There was much festive cheer at Village East when 15 members and guests donned party hats for our annual Christmas Lunch. Our thanks go to club member Nobby and his crew for serving us a delicious Yuletide meal with all the trimmings.
The celebratory mood continues on Sunday, January 7, when we are to reconvene at the Rocquettes Hotel (please note change of venue) for our ever-popular New Year Family Lunch. A highlight of this event, at which we would be delighted to welcome as many members of your families as possible, is the Crazy Raffle, which will again be organised by Isabel.
We need some exciting prizes to make the event go with a swing. So please bring along those unwanted Christmas gifts, charity shop purchases, diamonds, vintage wine or even that horrible shirt you have always hated.
May I also remind you that, as a new year approaches, our annual membership subscriptions are now due to be paid. Your Council has retained the 2018 rate at £55, which represents a considerable saving on our actual payment to Skal National and International.
In closing, may I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years. I look forward to seeing you all again at our January event.
