29 Jan: Bernice Deller - Celebrating Jan Heine 

One of our life members has a special birthday today so we are combining the new year pot luck dinner with a birthday celebration and a cake. Come along at 6.30pm and bring your pot luck dish and whatever you fancy drinking, a plate and bowl, some utensils and a glass. Let's keep the workload for the social committee to a minimum and bring along something to put your dirty dishes in and take them home. We will also show a few photos.
