Last night we celebrated the end of another Shorelink year with a splendid supper at the New Inn. Considerable revelry and laughter, first rate service and excellent food. Our thanks to Patrick and his staff once again for another great evening..
Last week we had our AGM and re-elected our committee en masse, on the ‘if it aint broke, don’t mend it’ principle, and it gave me great pleasure to be able to thank them all for their input, especially our officers, who work hard to ensure the smooth running of our group. There was a special vote of thanks to Stephen, our treasurer, who was unable to be with us, but had passed all the financial information to Ro, our secretary. Ro delivered it with his usual panache and assured us of Shorelink’s financially security.
Sadly, this term we have had to close our doors to new members for a while as we are in danger of becoming too large to function properly. But we are aware that this is the price of success, and a good problem to have.
When we had concluded the business of the AGM and consumed some classier than usual refreshments, we divided into three teams for a fun quiz. Happily, at the finish there were only a few points between them and a good time was had by all.
Our new term begins on Monday, September 9th, but before then, we do, of course, have our summer garden party on Sunday, August 18th, so here’s hoping for our usual luck with the weather.
And I know that many Shorelinkers will want to support Tony’s sister Michelle, with her fund raising garden party on Saturday August, 24th, which will be at Tony and John’s house.
So a busy summer again. See you all on the 18th.
