Newsletter Issue 75

Hello again,

Sadly, the first thing I have to report is the death of Alan Woodbridge after a short illness. He was one of the founder members of our club when it was housed in The Domes. He was a good bowler who ran The Musketeers, was a well-respected businessman and served in World War 2.

Our thoughts are with his family.

Whilst on the subject of The Domes, I read this week that they were considered unsightly by the local residents and have now been deflated in preparation for a climbing centre to be built.

Thankfully, there were only a few cancellations for Saturday’s quiz. Another good night was enjoyed by everyone attending. The next one will be held on 15th January 2022, restrictions permitting, of course. Your quizmaster will be Howard accompanied by me. We’re standing in for Barrie and Anne while Barrie recuperates from his recent surgery. It’s a slow process but he’s getting stronger. I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing him well.

Thank you to all those who donated gifts to the Christmas raffle and to those who bought tickets. We made £254.00. Thank you again.

A big “thank you“ to our relatively new member, Ian (Noddy) Holder who’s done a considerable amount of electrical work for us. It’s very much
appreciated.

At the time of writing, Christmas is going ahead, thank goodness. Another piece of good news in our paper today was that there is now evidence that “omicron” is indeed proving to be milder than “delta” as is the case in South Africa.

Let’s look on the bright side.

For now, though, the current rules mentioned in last week’s newsletter must be followed.

I wish you all a very happy Christmas and hope to see you all very soon, fit and healthy.

Take care. 
Linda.
Linda Watkin-Jones.
Director (PR & Marketing)

Really sorry to learn about Alan Woodbridge’s passing. He was a lovely bowler and a real gentleman and he took me under his wing when I first joined Midglos and I played with him in the Musketeers. Thoughts are with his family . Rona ☹️
