NEWSLETTER JUNE 2020
Hello everyone, and welcome to the June newsletter. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, June’s meeting has also had to be cancelled. All our monthly meetings and trips will be cancelled until the Government lift all restrictions. Hopefully, this will not take too long, and we send our best wishes to all members, family and friends to stay safe and well at this difficult time.
An early reminder for everyone. The meeting in November has had the date changed because the stadium needs both suites for events on the day of our meeting. The new date is Wednesday 17th November. Please mark it on your calendars or diaries.
Turkey and Tinsel Break
Once again due to the Coronavirus our spring break to Blackpool has also had to be cancelled. The Hotel have offered us an alternative date of Dec 18th to 21st for the same price of £99, thus becoming a Turkey & Tinsel weekend.
Normally around this time of year members are looking forward to our annual week away to Devon, but unfortunately the holiday to Croyde Bay has been cancelled. The full deposit has been refunded so members have the option of a full refund of payments made or to transfer the credit over towards the 2021 holiday which is discussed below in the newsletter.
Summer Holiday 2021
11 June 2021
As you will see from the attached leaflet, included with this newsletter, we have managed to secure a 7-day holiday for club members at Lakeside Holiday Village on Hayling Island, Hampshire for next year. The facilities appear to be excellent and there are a lot of on-site activities to take part in if you are interested. We will also be able to explore a different area of the country and have access to a beach without too much difficulty. The cost is £429 but to secure your place on the holiday you will need to pay a £30 non-refundable deposit before 2nd July 2020. Warner Leisure are also able provide group holiday insurance for £13 per person, which is extremely reasonable. If you wish to access this cover, a decision must be made before we pay the deposit. Payments for the deposit and insurance, if needed, can be paid into the club’s bank account by online banking using the following details:
Sort Code: 60-19-24
Account No: 43542581
Please remember to put your name in the Ref Field.
Warner Holiday Protection Cover details are in the attached leaflet.
Once more the afternoon club has been cancelled until further notice.

Just a reminder to all members that we have a website and Facebook page, so feel free to visit these sites and comment on any of the articles:
If you would like anything going onto the website or Facebook, for example photographs or reviews on any of the club events, feel free to send them to me David Ryder at the following email address:
Teresa Cook, Sandra Byrne and Rose Cook still keep in touch with our members every fortnight by phone to enquire on their wellbeing. They check if there are any issue’s they require support with, and we also continue to send out the monthly newsletter. If you need any help or fancy a chat to relieve your loneliness, please do not hesitate to call one of the committee members. We are only too happy to help if we can. If anybody would like to be involved in a zoom chat with other members, this is something we can help you set up if you contact Dianne Ryder.
One more potential scam going around:
TV’s sold from the back of vans!
Halton Trading Standards wants to make consumers aware that TV’s are being sold from the back of vans at various sites across Cheshire. There is a possibility the traders may turn up within the Borough. We would advise consumers to be wary of purchasing these TV’s, as there is no way of knowing if they are working, safe and/or stolen goods. If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud, please contact one of our specialist officers, Linda or Sue on 0151 511 8785 or 0151 511 8775. They are already working with people in Halton who have lost thousands of pounds to scams.
Take care and STAY SAFE everyone.
