Chairmans Report 2016Posted by - Chairman on 20/02/2017
The Southend and District Veterans had an excellent year in 2016 with varied monthly meetings and went on outings, holidays and luncheons.
At the monthly meetings we had visits from Peter Jones the Author, Ray Spillar an entertainer and Shirley Perkins a flower arranger. Clare Harvey talked about her family and life on “Joscelyne Beach”.
The club went on two holidays, In April they went to Moorecombe and to “Potters leisure Complex” in Suffolk in September and are returning again in May this year .
They went on several day trips, Windsor, Camden Lock and boat trip, Brighton and the Chatham Variety show.
The members also went to the “Arlington Rooms” for their New Year lunch, Summer luncheon at “Affinity” and afternoon tea at “Maison Noir”.
Theatre trips were also arranged and last year went to see “Motown” in London.
This year at our Christmas party, our own members Colin and Marion Pattrick arrived as Father Christmas and his Elf, then entertained us with games etc.
