Back to Back Weekends of Fun

Dear Area 14

Stoke Rochford HallWe’ve just come off of two great weekends in a row of great Tabling. First of all we had the Grantham 60th Charter at Stoke Rochford Hall. What a venue and fellowship. Under the presiding Table Chairman John Whaler the whole night went well with great support from Area 14.

They had a brilliant guest speaker Peter Wheeler, former Leicester Tigers and England Rugby Union player. What with lollipops and excellent dining the whole night was a brilliant success.

Then at the weekend just gone Beeston Round Table held their 54th charter at Beeston Fields Gold Club (apparently not Risley Hall). Their Welsh chairman Marcus Jones was well and truly on the front foot when talking about the recent Rugby world cup. They had also a sporting hero on hand for their speech line up, but after I gave my speech they had back up of John McGovern (former Nottingham Forest Captain and European champion) – what a great speaker.

At the evening there was a presentation to Derby Mountain Rescue of £1700, partially raised through the abseil down Derby Cathedral and from the raffle. Beeston also had an auction raising funds for Nottingham Hospice.

So what are in the next round of area events?

Saturday 12th November – Leicester Ladies Night
Thursday 17th November – Bingham & District Charter Night
Friday 18th November – Children in Need
Saturday 19th November – Loughborough Ladies Night
Saturday 3rd December – Long Eaton Ladies Circle Winter Ball

Lastly I would like to politely remind Tables of the Swag rules. Raffle / auction prizes along with regalia and venue property are not there to be swagged. Trophys, banners, etc are the items that are there to be smuggled out of joint area events.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon,

Yours in Table
Johnny Mad Dog MacManley
