Hi everyone, and thanks for coming on what promises to be a busy night. Tonight we have no entertainment planned as we have a lot to get through.
Last months bingo session was a great success. All proceeds were given back to you, the members, as prize money, so I hope you all had a good time.
I am sad to report that Ken Ramsden passed away on Saturday 04/11/2017 after a period of illness. I ask you to remember Ken, Brenda and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
Tony Melia is in the wars, having fallen downstairs, breaking his eye socket and arm, and making a real mess of his face. He is currently in Aintree Hospital, but will be transferred to Warrington, when he improves sufficiently. We have sent him a get well card, and hope he will be well enough to join us on the Turkey & Tinsel holiday later this month.
(UPDATE- Tony is now back at home)
Turkey and Tinsel
Teresa will be giving out luggage tags tonight, but please note that room numbers will not be allocated until our arrival at the hotel. The coach leaves the stadium at 09.15, and Runcorn Bus Station at 09.30, on Friday 24thNovember. PLEASE,PLEASE, PLEASE remember to bring your medications!!! We intend to call in at theTweedmills for a couple of hours on the way down as our rooms won’t be available until 2pm.
Last month’s visit to Bury market was very popular, and the weather was very kind to us, if a little chilly. There again, what do you expect in the middle of October! This Friday, the 10th of November, we are proposing a trip to a recently extended Boundary Mill. Subject to sufficient interest, we will leave the Red Admiral at 09.15, and the stadium at 09.30. We should have you back for 6pm, and the cost is £10 a head. Please give your names to Dianne. Just to reiterate the policy though: If you put your name down for a trip, we expect cash on the night. If we allow you to pay on the day, and you don’t turn up, we will still expect you to pay, as we have booked the coach on the strength of interest. There will be NO REFUNDS.
Christmas Draw Tickets
I hope you have all sold the draw tickets allocated to you last month, and have the stubs and money with you. If not, then please hand them or deliver them to any committee member BEFORE the party.
Tickets for our Christmas party are on sale tonight, priced at £10.00 a head.Admission will be by ticket only. As always, it will be a great night, with good food and entertainment, in the company of friends. We urge as many people as possible to support the party, by bringing friends and family along. It is taking place on Wednesday 13th of December. Meeting at 7.30pm for an 8pm start, we are hoping to finish at 11pm.Club members who attend the January meeting will receive a refund of their party ticket.
Once again, we will be accepting food and drink items for our Christmas hampers tonight. These will be gifted to less fortunate members of our community, to make a difference to their Christmas. If you wish to contribute, but haven’t brought your donation tonight, ring any committee member asap, and they will arrange collection.
I believe the Ukelele band last month was a lot of fun, and worth inviting back in the future. Next week, Teresa has bought some craft materials, and you will have a chance to show off your artistic skills. As usual, free tea and cake/biscuits are on offer. Next months’ meeting is a free Christmas lunch at Halton British Legion. To secure your place we ask for £5 a head which will be refunded when you arrive. Please give your name and money to Teresa so she can give them the numbers.
The next fundraising event is on Friday 17th November here at the stadium and is a Motown and Soul night. There is a 3 course meal on offer, for the princely sum of £15. Tickets are selling out fast, so if you want to join us, give me your name tonight.
