Firstly welcome to our new members, Gillian and Mary, and we hope you had a good evening with us. Unfortunately Jo couldn’t make it this evening due to illness and we hope she gets well soon.
I bet you didn’t think we had that many Beatles' tunes in the library. Well done Brian for giving us a full evening from the Fab Four, excellent stuff. Thanks to Diane for doing the initial scrolling, great work and then it all went downhill when Eric took over the driving, but thanks to him anyway. :-)

This Thursday it’s Diane and Dave’s night at The Crown, New Springs.
The next meeting is the last opportunity for members to turn up and register their continued membership interest. Don’t worry, we know about George Kesterton and Ken Docherty, not being able to make it because they are in foreign parts, but anyone else needs to let us know why they are not able to make it during April, or face having their membership relinquished.
We were a little worried that the lack of members early on would spoil the evening, but after Diane had taken the register, you were treated to a really good night, with the usual selection of great tunes from Graham including quite a number of new ones. Tonight after a start by Graham K, Graham P was ably assisted by Diane.
Thanks to this week’s Ashes – Brian on drums, Eddie on harmonica and special thanks to John, stepping in on bass. Thanks to those who lead on some of the songs – Eddie; Mark; Trevor; Carole; Ernie. The ladies Anne; Elaine; Carole; Jackie; Donna, Margo and Eunice sang about Venus and Never Falling In Love Again. An excellent Eddee and Donnata Saved Their Love for us. Margo and Anne gave us Hallelujah, I Love Him So, and Brian sang Marty Robbins’ El Paso.
Betty; Jackie; Carole; Donna; Eunice; Anne and Elaine sang Mamma Mia, and Margo and Trevor Were Making Eyes at each other. Steve (Rolfie) Gilmour was there Tying His Kangaroo Down, Sport.
All great stuff, and a very good STARTIME, thanks to
Next week it’s the turn of Steve Gilmour and Trevor Gwynn, set list later.

Please note that this will be our second AGM, the notice having been sent out earlier. No nominations or resolutions have to date been received, so hopefully the meeting will take only a short time. We have tabled a discussion and vote regarding a subscription fee for the coming year. The Committee have recommended that no subscription should be made as Club funds are very healthy at present.
