February was fun filled with a great variety of well attended events. We kicked the month off with the hoedown which I would definitely recommend if it comes round again. A great group joined Mike for a delicious Chinese meal. It was great to see new and old faces at the new member’s event and fizzy Friday.
March starts with catch up drinks at Duttons. We’ll be helping Dave C celebrate a significant birthday and waving bon voyage to Lee as he sets off in search of adventures on the high seas. We’ll round off the month with a stroll along the Dee and a pub lunch.
Please have a think about events for April and get in touch with Laura using the events email at the back of the bulletin.
We’ll be having the AGM in April. Do you think you could spare some time to support the club and join the committee? If so please have a chat with one of the current committee members of go to our website for a description of the roles.
I’d like to welcome Andy, Mel and Jonathan to the club.

We’ve had a great August kicked off by mine and Carol’s birthday party, it was lovely to see so many of you there. The summer BBQ and Lee’s tour of Chester’s beer gardens were great too.
We have a lot of people signed up on our Meetup site but we need your help. New people are more likely to come along to an event if they see others are going too. Can you please sign up to Meetup and confirm when you’ll be coming along to events. Dave will send out an email with instructions.
In September we have a couple of walks an excellent band and a cinema night and our trip to New York!
June saw another successful new member’s evening, a lovely afternoon in the Handbridge beer garden, a night out at Telford’s and a cinema night.
Following on from Laura’s email I would like to encourage you all to think about the type of event you would like to put on. If you would like any help or someone to co-host just give one of the committee members a shout.

The summer starts here! Let’s hope the weather is good to us this year.
As you all know, we had the AGM last month. The committee stayed pretty much the same but with Ellie making the move to the role of Secretary. A new award was introduced, the Chairman’s Award, to be given annually for going above and beyond. This year it was won jointly by Pip and Dave for innovation.
This month we have races, a band night at Telford’s, and our regular New Members’ Event on the18th. You’ll also notice our club night venues have outside spaces so we can enjoy the summer evenings.
Welcome to New member Rosie and welcome back to John.
We had our second mixer in April to attract potential new members and it was great to see some new faces. The success of the mixers has been enhanced by our presence on Meetup and we’re seeing more people joining our online group.
April also saw our 25th anniversary, the party was great and I’d like to thank Laura and Lee for organising it and Christine for baking the delicious cake.
As you know it’s our AGM on Wednesday the 4th of May. It’s not too late to stand for any of the committee positions, just get in touch if you need any information.
I hope to see as many of you as possible on Wednesday.

We’ve had quite an eventful month with a trip to Liverpool with Dave, or second new members event, basket ball matches and a boozy Easter egg hunt.
We have a lot to look forward to this month with our third new members event on the 9th, a night out in Telfords on the 29th (always popular) and a walking tour of Chester on the 30th. On top of these events, I’m really excited to be celebrating our 25th Anniversary on the 23rd. This will be a really special event and we hope to see many members, both old and new and prospective ones too!
You will remember last year that the committee were looking at new ways of attracting new members. Dave has been busy working his IT magic and signed us up to Meetup for a six month trial. A lot of other IVCs have already done this and we hope to expose our group to a wider audience. A separate message will be sent letting you know how to get involved.
Finally, a May date for your diary, We will be holding the AGM on May 4th (venue TBC). I would encourage all of you to think about taking up a role on the Committee, its a really rewarding way to get more involved with our IVC group. I will send out more information about the roles but in the meantime please speak to any of the Committee members.
