2021 - A Year of recovering

2021 has been a challenging year for us all and the Club has tried to bring back some form of normality as restrictions have allowed. We have successfully started our meetings again these seem to be well attended and enjoyed.

Our monthly meetings have now finished for the year and although we were sometimes having to make short-term arrangements for speakers, we have been able to follow our normal meeting format on the months we could meet. A big thank you to the Committee for getting us re-started so successfully and a  thank you also to Frinton Golf Club, and their staff, for being very accomodating.

 

We have also been able to welcome quite a few new members thoughout the year, largely due to member encouragement and the effective recruitment campaigns we run periodically.

 

Although we were not able to run a holiday break for the Club this year, we have put on some activities in addition to our normal meetings, with the main ones being:

 

          Our Summer Ball in August and it seemed to be really enjoyed by all. You can see some pictures            of the event  by selecting the 2021 Summer Ball page, or clicking here.

 

          The Club has also held a Golf Competition in memory of Keith Banks. We all miss  the                            enthusiasm and energy he brought to all our meetings and the Club are so appreciative of his                  many years of Committee work and his significant recruiting of new members.

          We have held the following events at the Golf Club throughout the year and each has had a

           good attendance and has been enjoyed by those attending.

                                      Afternoon Tea, in the special Golf Club setting. 

                                      Film Night, with a meal and Popcorn..

                                      Quiz Night, with a meal and then a fun night between tables.

 

          We finished the year with our normal Christmas Lunch for members and their guest. This again

          had a good turnout and you can see some pictures of the event by selecting

          2021 Christmas Lunch  or clicking here.

 

At the November meeting of the Club, the Committee put out a questionnaire to all those attending, asking for views on future social events and any other comments. It is hoped that members views can help the Committee make 2022 another sucessful year for our Club.

 

 

Finally, the 2022 speaker schedule was issued at the December meeting and can now be seen by selecting 2022 Diary in the left margin, or, clicking here.
