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

The Liaisons programme was packed with (13) events for this month.

Our club founder Val Way came to the Crooked Billet for her presentation (which yours truly was to have the honour of presenting her certificate, but was unable to be there on the night).

The Backstage Tour of Royal Opera House was a success and very interesting thanks to Tom and Julie.

The Italian Meal at a Burnham Restaurant was hosted by Charlotte.

It was Ging Gang Goolie for Chris Power and those who went to the Scout Gang Show.

Sue S. hosted Ten Pin Bowling at Wycombe Bowl -highest score Richard.

The Glitter Sisters appeared at the Ivy leaf Club it's just as well their brother Gary wasn't there!

Thanks again Mike B for your Munch Club and also Cream Teas and Easter Eggs at home (he certainly knows how to enjoy himself!).

Angela Petrou hosted a Luther Vandross Tribute show at the Swan.

Our pub put on a St Georges Night and a Mr Quizmaster put on a fun quiz, members dressed up and it was a colourful occasion.

Over 20 of us went to Warners Holme Lacy for a weekend away and had a good time, weather was nothing like the previous Easter bank holiday but hey ho the company was great. Thanks Richard for organising this for us.

Finally the group Honeywell were at the Ivy Leaf Club.

Walk leaders this month: Richard, Ian and Pete, and an amble with Gloria.

Book Clubs 1 & 2 Maggie Page and Sue T.

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. 

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.
