We’ve had a great August kicked off by mine and Carol’s birthday party, it was lovely to see so many of you there. The summer BBQ and Lee’s tour of Chester’s beer gardens were great too.
We have a lot of people signed up on our Meetup site but we need your help. New people are more likely to come along to an event if they see others are going too. Can you please sign up to Meetup and confirm when you’ll be coming along to events. Dave will send out an email with instructions.
In September we have a couple of walks an excellent band and a cinema night and our trip to New York!
We had our second mixer in April to attract potential new members and it was great to see some new faces. The success of the mixers has been enhanced by our presence on Meetup and we’re seeing more people joining our online group.
April also saw our 25th anniversary, the party was great and I’d like to thank Laura and Lee for organising it and Christine for baking the delicious cake.
As you know it’s our AGM on Wednesday the 4th of May. It’s not too late to stand for any of the committee positions, just get in touch if you need any information.
I hope to see as many of you as possible on Wednesday.
We’ve had quite an eventful month with a trip to Liverpool with Dave, or second new members event, basket ball matches and a boozy Easter egg hunt.
We have a lot to look forward to this month with our third new members event on the 9th, a night out in Telfords on the 29th (always popular) and a walking tour of Chester on the 30th. On top of these events, I’m really excited to be celebrating our 25th Anniversary on the 23rd. This will be a really special event and we hope to see many members, both old and new and prospective ones too!
You will remember last year that the committee were looking at new ways of attracting new members. Dave has been busy working his IT magic and signed us up to Meetup for a six month trial. A lot of other IVCs have already done this and we hope to expose our group to a wider audience. A separate message will be sent letting you know how to get involved.
Finally, a May date for your diary, We will be holding the AGM on May 4th (venue TBC). I would encourage all of you to think about taking up a role on the Committee, its a really rewarding way to get more involved with our IVC group. I will send out more information about the roles but in the meantime please speak to any of the Committee members.
