Chairman’s Notes for Tuesday 28th Aug 2018
A warm welcome to all our members and guests especially any new members.
Although I was not able to attend, the previous Hands On night was a great success with several potential new members wishing to ‘have a go’ lets hope this encourages them to become members.
Our next all day event is on Saturday 20th. October when ‘Emma’ the tiny turner will be demonstrating for us. As you know Emma is an excellent demonstrator. These all day events take a lot of organising so please try to support this event – tickets are available from John at the desk.
For many years we have organized a quiz following our Christmas Dinner. This may have run its course so we are looking for some alternative entertainment. If you have an idea or suggestion what this should be please speak to any of the committee. There has been a small increase in the cost of the meal, so the final cost of tickets will be decided at the next committee meeting. We hope to have tickets available at the next ‘Hands On’ night 11th September.
This is a good time to remind Committee members our next meeting is on the 4th September 7pm at the West Ashby Arms.
We still require more prizes for our Air Ambulance Raffle. If any member could approach a local business where they have a contact and persuade them to donate a prize it would be appreciated. We have flyers available from the desk with full details of the raffle that you may use. We hope to start selling raffle tickets early Autumn.
Thank to all who donated discarded clothing, shoes, bedding and handbags etc. Please continue to bring items to our collection point, as this is an excellent way to contribute to the Air Ambulance.
Don’t forget to visit our shop as we have a full range of finishing products and many other interesting items – all at bargain prices.
