9th November 2014

With around 45 days left till Christmas your committee's thoughts have turned to our annual Christmas party. For the past two years it has been held at the Coach and Horses, but while the first year everything ran very smoothly, last year it was all rather slow.

Reckoning that its probably time for a change, this years event will be held at the Weir, which seems to be held in high regard by those in the know. Do come and join us - everybody is welcome - including non-members. Please try and send me your menu options promptly so that we can pass our details to The Weir in good time.  

Finally, a reminder that we have our AGM on 26th Novemeber. Please come along and help us plan the way forward for next year.

Best wishes


Andrew Kirkwood

Sami Spice Night
Thanks to everybody who came along for a drink in the snug on 10th October. Special mention goes to Dilys who came along with an album of cruising club pictures going back 20 years. Sami Spice served us up a delicious curry  and a great night was had by all.
