Chairman’s Chat – June 2013

Hi everyone,

I’m writing this after a great committee meeting, where I think we managed to achieve something despite the repeated fits of giggles!

The highlight of the month for me was the beer festival, mainly as there was such a good turnout from members new and longstanding; it was great to catch up with so many people. Also I particularly enjoyed the coach trip back to Chester, where two Scouse girls were lambasting a sheepish looking young man about his poor performance downing the yard of ale. If only it was on YouTube.

We’ve made some steps forward with events in terms of keeping you all up to date so I just want to summarise these for you here. The current bulletin will be e-mailed out as normal at the start of each month but can also now be found in the members area of the website. There is also a calendar feature in the members area where you can view Forthcoming Events (further into the future than just the current bulletin). Hover over the dates on the calendar and you can see what is on. This might be useful if you’re wondering which dates are free to put on an event, or planning your own diary around what’s on. However you can always speak to Hilary or Jenni on the events e-mail address to find out everything you need to know if you’d like to host something and are wondering how it fits in with our existing plans.

We have also developed our “shop windows” for prospective members – a public facebook page, and on the website a calendar showcasing past events so people can get a flavour of who we are and what we do. Do take a look, “like” the facebook page, and speak to Leanne, Aidan, or myself for more info on these.

We welcome this month new member Hannah Edwards – if you haven’t met her yet, do say hello to her on a club night soon!
Kay
