Hi everyone and welcome. Tonight, we have Graham Deane to entertain us. When he was here in January he went down a storm, so give him your best attention please.
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.
Last month we went for our annual visit to Bury Market, and yet again it didn’t disappoint. It was voted the best market in the U.K. so if you didn’t come with us, you missed a great day. There are no more planned trips for this year, but if you have an idea for an indoor visit, where it doesn’t matter what the weather throws at us, please come forward, let us know, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
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, but make sure you get a receipt for it, to cover yourself from mistakes.
We would love more people to come to the afternoon club in Runcorn to ensure its future viability. This month we are having a short session of chair-based exercise, 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 book a fantastic vocalist called James to sing for us. I saw him earlier this year, and was so impressed that I booked him for Christmas soon afterwards. We urge as many people as possible to support the party which is on Wednesday 12th of December. Meeting at 7.30pm for an 8pm start, we are hoping to finish at 11pm. Just a reminder that friends and family are welcome too.
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 12th, at Runcorn Town Hall and is a murder mystery night. On this occasion, we won’t be supporting it, but the one after that is a Forties night, on SATURDAY 10th November. A superb and versatile vocalist, Debbie Allen, will supply the entertainment, and a 3 course meal is on offer for just £15 a head. Put the date in your diary, and order your tickets soon.
