Santa Float – December 2023

Just before Christmas, members of Lichfield 41 Club, supported by some family and friends took the Santa Float out around Boley Park. The weather was kind and the planned route was fully completed. The funds have been banked to Lichfield Round Table. £557.19 was collected. We look forward to the distribution over the next couple of months.

🎅 Festive Greetings from Chairman Colin – Happy Christmas Everyone!!🎄

Shelagh and I wish you and your families a Very Merry Christmas** and Best Wishes for the New Year.

We will not be sending out physical cards this year, instead we will be making a donation to St Giles Hospice.

As you can see from the attached photograph, the festivities started early at our Christmas Meeting on the 6th December at Whittington Heath Golf Club.

We hope that you all have a fantastic time over the festive period.

Very Best Wishes,  

Colin and Shelagh.

**If you liked that one, you’ll love this one. RIP

22nd December Santa’s Sleigh Run – Boley Park / Roman Way Route – Update

To those of you coming out with the Santa’s Sleigh please note the following:

Meeting point: Car Park by the Co-op Supermarket Boley Park.

Time: 6pm with the aim that the float will start the route at 6:15pm latest.

We currently have 10 members who have offered their assistance on the night but the number of collectors reduce to 7 when the Driver, Santa and Team Leader are accounted for.  If you find that you are free on the evening of the 22nd December then please send Colin John an email or text letting him know that you will be there on the night to help.

Thank you

Many thanks

Chairman Colin “Rudolf” John

Don’t forget: all the Santa routes can be followed here. Our run is found here.

Chairman’s Remarks – Nov 2023

Read Chairman Colin “Sharp Dressed Man” John’s latest remembrance missive and relive the memory of soup and custard (not at the same event, not in the same bowl). Click here to read his prose.

And talking of Sharp Dressed Men, who remembers ZZ Top’s classic hit? Get rocking with the bearded ones here. The video is reminiscent of every Ladies Lunch and Night we’ve been to. Which reminds me…

Santa run – update

Two bits of news here.

Firstly, we’ve been allocated our own run: Friday 22nd December for the Boley Park / Roman Way route. Our very esteemed VC has offered to be the Driver on the night – so thank you very much Roger. More details will follow in due course, but if you can help out it will be much appreciated. Some of you were kind enough to put your names down earlier this year – I will be taking any more names at the Xmas meeting next week, so please check your diaries and sign up if possible.

Secondly, we’ve had a message from Viv Wyss, Secretary of Lichfield Tangles and Amy Baden, Chair of Lichfield Ladies Circle. Ladies Circle and Tangles have been allocated Fradley, which is a massive route, on Sunday 3rd December. They would really appreciate any support from our Club and Tangent  if anyone can help between 3-6pm or 6-9pm. This is next weekend – detailed timings to be confirmed. 

The afternoon slot is particularly in need at the moment, as many people have things on during the day, but any help on either slot is welcome as they may be able to juggle people around. Please let Viv know as soon as possible if you can help, on lichfieldtangles@gmail.com

Many thanks

Chairman Colin “Call me Santa” John
