AUTUMN/ WINTER NEWSLETTER 2010
Annual Subscriptions (Due in January). Members will recall that at the last AGM it was announced that these would be increased for 2011. However the membership levels and support for the programme remain high and the committee feel that it would be inappropriate to implement the increase and have decided instead to keep them at the current level of £3 for single and £6 for household membership with a review as necessary.
2010 Remaining Events.
Thursday November 4th. Ashley Franklin’s talk “My Derbyshire Life” is a mix of photography, writing and history of the County discovered whilst producing articles for the magazine. Afterwards the winners of the photographic competition will be announced and Ashley will comment on the entries. Wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be served.
Saturday December 4th. This is the date for the first Members Evening which will include a quiz, a couple of short silent films (Laurel & Hardy/Buster Keaton), a buffet with wine and soft drinks and the chance to sit and chat. There will be a special raffle and as usual at Christmas we will be donating the proceeds to a local charity. To help with the catering quantities it would be useful to know the numbers likely to attend and to this end tickets are available at £3.50 from Alan Webster (01283 701838).
This concludes the 2010 programme and the committee sincerely hope that you have enjoyed the events and hope that you will renew your membership.
This is now complete and is attached to this newsletter and we hope you will find it of interest and continue your support.
Thursday January 6th. “ The Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service.” Steve Ratcliffe is the Station Manager at Kingsway Fire Station and his talk will be a mix of history, present scope, anecdotes and advice.
There are perhaps two further events that are worth highlighting in advance:
The first is the coach trip to Oxford on April 27th when there will be a guided walking tour of the City led by two Blue Badge Guides followed by lunch in Oriel College. This latter is a rare opportunity and is only possible because one of the committee members has a daughter studying there.
The second is the tour of the Houses of Parliament on June 13th when we will be shown round by official guides in the late morning followed by an afternoon cream tea on the famous terrace overlooking the riverscape. This event has been made possible only with the help and sponsorship of our MP Heather Wheeler.
