Bank Holiday Buffet Lunch and Garden Party
Our popular Summer Lunch will again be held at Rotary House, but this time the date has had to be brought forward to the Spring Bank Holiday in late May because of lack of availability at the venue on the usual date. Lunch, as in previous years, will be a buffet with home baked salmon, cold meats and salads followed by a tempting array of desserts.

Past events

Thursday 27 April to Monday 1 May 2017 Visit to Droitwich Spa by our friends in Voiron. See the 2017 page for more details.

Mike and Carol kindly hosted a Film Matinée and Soirée  on Monday 27th February 2017 – a good giggle with a French classic… Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and ice-cream and refreshments.

The ever-popular Curry Night hosted by Les and Jenny took place on 28th January 2017 and was a roaring success, as ever, with delicious food and great company.

Annual General Meeting Monday 28 November 2016 7.30 pm.
This year’s AGM was kindly hosted by Paul at Park’s Cafe, a very pleasant event with “nibbles and a natter” to follow. We heard the latest news from Voiron, had a report of the year’s very successful events and visits and learned more of the plans for the 2017 visit from Voiron. We have some ‘new blood’ on the committee, which is great, but if you can offer a bit of support and help to spread the load, there are still places -don’t hang back!
