Solway Regional Report February 2020

Introduction to our 20th year as a Region

Solway Regional Report 2020

It's now twenty years since our Region was formed back in 2000 and we are planning a number of events to celebrate. Including a re-creation of our first ever event, a Ride and Dine in the Pennines. Further details will be announce soon.

There was no monthly meeting held in January, but we did have a very well attended Winter Warmer at Thursby Hall, complete with a two course meal, quizzes, book exchange and a chance to have a leisurely chat in good company. Thank you to all who braved the weather to take part.

This year's Christmas Lunch at the Roundthorn Hotel attracted thirty five members and guests. The weather proved kind, cold but dry and frost free and with a dusting of snow on the hilltops, just to get us in the Christmas spirit.

By chance, lunch also coincided with Ken Jardine, one of our founder members, 70th Birthday. No birthday cake had been arranged, but the hotel staff presented Ken's cheese and crackers dessert, replete with the obligatory candle and a chorus of 'Happy Birthday'

Thanks go to Carolyn & Robin Heslop for their excellent organisation. Occasions like this don't just happen it takes a lot of time and effort to ensure we are all able to enjoy ourselves.
