Brrrr isn’t it cold but at least we haven’t had the snow to keep us indoors like some areas of the country. On our Monday walks we have noticed the snowdrops in full bloom with the crocus and daffodil bulbs coming through nicely so that must mean spring is not far away. Our activities are starting to pick up again after the January blues and things are generally going well. We had a brilliant night on the 17th January, Kate’s Party were fantastic and most enjoyable in a lovely relaxed atmosphere, thank you to those of you who came and made the night worthwhile. The rapport between Colin and Kate was brilliant! The sale of our Souvenir Booklet is doing well and I have had several complementary comments about it so thank you to those of you who have taken the trouble to speak to me in such glowing terms. It does mean a lot when members show their appreciation for the work that goes on in the background. I hope that every member has at least one copy to support the club. We have a programme of future events listed elsewhere in this copy so make a date to attend at least one. Well that’s it for this month not much else to say (not like me I know some of you will be saying), except your club needs your support to continue with its success. It’s all up to you!!
