Chairman’s Chat, June 2014: Hello from Dave, our new Chair

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my first edition of chairman’s chat since taking over from Kay. First of all I would like to say a big thank you to Kay and the other outgoing committee members for all there hard work over the last year. It’s great to see that we have had a lot of new members join us and club nights and most events are being well attended.

For me I think the highlight of last month’s events was being part of Claire’s winning pub quiz team. We managed to beat a rival social group who do the quiz at the Bawn Lodge every week. The winning team consisted of Claire, Sophie, Greg, Alex M and myself and the vital winning question was which well known 3 word saying starts with the letters W… F… C… and comes from the name for flags raised as boats pass into port (sorry can’t remember exact wording but something along those lines). It had us stumped for a while but luckily we came up with the correct answer just in time.

Don’t forget to get your subs in quickly for 2014 if you haven’t already paid -check your e-mail for details on how to pay or let the committee know if you’re planning on not renewing.

Lastly a big welcome to our newest member Heather Duffy.

Have a good month everyone 🙂



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!
