Around the Clubs
BRIGHTON SUSSEX AND THE CHANNEL
held their Presidents Night on 19th
January at Cooden Beach Hotel. This has been the venue for a number of years and as usual a superb meal was served to us. There were 48 people present and most people knew most people! David Lord our National President was in attendance together with Paul Follows our International Councillor with his lovely wife Sue. Ann Lootens came over from Belgian Coast. Ann was made a Membre d´Honneur at the recent International Congress. We give her our congratulations and thanks for the hard work she has undertaken in her five years on the International Council. There was dancing to the hotel disco and an excellent raffle which was well supported. Thank you President David for swapping my prize of a large Gammon for your vouchers!
CAMBRIDGE AND ESSEX
held their recent lunch at Lindon House. Doreen Drewitt was there with her carer. Ron Avery was not there as he had been despatched by President Gill to attend the National Meeting. (Thanks Gill!) It is always good to see Ron and hopefully he found the National Meeting worth the journey.
is now on the final countdown for their forthcoming visit to Hamburg. Dieter told me there are now 62 in the party departing from UK at various times on 7-9 November. The Hamburg club have organised a tremendous programme for us. It will be very interesting to see the differences for those of us who were on Carnival Glory for the Congress to QM2. I am sure Dieter will give us a great report on our return for the next newsletter.
