Note from the editor

It’s a very slim newsletter this month (hurrah! I hear you cry) as we didn’t go very far in October. However, it includes Jill’s notes from the last club night and a couple of menus for the Christmas meal and the New Year’s Day run. If anyone would like to volunteer organising a run out for Sunday lunch over the next few months please let David know. The route doesn’t have to be very complicated or have Heritage Run type notes and we can print off any instructions that are produced.

October Club Night, Bridge Inn, Acle

notes by Jill Smith

The October club night saw a return to The Bridge Inn at Acle with 38 members turning up.

Please let David have your menu choices for the Christmas club night meal (on 5th December) before 17th November.

The New Year’s Day Run will be to the Old Ram at Tivetshall. Please let David have your menu choices by 12th December. The usual venue, The Butchers Arms, closed last Sunday.

The November club night will include a quiz night, kindly organised by Carol.

Jenny had the latest info in respect of the sponsorship for guide dogs. The club is still sponsoring Alfie and Hattie but Fifi has now finished her training.

Please let David know if you have any ideas for a Sunday lunch run.
