Report from the Glenside News (October 2005) ...

'The August Garden Party Lunch at Peter and Angela Bowman's house and garden was throroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. Unfortunately I could not go due to a longstanding engagement, but I rushed home and changed at 5.30 ready to help clear up and found half the guests still there and hapily drinking and chatting until it became too cold at 8.30, so I joined them. Another success story!

The Dinner and Talk by Christopher Awdry at The Willoughby in September is filling nicely.

The Musical Evening and Quiz on October 14th in Castle Bytham Village Hall at 7.30pm is proving popular. The tickets are £5 for members and £6.50 for guests which includes food but bring your own wine if you wish. To book places by October 8th contact Penny Price on 01780 410239.

The Chilli Evening with Sid Kipper on Friday 11th November. The tickets are selling well but please note that the wrong telephone number was put in last months Glenside. The contact is Deidre Pawsey 01780 410936. There is a vegetarian alternative to the Chilli on request and again bring your own wine. The tickets are £8.50 for members and £10 for guests.

Two people have already offered to arrange events for the next programme and we are still attracting new members. Being sucha varied programme the events attract different people with the result that with numbers averaging between 20 and 30 everyone mixes well. The only criteria is that everyone should enjoy themselves and no one should be left standing on their own and it is working well.

Anyone wanting more details contact Vicki at the Post Office or Pat on 01780 410908.'

Report from the Glenside News (September 2005) ...

'Anything goes is still going from strength to strength with new members joining all the time. Remember that it does not matter how many events you attend, there is no pressure. You just have to remember to book yourself into the organiser by the given date. The only criteris is to enjoy yourself and make sure no one is left on their own. Friendliness is the key.

The last event was the Wine and Cheese at Holywell Hall by kind permission of Sally and Robert Gillespie. It was sad that Sally missed it as it was on the day of the London bombing and she was in town and could not get back. We had a lovely evening and the weather was kind, after rain earlier in the day, which enabled the guests to enjoy the gardens as well as the house. It was a great success.

The nest event is supper at The Willoughby, Little Bytham on September 21st and will include a talk. The cost is £12.50 including supper and numbers are limited so book early. The speaker is Christopher Awdrey whose father The Revd Awdrey created Thomas the Tank Engine, the title of the talk is "Railways with Father and other anecdotes". We had to replace the original speaker as he sadly died. For tickets apply to Anita Tarling on 01778 393683 before September 12th.

October 14th is "Pies, Peas and Pavlova" in Castle Bytham Village Hall. Come along and listen to the sounds of the Sixties with Phil Rylance, Abbey Road recording artist.
