New Members Coffee Morning – November 2014

A very successful New Members Coffee Morning was held on Wednesday November 26th at the Community Centre, Carrington Room.  About 40 new members attended as well as several committee members and group Leaders.  Members were able to socialize and talk to Group Leaders about their group’s activities.  Refreshments were served throughout the morning.

New Members’ Coffee Morning

Lively and Informative Meeting

A good gathering of new members enjoyed coffee and some festive refreshments in the company of group leaders and committee members. We had changed the format this year, with just a short introduction and no formal presentations, leaving members free to mingle and find out what our various groups have to offer.

 Positive Feedback

June Brazier from our Social Committee reported a good turnout and plenty of enquiries from  new members to the various group leaders. Those we spoke to were a friendly bunch who found the meeting very informative and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. June would like to thank all those who attended and especially all who helped with the refreshments as well as putting out tables and clearing away afterwards.
