Friendly Club Update – Nov 2013

Recent Events 

Holiday: The Friendly Club holiday at the Thoresby Hall Hotel was an outstanding success. The accommodation and facilities were praised by all those on the holiday. Our outings to Chatsworth House, Sherwood Forest and a boat trip on the River Trent were not troubled by the weather. It all worked out very well. Sincere thanks to Sheila Jinks for a well organised holiday!

Tuesday 8th October – In the Village Hall: A talk was to be given by Val Threlfall on the Secrets of the Honeymoon Suitcase. Unfortunately she was not able to attend. However, Lynda Warren was able to talk to us at short notice. She gave a talk on ‘A Dickens of a Christmas’ which was about Victorian England in the time of Charles Dickens, his life, times and his books.
