This simple and free project is designed to help save lives in the event of a medical emergency.
Over the next couple of days 10 of us are off to our East Anglian Convention in Peterborough. Should be a super weekend of Fun and Fellowship whilst having the chance to debate important issues. Looking forward to meeting our friends from other clubs around East Anglia.
Last week we spent two days collecting in Morrison’s Store at Waterglade Retail Park in Clacton on Sea and raised a magnificent £800. Well Done Team.
Our next Meeting is tomorrow night and it is time for our members to nominate the officers they wish to be heading up the Club in the coming year from 1st July. Be interesting to see how things pan out.

Provided a Quiz Night last night for Clacton Carnival Association. 20 Teams and £446 raised so a very good night. Well Done the Team!
Last Saturday’s Barn Dance was very busy with over 80 attending and dancing to live music from The Jasper Ceilidh Band. Total raised subject to the Treasurer’s usual scrutiny was £391 – not to forget the very important 28 pence.
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.

Good extra social gathering with a Bowling Breakfast at Clacton Pavilion Bowl. The winner was Jean Cross, wife of Lion John Cross, with 131 having bowled a Turkey with her last three bowls.
