Chairman’s Chat - December 2019

Hello everyone

As winter frosts set in we may reflect that although heating costs are rising the cold is supposedly killing off some harmful bugs as well.  The frost has certainly stripped the last few leaves off the trees overhanging my lawn and I have just completed this year’s raking of the grass.  No leaf blower on this occasion, you will be pleased to note, as I think the leaves were too wet and well embedded, so I have spared the environment and had some healthy exercise.

This year’s Christmas Crackers, our in-house entertainment at the December monthly meeting, features some old favourites and some new faces. In the end we had a pleasing response to the request for talent.  While ticket sales have been strong, there are still a few tickets available.  The event is for the benefit of the Alzheimer’s Society.  Following November’s much improved attendance, I look forward to seeing a packed house for a magnificent medley of seasonal music, carol singing, and rollicking readings and recitations, followed by a Christmas buffet.  This year there will be more opportunity to join in, as well.

Your Committee has been pleased to learn of good progress in setting up the new and improved membership system (the Beacon system).  You will be hearing more about this next year as we move towards the renewal of memberships.  It should make life easier.

My very best wishes to you all for a merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
