Newsletter 10/07/2014

Anyone for Bridge, Dominoes, or Chess? If there is interest in the notion of organised separate evenings for these games then just let me know. They could be monthly on a regular day, for example. If you are interested please contact me on

There will be a BBQ during July’s Music Night on 26th.  Tickets are on sale in the club @ £5 which entitles the holder to a standard drink from the bar as well as an item (sausage or burger) from the BBQ; any subsequent item from the BBQ will cost £2. You may purchase as many tickets @ £5 as you wish. We’ll finalise numbers from the tickets sold the day before the event. Looking forward to a fun evening.
