Dear club members

So far this year within 10 months including a June, July and August summer break we have enjoyed 18 different events! Coffee mornings, aperitifs, walks, outings, lectures, dinners.  An abundance of different activities! Each activity was very well attended and we are happy and pleased that our club members continue to attend and enjoy each other’s company.

I am rather sad to have to write that it is impossible to find volunteers and I ask myself if, in future, it will be possible to offer so many different activities, if we do not get some much needed help from our club members. 

We were looking forward to a great Halloween Party on Monday, 31 October 2022 in the clubroom. Of course the clubroom would have been decorated like in 2019 but this year, after two years because of Covid, when we decided we could celebrate again, there were no offers to help us decorate. We therefore cancelled the event.

For our coffee mornings we have found a solution, thanks to one of our club members! I know that it all looks simple and easy and, of course, this is also our aim - to offer a warm and relaxed atmosphere as well as good coffee and lots of treats in a nicely decorated room.

Three River Walk with a relaxed lunch at the Grotto America. Wonderful scenery, and beautiful weather. Well-done Katy!

The visit of the REGA base was very informative and indeed quite humbling.

How lucky are we to have REGA right on our doorstep. Well-done Kurt! 

The recital by Victor Vertunni di Albarella was indeed "balm for the soul". In these rather troubled times Victor, with his beautiful voice and lovely music, was able to offer our club members 90 minutes of peace and tranquillity.

The English Film Club

As you all know we have always worked closely with the English Film Club. We were always more than delighted to include the films in our autumn and winter activities. The film season usually started in October. Many of you have been in touch with us requesting information. We apologize for not being able to send out any details. The English Film Club is still waiting for confirmation of the location and also which films will be shown. We therefore must ask you all to be patient. We do hope that we will be able to send more information sooner rather than later!

I have my eyes open to the good things around me and I do try to make every single moment count. I hope that in the coming months we will be able to enjoy many more joyful moments together.
