From June’s Bulletin:
As May draws to an end and summer approaches, it’s time for me to write my first message as your new Chairman. I’d like to start by thanking all the new committee members for volunteering to help the club, as well as the existing committee members who have stayed on in their roles. I’d also like to welcome C onto the committee, who has stepped into the Events Secretary role.
From everything I’ve heard, everyone had a great time away at Derwentwater with J. Not only did she manage to arrange the hostel and some great activities, but even made sure that the weather was warm and sunny; congratulations!
Speaking of the rest of the summer, we’ve got two big events to look forward to. We have booked a camping barn in early August in the Forest of Bowland, which I’m really looking forward to – it’s a beautiful part of the country that’s often passed by. It’s only £20 for the weekend, and I’m sure there will be lots of chances to go walking, explore pretty villages, and have evening barbeques and trips to the pub.
And as I’m sure you’re all aware, in September we are repeating our very successful trip to Rhoscolyn. Given the fantastic time everyone had last year, I guess the only thing to say for both of these is “book your places before they’re all gone!”
We’re experimenting with some changes to the bulletin, as you can see; if you have any comments, let us know!
And finally, just a quick reminder; if you haven’t paid your subs yet, please send them in! It’s £17 (now that May will be gone today ~ hopefully giving way to a very sunny June) and you can give them to any committee member, or send cheques (payable to Cheshire and North Wales IVC) to us.
Best wishes for June,
