NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2019
Hi everyone and welcome. Tonight, we have Graham Deane to entertain us. I’m sure you will enjoy his music combined with his sense of humour.
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 had to cancel our plans to visit Boundary Mill, so that’s it for this year. 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. Once again, I’ll remind you that I would prefer bank transfer, or cheque over cash. Thanks for your help.
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.
We would love more people to come to the afternoon club in Runcorn to ensure its future viability. This month we have a visit from Trudy Jones from Halton Libraries who is bringing in some “memory boxes”, 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 club favourite Dave Osborne to entertain us. We urge as many people as possible to support the party which is on Wednesday 11th 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.
Unfortunately, the awful weather once again put paid to the vintage rally at Victoria Park last month. Better luck next year!
The next fundraising night is on Friday 18th, here at the stadium and is a murder mystery night. Members of the performing arts course at Cronton College will be acting out the plot for us, so we can expect a professional performance. A 3-course meal is on offer for the bargain price of £10 a head. Put the date in your diary and order your tickets tonight.
