Chairmans remarks – December 23

December has just flown by and I can’t believe that it is now January 2024. So, the first thing that I want to do is to wish you – A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!

I hope that you have all enjoyed the festive season and are now looking forward to the year ahead. Let us hope that the world becomes a more peaceful place in 2024.
Our Club has been very active in December with the formal Christmas meeting on 6th December being very well attended. Many thanks to the John and Andrew for organising the meal and finding the funds for the wine on the tables which I am sure contributed to the festive spirit that prevailed at the meeting. This meeting was followed 2 weeks later with an informal at BOD – which continues to be a very popular venue at lunch time.

As you will probably be aware from the recent posts on our web site, just before Christmas we took out the Santa’s sleigh and collected over £500 on the night which was a tremendous achievement. A big THANK YOU to the residents who live on the Boley Park / Roman Way route for their generosity and for coming out of their homes to see Santa and to cheer on his merry helpers. Many thanks also to all of you and to family members and friends who were able to help on the night. It is great that our Club, Lichfield 41 Club continues to support Lichfield Round Table 250 with this major annual fund-raising event. Long may it continue.
