News from the Area

   Hi folks. Hope you are all keeping well especially as Autumn has arrived. On Tuesday 26th August we had an auction night, Eddie Coxon and George Hughes were the auctioneers and there were plenty of items to bid on. It was an enjoyable night and a good laugh listening to the ‘auctioneers’ sales patter. A big thank you to Eddie and George for their good work on the night.

   Tuesday 30th September was a quiz night with Debbie our quiz lady. She set us some good questions for us to answer with pictures of famous film stars that we had to put the names to. Debbie was presented with a bouquet of flowers by Charlotte her daughter as a thank you from us for once again setting the questions.

   Later in the evening 14 year old Jake Hodgson presented our treasurer, Mary Lyth, with £140 that he raised for our local Zipper Club doing a 10 mile sponsored run at Westport Lake in Stoke on Trent. A very big thank you for a great effort on his achievement.

   We are pleased to welcome our National Chairman Keith Jackson to our November 25th meeting. Mr Jackson will be accompanied by his wife Janet and he will preside over the Grand Draw that will take place on the night. Good luck to all who purchased tickets.

   We will be entertained on the night by the Dink Doos and a buffet will be provided.

   Xmas Lunch is Tuesday December 2nd at the George Hotel Burslem at 12 for 12.30 pm, price £14 99. Contact Mary Lyth for more info, tel 01782 398676.

   Carol Service is Tuesday 16th Dec at Holy Trinity Church, Newcastle; the service starts at 7pm, followed by a buffet at the Church Social Club.
