NEWSLETTER FEBRUARY 2019
Hello everyone and welcome to our February meeting, and it’s Valentines night! We have a wonderful artist for you tonight, Nicole Jay, who we welcome back to the club. So, sit back and enjoy her vocal talents.
The Esplanade Hotel in Llandudno has been booked for 20 members for the 15th to 18th of March. I have paid in full as we are so close to the booking date, so please make sure you pay me your balances tonight or as soon as possible. Luggage tags will be given out next month. The coach leaves the stadium at 09.30 on the Friday and the Runcorn bus station at 09.45, calling again at Tweedmills on the way down.
The £500 non-returnable deposit has been sent to the hotel, so that’s it-we’re going! As I said last month it’s first come first served, and then we start a reserve list. Just a reminder that the holiday must be paid in full by the May meeting. The dates for your diary are 8th to 15th June at £378 per person. Sea view rooms, if they are available, are extra.
Membership renewals are due now. The cost is just £20, which represents excellent value for money. Please see me with your subscriptions.
On the subject of memberships, can I remind everyone that it is the AGM next month, so if you want to attend, and enjoy our delicious buffet, you need to be a fully paid up member. We will be taking a register on the night, so if you haven’t renewed, you won’t be allowed to take part. This year, as you can see on the notice, we have TWO vacancies, one, due to the retirement of Bryan Cartwright, after many years of sterling service to the club, plus the vacancy open since last year. If you see yourself as the newest recruit, then please make sure that you can commit to attending ALL the committee and club meetings before you apply. We would also like you to support the clubs activities, be they the trips, charity fundraising nights and any external promotional events we commit to. The more you contribute, the more satisfying it becomes. If you think that you are the person we are looking for, and you have the ideas, energy and a willingness to get involved, get your application in to Dianne before the closing date of 28th February. If you need more information, then have a chat with any committee member. Come and join us and make a difference.
The singer Jimmy Grace, who entertained us last month was very good, and certain to be invited back again. This month we have a group, Belmonte Road to entertain us.

If anyone’s name is missing from this list, please see a member of the committee to update our records.
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.
