Chairman’s chat – May 2011

Aside from the AGM, April seems to be a non-stop food and drink fest! Thanks to Alex for giving me an excuse to wear my beer-frock and Christine to scare us in her Burkha, at his International Appetisers party, and to Jenny for a great kick-start to the longest weekend ever, by twisting lots of arms (!) to get a large group of us to Chester Beerfest.

Whilst I was chilling out in sunny Shropshire last week, the May events schedule has been filling up nicely, and I can see some interesting future events, too!

The current weather is perfect for the planned day-trips to Donington Park and Alton Towers over the May bank holiday, and I’m looking forward to a repeat of last year’s Real Ale Train ride in  Llangollen. This month we’re also starting “First Friday ” and “Last Friday” food as regular events; Phil has picked the venues for this month, but please volunteer to host in future months at your favourite foodie haunts!

To add to the already eclectic mix, we have both German speaking and French singing evenings planned for June. As the summer is here, and the evenings are lighter and the weather more reliable, it would also be good to see some more active / outdoor activities being planned. So if you’ve a penchant for outdoor Shakespeare, own a bicycle, a barbecue, a frisbee or just a pair of walking shoes, please feel free to organise a suitably summery event!
