Chairman’s Chat – July 2013

Hi everyone,

I’m writing this with the opening stage of the Tour de France on in the background, settled for an afternoon on the sofa after a busy start: I took a turn at marshalling at the Delamere Parkrun this morning, quite correctly having assumed that I wouldn’t be up for running myself the morning after our BYO Bistro night at Marmalade! Eighteen of us had an excellent meal last night, great value and it was lovely to have exclusive use of the venue for the night. Do check out the photographs on the facebook page or website!

Thanks to Aidan for the Wildboarclough weekend in June. Jo has Derwentwater booked for September and we’re hoping to have a UK city break in November as we felt we have a hole in the programme for a weekend away that’s not based around the outdoors!

July looks excellent: highlights include a bike ride, three very different cinema trips and drinks in town. The main event for me will be the always excellent Spitting Feathers Beer Festival out in Waverton- get your ticket FAST if you haven’t already, as this night has a great atmosphere and is something quite special.

Finally, this month we welcome new member Glenn Miller!
