A Message from Dot Eynon
Thankyou for the cheque* from the photography club. Hopefully we will have a good sum to go to this worthy charity. Geoff thoroughly enjoyed the club and as he got iller he missed the people and the meetings.
The church was packed, with people standing. Thankyou also for coming and helping to give him a good send-off.
Love from Dot.
* £100 for Dorothy House Hospice.
This Week - Fish and Chips!
Please remember to bring your own drinks (glasses will be provided). There will be some salt, pepper and vinegar, as well as tartare sauce. However, you may wish to bring other condiments. David is devising a quiz, and Mary will be presenting the Club Salon awards. 39 of us are going, so it should be a good evening.
NB, though: as we could not meet last week, there are quite a few members who have still to pay for their fish and chips. If you are among them, please seek Criss out and pay her as soon as you arrive.
Also NB: this Friday is the final hand-in date for the Mid-Somerset Battle. Print or digital, open subject. Please help David out by bringing your best prints on Friday, or sending digital images (1400 x 1050) to email@example.com.
Last week's programme, the visit from Frome Video Club and the presentations by our members, has been re-scheduled to 15th March.
Geoff’s funeral will be held at 3.00pm on Friday 15th February.
St. Nicholas Church, Church Lane, North Bradley, Trowbridge, BA14 0TA.
Afterwards, family and friends will meet at the Peace Memorial Hall, which is very close to the Church.
Peace Memorial Hall, Southwick Road, North Bradley, Wiltshire, BA14 0SH.
After the church service, the Family only will go to the Crematorium.
Family flowers only, but donations can be made to Dorothy House Hospice Care.
At yesterday's committee meeting, it was decided that the Club should honour Geoff's many years of companionship and service to the Club by making a donation of £100 on behalf of us all. We hope that our members will be well represented at North Bradley on Friday 15th.
