March 2015 Meeting

Why bother to stay at home to watch the ark when we could nearly have had our own ark at our meeting.

How it rained, causing several people to wade through a foot of water, agitated by howling winds. It's good fun aquaplaning down blackpool prom in such weather.

Still our loyal members, some in wheelchairs managed to make the evening and arrived wet and windswept, to be greeted with a smile, by two polite door boys, the younger chenery clan, who also proved their engineering skills. Not many 6 year old's can understand the intricacies of assembling a music stand, but callum proved his ability to do so.

Michael with his easter buffet proved that like Mr Kipling his food was exceedingly good.

We were delighted to welcome Andy Whitehead who, as a first timer confidently sang, dirty old town and his own football creations. He is wanting, with Alans help to learn formby songs and styles, which will add to further performances.

Performances were varied, mostly formby, sometimes with different lyrics, but included dance rhythms, Kathy and Derek, and Lee, who like Morcambe and Wise was following us around.

Ian who, influenced by the weather, sang sea of heartbreak.

Jo confidently organised the concert, no doubt missing Marga Wo after 6 months of treatment is still unable to walk.

The raffle, with an easter theme, saw several happy people leaving clutching their easter eggs.

As Lee said "I love coming to this meeting as everyone is so friendly".

That just about sums us up
