Saturday 11th is another busy day as we have a team taking part in this year’s District Quiz Final in Ipswich in the afternoon. Then in the evening is our Valentine’s Barn Dance with live music from the Jasper Ceilidh Band in St. Osyth Village Hall. Let’s hope both are a big success.
After a busy meeting last night, it looks like a full Business Meeting on Wednesday will be “Full” with lots to go through and some busy events to come. Looking forward to as many members as possible being there.
