February News

 

Greetings 

December began with a Christmas lunch at the Blue bell in Easton on the Hill.  The weather was not kind to us & there was a lot of snow, but 10 of us did venture out to eat.

Our next Christmas event was a party night at Greetham Valley Golf Club.  Once again it was very chilly, but thankfully there was no snow. 


However more snow meant a post Christmas walk & meal had to be cancelled.  It has now been re-scheduled; hopefully to a day with no inclement weather.

Sadly one of our members & friend, Roger, lost his brave battle with cancer & passed away while sleeping.  I'm sure everyone will agree that Roger was extremely courageous & managed his diagnosis with great dignity; still managing to show glimpses of his dry sense of humour!  He was a very supportive member & also our treasurer; who will be greatly missed.  A good number of current & previous members turned up to show their respect as he was laid to rest; some having to rush out of work or brave winter coughs & colds.  

The next event was a meal at the London Inn in Stamford, a venue that offers tasty, good value dishes.

 

 

Our final event was one of our favourites, a “pie, pud & party” evening at Greetham Valley.  Lots of delicious pie followed by fruit crumble & custard; with a chance do dance off the calories! A lovely way to spend a cold winter evening!
