Photographic Print Exhibition and Coffee Morning – Saturday 22nd November

Hello everyone,
                         This is to remind you The Fund Raising Sub-Committee has organised a Photographic Print Exhibition and Coffee Morning to take place at The Thomas Cook Memorial Hall on Saturday 22nd November. We would like to invite you to help with the event or just come along and enjoy the exhibition and the social occasion. If you are able to help we are looking for:
a) Volunteers to set up from 9.00am and dismantle from 12.30pm.
b). Volunteers to assist during the opening time from 10.00am to 12.30pm.
c). Donations of a small raffle prize, for example, box of chocolates, biscuits, wine, smellies etc.
d). Volunteers to provide a selection of new prints to be exhibited.
e). Volunteers who wish to bring their prints or cards to be sold on our sales stand.
f). Volunteers to place posters in their locality.
We will be serving teas, coffees and squash and Coffee Cake, Carrot Cake, Fruit Cake, Lemon Drizzle and Chocolate Cake will be available.
These are always enjoyable social mornings so I do hope you will be able to join us, please feel free to invite, friends, relatives and colleagues to what promises to be another excellent exhibition.
Many of you will have had a handout at last Thurdays meeting asking for help with the Coffee Morning, so I apologise for the duplication.
Please let me know if you are able to help in any way.
Many thanks for your support,
Kind regards,

Barn Dance Event 10-October Cancelled

I’m disappointed to inform you the Fund Raising Barn Dance to be held this coming Friday has been cancelled owing to poor ticket sales. Many thanks to those of you that have supported us by placing posters, buying tickets and providing raffle prizes. The prizes will be retained for the Coffee morning exhibition on Saturday 22nd November.

Our next ‘key’ event this season will be on Friday February 27th 2015 when television celebrity Charles Hanson delivers his presentation at the Melbourne Assembly Rooms. His last talk was hilarious and highly entertaining so bear this date in mind for a great night out!
