NEWSLETTER SEPTEMBER 2019
The clubs 22nd birthday party was a smash hit. The Mayoress, Margaret Horabin helped us celebrate, together with Ged Philbin and Ros Wong. Our entertainer, Allan Gill was sensational, and had you up dancing. We will certainly invite him back sometime next year. The buffet was excellent, as it always is, and the room was decorated beautifully. I hope you all had a great time.
The proposed trip to York or Stratford was poorly supported and didn’t go ahead. Last chance for this year is a trip to Boundary Mill, Colne on Friday 27th September. The coach leaves the Red Admiral at 09.15 and the stadium at 09.30, the cost is £10 per person.
As I said last month the Mayor is looking for items for the tombola we are supporting at Victoria Park on 28th and 29th September. If you have brought anything in tonight then thank you. It would be nice to see as many of you as possible attending over the weekend.
We are welcoming the Dukes of Halton, Ukelele band tonight to entertain us. Please give them your best attention and enjoy their blend of old and new songs.
The “C” word
No, not that one! Christmas! Next month we will be issuing raffle tickets again for the Christmas party. It would be helpful if you could have them back to us at our November meeting please, but definitely before the party. Tickets will NOT be accepted on the night, we’ll be too busy doing everything else.
Next year we are returning to the Croyde Bay Hotel on the north Devon coast. Dates are Saturday 13th June for 7 nights, and the cost is £400 per person. If you would like to join us, then get your names down quickly. Non-returnable deposits of £100 per person are due now to secure your place.
Unfortunately Alice is unable join us tonight, so I just wanted to make you aware that she will reach the grand old age of 90 on the 15th of this month, an achievement in anyone’s estimation. So Happy Birthday Alice, have a great day.
On the subject of congratulations, Pat Williams and Roy Cosgrove are getting married tomorrow. We have sent them a lovely card and a small gift. We wish them both a happy life together.
Turkey and Tinsel
I am still in negotiation for a discount for the holiday to Llandudno. The dates for your diary are 22nd to 25th November. As usual, we will call at Tweedmills for a couple of hours on the way down. If you want to go, I will need your £100 non-returnable deposits tonight, or as soon as possible. The savings club is available if you want to spread the cost.
Nicole Jay came along to give luxurious hand massages, and her daughter and friends sang for you. It was hard to believe that her daughter was just 12 years old, such was the confidence and power in her voice. They are coming back to our Christmas buffet meeting to sing for us again.
As is customary for the club at this time of year, we are asking you to bring in items to help us fill as many hampers as we can. We will pass them to Age UK to distribute to less fortunate members of our community. So if you can spare any food or drink items which are still within their sell by date, please bring them in from next month and we will prepare the hampers. Thanks in anticipation.
