2020 has been a difficult year for all ,none of us could have guessed how it would turn out. The Board had so many ideas on what to offer you to celebrate Xmas ; a festive coffee morning (or 2), our usual grand charity raffle, a lunch at Sant’Eustorgio , a party, an aperitivo evening but
the reality will be so different.
As it stands , what we can offer you is FRIENDSHIP . As a token of our friendship we would like to give each Member a Xmas gift , which we hope you will like. All gifts have been sourced from local Charities. Also we have been donated, at time of writing, 22 prizes , so at each of the 2 coffee mornings there will be a draw of prizes . Your name will go in a hat and you have the chance to win a British hamper, wine, a voucher, honey or whisky. One member one ticket.
I saw this short article on facebook last week and I like it very much
“The greatest gift you can give someone is your time. Because when you give your time, you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back. “
Thank you to All The Board, who over the last few months have worked so hard and spent so much time , trying to think of new ideas in which we can offer friendship to all the Members. In this difficult period.
May I wish you and all your families a peaceful Christmas season and a healthy, happy and prosperous 2021.
