So the clocks have changed and we’re starting November with a weekend jam-packed with seasonal treats; make sure you read on into the bulletin quickly or you’ll be too late for everything on the first page!
We had a great turn-out for the Autumn Party at the Commercial so thanks to all the committee who were involved in organising that. I’ve also this month enjoyed finally making it to our monthly cocktail night; Kuckoo exceeded expectations with great drinks and excellent music!
Of course we have the Christmas Party coming up (Saturday 7th December 2013), it will be a great event so do get your tickets as soon as possible. The racecourse is a lovely venue and I hope to see lots of you there. Ask any of the committee for more information or check out the photographs from last year on our website. I’d better go dress shopping soon…
Finally, I’m delighted to give a warm welcome to THREE new members this month: Helen, Gen and Sarah!
It seems almost impossible on this dark evening that we started the month with a BBQ! Thanks for that, Gareth! Autumn is well and truly with us now, so to celebrate we’re having a party. I hope lots of you can join us at The Commercial on Saturday 19th; new members and those of you thinking about joining as well as lots of long-standing IVC stalwarts. It should be a great night, so please come along and bring your friends.
Our Christmas Party is not as far away as you’d think; we have reserved 40 tickets which will go on sale this month at £43, but remember there is a £7 subsidy for anyone who has put on a bulletined event this year (November bulletin at the latest). Do get moving if you’d like to take advantage of this subsidy and haven’t contributed to the programme yet this year. I really enjoyed the racecourse last year and so have SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2013 clearly marked on my calendar! Please also remember the tickets are first come first served; we can get extra ones but only if you let us know with plenty of notice i.e. not the week before!
This month I’m looking forward to finally making it to Kuckoo; I’ve heard so many good things about the venue of our new regular cocktail nights so will make sure this is the month I join Leanne and Natalie there for a drink or two! Also we have some great club nights.
Notices this month are a big welcome to new member Helen Spencer and also a huge congratulations to members Andy and Rachael who got married on Saturday 21st September.
