November starts off with a BANG at the Lord Mayor’s Fireworks Extravaganza! Then there are some opportunities for some festive craftiness, a cosy dinner, film night then the chance to bang the drums and be adored at the Oasis and Stone Roses Tribute Night.
Novembers are traditionally quiet as we all get ready for the festive period but if you see something you like the sound of, and nothing else is on, please feel free to put on an impromptu event via WhatsApp. As you know, this type of event doesn’t allow you to have a Christmas party discount but last minute get togethers can sometimes be the most fun!
Remember to take lots of photos and send them to James for inclusion in the bulletin, best picture gets top spot!
Hope you all had a good January and have stuck to all your New Years’ resolutions. I always make a few in the hope I manage to keep to at least one.
I went to see the Theory of Everything last month, which was chosen in my monthly Facebook vote for our cinema night. It’s not the kind of film I would normally go for but it was really good and the acting was amazing for such a hard role to play. I can see lots awards coming Eddie Remayne way who played Stephen Hawking. I would defiantly recommend going to see it. I would also like to thank Rhian and Sian for organising a lovely walk out to the Plough in Waverton along the canal. There was a really good turn out; definitely one for us to do again in the summer.
This year is already going fast, after organising the Christmas party it’s now time to start thinking about the AGM, which is just round the corner in April. So it’s time to start getting your thoughts together on the past year and the future of the club and talking to members of the committee if you’re interested in getting involved next year.
Lastly I would like to welcome our newest members David Atkinson and Claire Bolton.
Have a good month everybody.
Well I’m back from my hols and down to business! February was great, with some big IVC nights out in Chester and some great films. As spring begins to show itself, do all get thinking of some new event ideas for the new season! It’s getting to the time where we’re keener to get out for the day and explore, rather than just stick to evening events inside in the warm! If you’re unsure about any ideas or how to go about hosting or organising them, chat to any of the committee for advice or pointers!
It will be the AGM next month and as ever I ask as many of you as possible to attend; it’s important you take the chance to have your say and give feedback on the year and the direction of the club!
This month I’m looking forward to Christine’s trip to Theatre Clwyd to see “Love Crime”, as the trailer we saw in Feb looked great! Also we have some birthday nights out, some outdoors stuff in Tarporley, Delamere and Ironbridge, and there’s an Easter pub crawl in the planning of epic proportions! Thanks as always to those contributing items to the programme; without you there’s no IVC!
Special mention for Leanne Salisbury who after months of planning and hard work, finally smashed her fundraising target with her fantastic Burlesque Evening last Friday. She now heads off to trek the Great Wall of China in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust later this month.
