De La Salle - A weekly update on news and events

Hi there

I am back with another short updates for you.

First of all let me tell you that some of the Bungalow Band players are not available for practice tonight so no one will be up at the club – the bar will be closed

If you come up to the club regularly you will have noticed that some of the deeper potholes on Beauchief Drive have been filled. I emailed a complaint to the highways department this Monday about the state of the road - and repairs were done on Tuesday morning! Although this was done very quickly it is not really solving the problem as we all know more potholes will open up. In the same email I asked when they would be resurfacing but was not given an answer. Maybe if anyone else has the time or inclination to enquire it might make the highways department aware that the road is used a lot and something should be done. We can always hope!

In September Jay Daniels is holding another Poetry evening. If you enjoy reading or listening to poetry then Tuesday 10th September is a date for you to remember. Jay would love to see all lovers of poetry up at the club from 7.30pm that night. Anyone who wants to, would be welcome to recite their favourite poem(s) - or read from a script. They will have the opportunity to say a little bit about the poem and what it means to them. There will possibly, be a time limit of about 10 minutes for each person taking part, which means there will be time for everyone. You don’t have to take part to come along. If you enjoy listening to poetry then this is an evening for you. There is no entrance fee. Anyone interested please contact Jay directly as she will need to know what poem(s) you wish to read, (if indeed you wish to read at all). This will prevent repetition and there will be a ‘first come first served rule ….. so there are not ten versions of ‘If’!!

The bar will also be open all evening (from 7pm) so you can wet your whistles. This event proved to be very popular when it was first held in April so why not go along and see what it is all about?

I know October is a long way off but at the end of that month we have our annual Autumn Fair. As usual we will be relying on you all to donate goods. Can you start thinking about any fancy goods you may have laying around. Maybe unused presents etc? We will be only too happy to receive them. Also needed will be bottles of anything for the tombola stall. If you really need to pass them to us now then please contact me but if you can wait until the end of September I will put a box out in the club porch for you to put items in.

Also coming up in the autumn will be the Radio Play – this year performed on 2 nights so more of you can get to see it. This will be on Fri 8th and Sat 9th November.

 In December the Bungalow Band will be back with ‘Elvis meets the Blues Brothers’. This will be on Saturday 14th December and will be a night of entertainment you will not want to miss.

All those events are coming up over the next few months

In the meantime the regular monthly events will continue.

Paul will by hosting another of his quiz evenings next Wednesday at 8.30pm and would love to see lots of people there testing their knowledge.

Remember there is NO COFFEE MORNING this month but it will be back in September.

A request:  A bottle of wine was left in a bottle bag in the club house after the U3A meeting on Monday morning this week. Has anyone seen it or put it somewhere or taken it home to keep safe? If you know it’s whereabouts please contact me.

Last but not least – Sam and Cassie Wainwright welcomed a lovely little girl, Amelia Grace, into the world this week. A beautiful daughter and granddaughter (not that I am biased) Congratulations to them.
