LIAISONS CLUB NEWS, NOTICES & INFO.

 

Thanks to those who organised events for the club in October:

Maggie Wells for the coffee morning at Boulters Inn.

Lindsey for the

Hedsor Charity Dance night.

It was a good social evening (as always) at Eton Wick for Skittles, cheers to David

McCulloch-spot on mate!

For our monthly meal out, we visited the Kings Arms in Amersham, Jean

Fell hosted.

Julie M. led a Liaisons team for a quiz competition in aid of local Charities.

Twas a night of merriment and jollity at Adams Park with

a Medieval Night, for Rennie Grove Hospice Carehe; we dressed up

as Knights (Sir Tim of the Graves), Wench's, Friar Tucks, Robin Hood's

Naves, etc. Good fun for a good cause, thanks Gerry.

Another fun night for Liaisons members making hay at the hoe-down, with

Daphne's Barn Dance. Yeehaw!

Pete O. hosted the Poppy Appeal Dance at Marlow Legion

Mike G. hosted the Fourways Theatre Company play Equus for the club.

Walk leaders this month: Ian, Pete, Richard, and Gloria for her short

walk. Golf Lessons with Ellen.

From Kay Stenning:

I am delighted to report that the Macmillan Coffee Morning and walk were a great success, we raised a massive £255.00 and I think people enjoyed themselves, I had a total of 25 people attending, quite a few if whom were liaisons members. People were particularly kind as my dishwasher had decided to pack up last week. 12 of us went on the walk which thankfully stayed dry if a little muddy.

It's good to see that Janet A. and Jean F. are fit and well, after their falls.

 All club activities and events are at own risk and appropriate footwear is advisable for walks.

Whenever a member wishes to attend an event they must first contact the organiser of the event by phone or in person to confirm their place.

We look forward to receiving suggestions from other members, who have not yet been involved in hosting or running an event, to come forward and consider putting on an event. The Committee members are keen to help you with this, as required. The more ideas the better to give us all a varied choice.

Full Membership Discount Scheme: the committee would like to reward those dedicated members who make the effort to host at least two events each year for the benefit of us all.

As a condition of membership all members are required to host one event per year but some members excel and arrange more events. Their efforts help us to build a varied programme to meet the needs of all our members.

Any fully paid up member who puts on one event in any one year attended by 6 members or more is entitled to claim a £10 discount off the cost of a full year's membership (£48). The onus to be on the member to apply for the discount.

All Annual paid up members are entitled to claim a maximum discount of £20 per annum. Thus allows any member to be able to pay an annual membership fee of £28 rather than £48.

The onus always being on the member to claim the discount on the annual renewal date of their membership.

Planning to run an Event? You need to get the information to one of the committee members (preferably Jim) 4-8 weeks ahead.

For example, at the committee meeting on the last Monday in January we finalize the program for March.

 What we need to know:

  • Event title and brief description.
  • Where it is being held, preferably with directions and post code.
  • The date and start time.
  • Any costs involved.
  • Pre-booking instructions if relevant.
  • Your name and contact details.

Why not let other member try-

  • Your favourite hobby?
  • Your favourite restaurant?
  • Your favourite pub?
Alternatively find out what is on and block book some tickets. Talk to a committee member - the club will usually subsidise forward sales of tickets.

Spa / Retreat Day - Anyone interested in getting a group of us on a spa/retreat day?  I am guessing it will cost a bit over £100. I will have to look at the deals but I am looking at a couple of treatments, lunch and some classes as well as use of gym & pool.

Liaisons walks
: walking is a great way to keep fit and to keep in touch with fellow members, plus you get to see some beautiful countryside, canals and river views, all for free! After the walk we meet in a local pub or cafe for much needed refreshment.

We walk every Sunday meeting at 10.45am for an 11.00am start usually finishing by about 1.00pm.
