Chairman’s Chat, October 2014

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all enjoyed last months events. My legs are still hurting after getting back from the Lakes at the weekend. We were very lucky with the weather avoiding the rain, although it did try once or twice. There was a group walk on the Saturday and then I decided along with Richard C and Andy C to complete a further walk on the Sunday. Most of the group opted for a leisurely boat trip around the lake and a walk around the shops in Keswick. A big thank you to Jo for organising it’s always a great weekend away.

I also made my 3rd trip down the copper mines at Alderley Edge last month, which is always fun and interesting and I can highly recommend it if Aidan or anyone else ever decided to put on another a trip in the future.

Don’t forget if you haven’t yet bought your Christmas party ticket there are still some places available but they’re going fast. For those that have reserved tickets we will be sending out an e-mail later this month on collecting the balance as we need to pay the hotel in November.

Finally I would like to wish Claire the best of luck in her new job as she will shortly be leaving us to take up an exciting new job in Jakarta, Indonesia this month.

Have a good month everyone 🙂

Cheers

Dave

Chairman’s Chat, September 2014

Hi Everyone,

I think I should have kept quite about the nice sunny weather in last months chairman’s chat; August seems to have ended up a bit on the wet side. We still had a good time and luckily it stayed dry for our fab Summer BBQ Party. A big thank you goes out to Rhian for organizing it along with her helpers and volunteer cooks Mike and Lee –it’s not easy catering for over 30 people on a tight budget, but the event was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Speaking of Rhian I think she might have set a record last month, well since I have been in the club anyway by hosting 5 events in a single month. I will have to remember that one when it comes to giving out prizes at the AGM next year.

Don’t forget to reserve your Christmas party tickets, they’re going fast at the time of writing this – 32 places have been reserved so far. I will be reserving further tickets with the Double Tree to make more spaces available; it should be a great night and I hope to see as many of you there as possible.

There are lots of great events to look forward to this month: our trip to the Lakes, another trip down the mines and bowling, to name a few that I’m looking forward to attending.
Have a great month everyone 🙂

Cheers

Dave
