November 2016 Meeting

On 1st November the Wine Club held its Annual General Meeting which was well attended by 20 members.

The following officers and committee were re-elected to serve for another year.

Chairman - Keith Walton
Treasurer - Maureen Hoskins
Secretary/Publicity - Isobel Taylor,
General Committee - Heather Charman, Francis Dickinson, Suzanne Grady, Peter Grady,
Kent Sandiford, Barry Wilkins
Raffle Officers - Suzanne and Peter Grady.

Also, a programme for 2017 was agreed. This includes a New Year dinner at the Bletchingly Arms, wine-tastings, skittles and supper at the Limpsfield British Legion, an evening of pub games, a country ramble and a tipplers' stroll, a summer BBQ, joining a quiz night at the Station Pub, a cheese-tasting and a Christmas party. In the summer there will also be a visit to a vineyard or a brewery.

After the business of the evening members tackled a general knowledge quiz, the winning team being Mo, Chris and Francis.

The club has got room for new members, so we hope that our programme will appeal. It is NOT necessary to be knowledgeable about wine, nor is experience of home wine-making an essential qualification, although it would be of great interest to our members.

The last event of this year is our Christmas party, on Tuesday 6th December, 8.00 pm at the Christchurch Centre.
