Social News:

Ann writes – ‘Happy New Year to one and all.
Our ‘game’ of Croquet on New Year’s Day was attended by 16 members – who were in good spirits, we had a room to ourselves and were able to have a good natter – some went to the Terrace room for lunch, others decided to stay at Barringtons but the uptake of those staying this year was down on last. It was good to see everyone and catch up.
The lunch at Bakewell Golf Club was attended by 19 members – 22 had booked but there were 3 cancellations due to ill health. I am pleased to hear that David, Pam and Marlene have broadly recovered. Once again the meal was very good and I can confirm that I have booked again for 14th January 2021.
The next social will be the Pub Do at the Grouse – due to popular demand we will be having a Fish and Chip supper with peas (garden or mushy)- this has been booked for SATURDAY 29th FEBRUARY – 7 for 7.30. The price of the meal will be £7.00 per head with a selection of puds to follow. Should anyone need a vegetarian alternative please let me know and I will ask Phil what he can do for you. If you are able can you please send me an e-mail to confirm if you are going to attend and whether you would like Garden or Mushy peas, I will ring those who forget!!
I will collect the money for the main meal on the night before the meal but you will need to be pay for any puds individually at the bar – sorry forgot to ask the price of the puds but they were only a few pound last year. See you then. Ann’

AGM:

The AGM has been fixed for Thursday 23rd April at 7pm. Agenda and full details will be sent out
in March.

Mavis Stevens:

As many of you probably know Mavis recently died. The funeral was attended by Frank, Sue, Ann, John, Ida and Marlene.

Car Parking:

I have had a reply from The Whitworth to our letter of concern regarding the car parking charge. I will be reporting the outcome to the committee meeting later this month. There is some other information useful to members and I will detail it in the next newsletter with other ‘start of season’ information.

Matt & Chris:

They both seem to be progressing to wellness and I am sure all members wish them a speedy recovery to full fitness as soon as possible. Matt has been transferred to Meadow View and Chris is at home. It would be a great cheer if they played a game against each other later in the year.


Northern Academy:

This based in York and runs courses not just related to becoming a coach but things like ‘back
to basics’ and ‘strategy’. I have had an email saying they still have some space on some
courses, others are fully booked. If you are interested you can find details at
