De La Salle - A weekly update on news and events

Hi there!

Are you looking forward to a sunny Easter weekend? Hopefully you will all see some sun and be able to get out and about over the bank holiday weekend. We will be away but before we go here are the latest bits of information for you all.

We had a great night being entertained by PLUK last Friday evening – so good to see so many there.

Tuesday night this week was the first of many (hopefully) poetry evenings. Thank you to Jay Daniels, who organized it, and also to all who came along to either read, recite or listen to a poem or two. It was a lovely evening.

Next week is a busy week up at DLS

David Hague’s will be giving an illustrated talk on Wednesday 24th April at 2pm. The slide show this month will be exploring Cornwall from Falmouth by bus, train ferry and foot. Seaside, countryside, picturesque villages and Poldark country are all on the itinerary. Everyone invited to come up to listen and watch.

We have the club AGM next Thursday (25th) at 8pm. If you are going to be unable to make it then please send your apologies through to Barbara O’Callaghan - mbocall@live.co.uk

Also next week is the DLS Big Quiz. This will take place on Saturday 27th at 7.30pmThis is now fully booked up – please do not turn up on the night unless you are booked in. For those that are going, a Ploughman’s supper is included in the price of £6 per head. Chris will be collecting the money on the night.

I have now opened a booking list for our first Murder Mystery evening on Friday 17th May at 7.30pm.  If you would like to turn detective for the evening then please come along and see if you can solve the murder mystery. You can work in teams of up to 5 people or by yourself. Food is included in the price of £6 per person. You must book for this event as we need to know how many to cater for. Drop me a line if you are interested.

I also have a booking list open for ‘Scuppered’ who are returning to play for you on Friday 24th May at 8.15pm. This is a pay on the door event so you don’t have to book in - it is just helpful for us to know roughly how many people to expect.  This is a very popular band (the finest folk group to come out of Coal Aston) and we are looking forward to welcoming them back to DLS. Let be know if you are interested.

We have had a break in up at Beauchief. The groundsman’s shed and one of the big blue containers used by archery have been broken into and some equipment stolen. If anyone noticed anything suspicious between Monday evening and Wednesday morning please drop me a line. Apparently there has also been some break-ins on the allotments on Beauchief Drive. I don’t know if these are related at all but any info from anyone about anything to do with these burglaries would be useful and gratefully received.

The cricket season starts this Saturday so beware of low flying cricket balls if you are having a wander around the grounds. There will also be matches on Wednesday evenings starting at 6.15pm. If you fancy wandering up and supporting the club team they are always grateful to have spectators.
