There were 88 members attending the November luncheon, another solid attendance figure, checking our records, this year has been the best, with more people coming than we were used to.
Our speaker this month was Dave Robertson from the Citizens Advice Bureau, and what a good presentation he gave us, some really useful information about what is free for us to use. This includes getting a Justice of the Peace to sign documents, to fifteen free minutes with a solicitor. Not to mention how to go about getting purchasing problems sorted, the difference between an Estimate, and a Quote. Sounds like we need to get quotes every time. Just click here for the website for more information.
The Christmas Dinner has been well supported, and I do understand that some of our older members are unable to drive at night. The new venue of Southwards is a step up in class for us, and I am certain everyone will enjoy their evening. I remember when we first used the Golf Club as a venue, there was a certain amount of trepidation, but it turned out really well. The forced change to Southwards will also be a good move, it is advertised as one of the best venues in the district. It is also BYO, and everyone will receive an arrival drink, and another surprise during the evening. We also have live entertainment, so just sit back, relax and enjoy the occasion.
The trip to the Coromandel left the Kapiti Club this morning, and we wish them well, and know that they will all enjoy a good week. To all the members who will not be at the Christmas Dinner,the Committee wish you a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
