What’s on at the Club next week

As it’s Maundy Thursday there will not be a meeting at the Club tonight. Next week we will be looking at some more prints and slides from the Club’s archives.


Panel Competition “Music”

Congratulations to Lou Humphreys who won the competition, Steve Jones was the runner up.


Continental Weekend Away and Oxford visit

It has been decided that rather than have a weekend away on the continent in October this year we would revert to holding it next year in late June. This has the advantage of better weather (maybe) and lighter evenings and gives the Outings Committee more time to organise a venue.

We also thought that it would be a good idea to have a weekend visit to Oxford either for one or two nights this year in July/August. As this would be vacation time we could stay at one of the Colleges. If this idea appeals to you could you please let me or anyone on the Committee (Betty, Peter Ergis, Paul Whitmarsh) know and say how many nights would interest you and what dates you would prefer in July or August.


John Bartlett

At John’s funeral reception the family displayed slideshows of images either of John or taken by him. You can view images from them online at www.helenbartlett.co.uk/john/dad; www.helenbartlett.co.uk/john/lanscape and www.helenbartlett.co.uk/john/classicdad.
