From The Chair – September 2021

I’m pleased to say that all Phoenix activities are now up and running and the
attendance is picking up. Jeff will be running the Wednesday afternoon social
at Sheepfair. So don’t get the blues on a rainy afternoon pop down. There will
be quizzes, card games, etc or just a cup of tea, biscuits and a chat with friends.

The kitchen can now be used if and when
required and there are biscuits!
Take Care

Special General Meeting- August 2021

A Special General Meeting was held at Sheepfair on Tuesday 10th August 2021, to discuss when it would be feasible to hold our AGM. Twenty-five Phoenix members, which included Officers of the Committee, Committee Members, Activity Leaders, and Phoenix members, were in attendance.

After discussion, it was decided by a unanimous vote that the AGM be held in January 2022. At the AGM officers of the committee, Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary will be appointed.      Nominations for these positions should be submitted by the end of December 2021.

It was also decided at the meeting that allows for the loss of 5 months of activities the renewal of membership should be delayed until January 2022. The Membership Secretary will issue new membership forms to Activity Leaders in December 2021. The new membership registrations will start from scratch and every member will be issued with a new membership number. All members present voted unanimously in favour of this.

From The Chair – August 2021

I’m pleased to say there’s been a good turnout at most of the activities, with other activities returning in September.

On Tuesday 10th August we held our first committee meeting since lockdown, with 26 activity leaders in attendance.

We discussed the change of date for the AGM as we felt September was not the right time for high numbers to attend the meeting.   The AGM will now be held in January 2022, this is also when the subs will be due, new membership forms will be available from your leaders before this date.

The kitchen remains closed until further notice but feel free to bring your own drinks/biscuits. We still need to be aware of hand sanitising, wiping door handles, etc We don’t want to have to close again.

Stay safe Elaine x


From the Chair – July 2021

Latest Phoenix update.

We finally made it Phoenix activities are mostly up and running. However, Bridge

is not returning until September along with Music. The date of return for the

art club is to be confirmed and we can’t get enough takers for badminton.

Despite the soaring temperature, we had a brilliant turn out for line dancing,

sequence dancing, Tai chi and 5 at table tennis. Haven’t heard from the other

activities as yet. Fingers crossed we are on our way to some kind of normality.

There are hand sanitisers on the walls at Sheep Fair and we are advising not to

use the kitchen until further notice. We are taking precautions where we can so

if you can use wipes on door handles etc we want everyone to stay safe and for

our state of mind, we can remain open.

Take care stay safe Elaine

Latest Phoenix update. – June 2021

Hi All,                                                                                                                                                                             Firstly, can I say a big thank you to all leaders who informed me of their
proposed start date. So it’s with a heavy heart that I write
this mail saying we are going to defer the start date until July 19th 2021. As
you know this is in accordance with the government guidelines. We are all eager
to return and carry on with the ethos of Phoenix, companionship, keeping body
and brain active but most importantly enjoying ourselves with friends. So look
forward to week commencing 19th July 2021 when we can all start enjoying
ourselves once again.

Kind Regards – Sue
