CORINIUM SQUARES November 2018                                                                                                      NEWSLETTER 141

Welcome to another Newsletter.

First a quick look back..........

Saturday 13th October 2018 Autumn Dance.

Callers Leah Clarke and our own John Boxall.

I hope that you all enjoyed the calling of Leah and John. Thank you for turning up in good numbers. Leah had a bit of a struggle to get here having to fight her way through floods and fallen trees in West Wales. She is quite new on the Saturday “big” dance scene and she did very well despite being a little nervous. Of course she was aided and abetted by our own John Boxall.

Chairman Alan presented a cheque for £400 to Alan Brazier who helps out at the Scrubditch charity.

Saturday 17th November 2018.

Marian’s Skittles Night.

I am sorry that I missed this one!! I am told it was a great evening of highly skilled bowling!! 28 members attended. Thanks to Marian for all her hard work organising the event and getting the food arranged.

Coming Events:-

Thursday 29th November 2018.

            Another 5th Thursday. So we are having a “Saturday Night Type” dance. No teaching!!  No “Pot – Luck”.

Thursday 20th December 2018.

Christmas Party. Slightly different this year.

We will start at 1915 with mulled wine!!

Your menu for the evening will be;

Cold ham and turkey, jacket potato, coleslaw

(Vegetarian option cheese and onion quiche)  

Apple strudel or pie, custard.

Maybe cheese and biscuits??

You will not need to bring any “pot – luck”

BUT you will be expected to pay at the door your £3 door fee.

You will need to bring a plate/ dish/ KFS and a drink if you need to. Tea/coffee will be available.

Unfortunately, after a long discussion with the man and reindeer driver, Father Christmas is too busy to visit this year - so no need to bring presents for other dancers. Please tick your name on the list which will be the notice board very soon and indicate if are vegetarian. We need to know numbers by 13th December.

As in previous years, we will have a charity collection to provide food for the homeless and less fortunate people of Cirencester. This is meant to be an alternative to giving Christmas cards if desired.
