September 2021 Newsletter

Dear Members

It has been 18 months since we last met and things have been somewhat challenging.

Following our first committee meeting, things are now starting to look brighter and we are hoping to move forward and get the club events up and running.

Lunchtime meetings

We will be holding our first lunch event on Thursday 21st October and would love to see you, 12 noon until 2 pm at the Abbots Barton followed by the next one on Thursday 18th November.  We have spoken to the Hotel and they have assured us they will be able to support distancing restrictions etc in line with Covid. If you could let Daphne know if you are planning to attend so we can ensure we have sufficient refreshments.

Subsidised refreshments, tea/coffee, sandwiches etc, for which we ask for a donation of £5 per person which we feel is still good value.

We will be able to introduce Jenny who has taken over from Malcolm’s secretarial workload.  We would like to thank Malcolm & Sylvia Hodgson for their tremendous support both on the committee and with the lunchtime raffles.  We will also miss ‘Daisy the dog’.

Christmas Lunch

This will be on Thursday 9th December at the Abbots Barton, 12.30 for 1pm sit down.  We have enclosed an exciting Christmas menu which will be £28 per person (subsidised). Please let me know ASAP if you would like to attend along, with menu choices and monies.

There will be the usual drinks on the table, but feel free to purchase other drinks at the bar.  Raffle prizes gratefully accepted, please bring them on the day.

Christmas Cards

Daphne has the new Christmas cards which are the same price £3.50 per pack of 10


An interim Annual General Meeting will be held prior to the lunchtime session on 21st October 2021 at 11.30am, all welcome.

If you do not wish to continue receiving anymore correspondence, please let Daphne know. We will keep you posted regarding new events/plans for 2022 and we look forward to seeing you.
