Chairman’s Chat, October 2017

Hi all,

October is looking busy with some of our favourite events Fizzy Friday, a meal at the Slow Boat and a New Members’ event. We’ve also got a comedy night and a pool night, both of which were well attended and a great night out last time. And let’s not forget the Halloween party!

25 people have now confirmed that they will be coming along to the Christmas party. We have also reserved 15 places at the Brewhouse and Kitchen for New Year’s eve. Please get in touch if you’d like to come along. Tickets are £5 which includes a drink.

I hope to see you at one or more events this month.

Chairman’s Chat – November 2012

Hi everyone,

Autumn’s definitely here and brings with it a host of great things on in Cheshire for Halloween and Bonfire Night, with thoughts even heading towards Christmas. Tickets for the Christmas Party can be bought using the links found in your e-mails or in the members area of www.cnw-ivc.org.uk (password can be found as always at the back of this bulletin). They’re selling fast and I strongly recommend if you haven’t bought yours yet you do so within the next week! Should be a great night with great food and entertainment; I look forward to seeing lots of you there!

We’ve had some great well-attended events this month; thanks go to Aidan for taking a dozen of us down the mines at Alderley Edge which was a brilliant night and ensured I burned off at least some of the calories added from all of the months beer festivals and Hilary’s epic curry.

November is a very busy month with tons of great events so thanks to all who have contributed to this bulletin, especially those who are hosting their first event. There’s loads to look forward to so keep this bulletin to hand to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Hi everyone,

September began for me in Anglesey: a fantastic weekend with high points including Sally’s excellent cooking, an early morning dip in the chilly sea, and some good walks punctuated by great pubs! We’ve also had a good variety in club night venues: don’t forget suggestions for club night and grub of the month venues are always welcome! Of course the main event was our 21st birthday party…

Thanks so much for everyone who made it; final numbers were not far short of 100! Special thank you to Sally who was the one who spotted that it was our 21st in the first place, Alison for organising the cakes, Jo for getting us such a great DJ and to everyone who got in touch with former members and friends which made it such a special night! I had a great night, hope you all did too.

The Christmas party is our next point of focus. Tickets will be on sale shortly for our party on Saturday 8th December at Chester Racecourse. We have reserved 35 tickets but can increase this as long as we have enough notice, so if you are intending to come please buy your ticket as soon as you can so that no-one who wants to come misses out. The tickets are £42, with a subsidised price of £35 for anyone who has put on an event this year; events must be in the November bulletin at the latest, so you’ll need to get a move on if you’ve not hosted anything yet!

Hope to see lots of you there and throughout the month. Highlights for October will be Christine’s Halloween party and going outside of my “comfort zone” caving down the mines at Alderley Edge with Aidan and a big group of us.

I’ve been off on my travels, working in Paris during the week for the last couple of months, so haven’t been able to make it to a Wednesday Club night for a while. It seems that the decision to move around some of the more popular pubs around town has been working well, so we’re sticking to this formula for November.

Having been away, It was great to be able to catch up with so many of you on Saturday night, at Christine’s Hallowe’en party. Once again, Chris put on a fantastic spread and dazzled us with her sparkly mask and disco balls. I’m pleased to say that everyone rose to the occasion with masks ranging from the beautiful, the beastly and (courtesy of our friends in the walking group) the frankly bizarre! A big thanks to Chris for hosting one of the best events of the year, and a reminder to everyone that there is a subsidy of £50 to contribute towards food costs, for anyone who hosts a house party.

As November is almost upon us, I hope you’ve booked your Christmas Party tickets! We originally gave a deadline of 1st Nov, but as Club night this week falls on 2nd Nov, this will now be your LAST CHANCE to get the fully discounted rate of £36 if you’ve hosted an event. I will be at Club night, so please come armed with cash or cheque books, if you haven’t already paid for your tickets.

And a quick reminder that there are still places available on next week’s Ghost Train event in Llangollen. Please give me a call if you are interested. Hope to see you on Wednesday!
