal with them.
We will be selling tickets for our Christmas party at the next meeting. The cost will be £10 a head. Admission will be by ticket only, and as next month’s meeting is the last before Christmas, can I ask that you bring the money to pay for them please. As always, it will be a great night, with good food and entertainment, in the company of friends. This year we have managed to enlist Dave Osborne to sing for us again.
We urge as many people as possible to support the party which is on Wednesday 13th of December. Meeting at 7.30pm for an 8pm start, we are hoping to finish at 11pm.
Once again, we will be accepting food and drink items for our Christmas hampers at the next meeting. These will be gifted to less fortunate members of our community, to make a difference to their Christmas, so dig deep please, and let’s see how many we can fill.
The next fundraising night is on Friday 20th, here at the stadium, and is a murder mystery night. Tickets are £15 each, which includes a 3 course meal and a disco later on. Let me know how many tickets you need. Other dates for your diary are:
