Chairman’s Chat, October 2013 – dark nights mean it’s soon our Autumn and Christmas parties!

Hi everyone,

It seems almost impossible on this dark evening that we started the month with a BBQ! Thanks for that, Gareth! Autumn is well and truly with us now, so to celebrate we’re having a party. I hope lots of you can join us at The Commercial on Saturday 19th; new members and those of you thinking about joining as well as lots of long-standing IVC stalwarts. It should be a great night, so please come along and bring your friends.

Our Christmas Party is not as far away as you’d think; we have reserved 40 tickets which will go on sale this month at £43, but remember there is a £7 subsidy for anyone who has put on a bulletined event this year (November bulletin at the latest). Do get moving if you’d like to take advantage of this subsidy and haven’t contributed to the programme yet this year. I really enjoyed the racecourse last year and so have SATURDAY 7TH DECEMBER 2013 clearly marked on my calendar! Please also remember the tickets are first come first served; we can get extra ones but only if you let us know with plenty of notice i.e. not the week before!

This month I’m looking forward to finally making it to Kuckoo; I’ve heard so many good things about the venue of our new regular cocktail nights so will make sure this is the month I join Leanne and Natalie there for a drink or two! Also we have some great club nights.

Notices this month are a big welcome to new member Helen Spencer and also a huge congratulations to members Andy and Rachael who got married on Saturday 21st September.

Chairman’s Chat – June 2012

Welcome to the June edition of the Cheshire & North Wales IVC bulletin and my first Chairman’s Chat. Thanks to Sally who handed over to me with things in excellent shape, we’ve had a May packed full of events! I’ve enjoyed some great Friday nights out with lots of you and I’m writing this surrounded by the debris from a very fun Eurovision party; thanks to everyone who came along to that!

We’ve been busy planning the big things that form the backbone of our programme so we hope lots of you can make some of these: a camping barn weekend at Wildboarclough, Cheshire Peak District (13-15 July, contact Aidan C); Derwentwater, (3-4 August, contact Jo D), and a weekend in Rhoscolyn, Anglesey, (31st August -2nd September, contact Sally C). Also after researching and discussing at length, I have now booked the CNW IVC Christmas Party! This will be held at the Pavilion Suite, Chester Racecourse on Saturday 8th December 2012 so make sure you keep the date free for that!

Thanks to Alison and Andy on Events for pulling together some special stuff for the Jubilee Weekend to kick off June, and I hope this fabulous weather lasts for it! I am hoping I’ll be able to enjoy a picnic in the sun with lots of you at the Polo at Chester Racecourse this weekend. As always, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any event ideas and feedback you have for us.

Don’t forget to get your subs in quickly if you haven’t already paid – check you e-mail for details of how to pay. Please keep us up to date with the best e-mail address for you so that never miss out on anything!
