BMGOC Christmas Meal, Bridge Inn, Acle
There was a great turnout of 50 members for the club’s Christmas dinner at the Bridge Inn at the beginning of December. The food, as ever, was excellent and served very efficiently, especially when you consider the number of members eating.
We also celebrated Ray’s birthday, who was as generous as ever by treating everyone to a glass of Prosecco – happy birthday Ray!
Members were also very generous donating to Carol and Clive’s chosen charity in lieu of sending Christmas cards – please see the separate item in this newsletter.
Many thanks go to David for organising the evening and the staff at the Bridge Inn for looking after us so well.
Christmas Party Night, Briarfields Hotel, Titchwell
A small group of members continued the Christmas celebrations after the festivities at the Bridge Inn with a party night at the Briarfields Hotel in Titchwell. The day started off meeting at Bawdeswell Garden Centre for brunch before driving in convoy up to the hotel which is situated on the North Norfolk coast. The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing with a drink or three before the dinner and party in the evening.
After a lovely breakfast the next morning several of the members went for a brisk walk in the winter sunshine along to the RSPB reserve situated close to the hotel before returning for a hot drink and mince pie to warm up before making their way home.
Many thanks go to David for organising the weekend

On the 1st December nine members of the club went to see a show that My Rock Choir were performing in.
We all enjoyed this and thought the children were very good.
This note is to say thank you for the £100 donation which the club gave me to pass on to Graham, who is the choir teacher.
A big thank you.
