Monday 16th October 2017 - We held our Annual General Meeting. Sue B stepped down from the Committee and was thanked for what she had done 
over the past 2 years. We were pleased to welcome to the Committee 
Angela and Cherie.
The expenses for this evening were donated by David and Gill S in celebration of their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The members enjoyed cupcakes supplied 
by David and Gill, drank a toast to the happy couple and presented them 
with some flowers and a card signed by everyone. (David is recovering from 
eye surgery and this is the reason for the dark glasses)


Monday 23rd October 2017 - 
Another opportunity for a party as we celebrated the Diamond Wedding Anniversary of our members Pam and Dave Riddick. Pam and Dave kindly supplied all the food for a finger buffet following which we all raised a glass to them, presented them with a card signed by all the members and a basket of flowers (thanks again to Sue W).
Joining us for the evening were our former members Joan and Tony T, Molly S, Pat F together with Kay M who has not been able to come to Club for some time - they were all made very welcome as they joined in the celebrations. At the end of the evening Dave took to the stage and performed a singing call duet of "He'll have to go" with Simon.
