Like everybody I am looking forward to the weather improving as we progress into the year but other than that there is not much from me this month.
Quiz & Chips
Yet again the forthcoming Quiz & Chips (Sat 25th Feb) was sold out within 15 minutes of the tickets going on sale. There is little we can do regarding the space available in Greystones House rooms 1&2 combined to accommodate additional teams so we have added room 3 so we can increase by up to 3 more teams. The PA system extends into this room so we will see how it goes with a view to the future. Even better news is that Jan & Brian Hollowell will be running this month’s quiz so you will see how little I know as I will be a team member.
Following my request for volunteers in the last newsletter nobody has approached me to volunteer their support to Norma. I hope she has been flooded with requests to help directly. Remember, “many hands make light work” and the more funds we can generate the lower we will be able to keep our membership fees.
Room 14 has now been refurbished and Pauline is already making use of the new space for new section meetings. Additionally, a new room has been created for the New-2-U shop to use for storage space. We will continue to look for opportunities to offer additional rooms to accommodate both new and expanding sections.
It is pleasing to see that the re-started Photography section appears to be establishing itself. Look at the Newsletter section for more information.
Additionally, we welcome a new section; Highcliffe Community Church is being established and will meet every Sunday at 10.30 starting from March 5th. Please see the newsletter for further details.
Finally, this month I would like to thank Mike Thacker and Brian Hollowell for stepping in to help resolve a couple of issues around the building.
I look forward to seeing you at Greystones, in the meantime, enjoy our wonderful facilities.
