We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at our next lecture on the 1st February when Diana Lloyd will be talking about The Interiors of Jane Austin’s Heroines. For those of you who would like to learn more about it, there is a more detailed description of the lecture on our website than in the hand out. You can see this by scrolling down to the end of the lecture page.
On the 1st February, John Clark will be selling tickets for the trip to Dorset (24 – 27 September). This is a luxury tour and members will stay at the new Duchess of Cornwall Hotel in Poundbury which was recently opened by Prince Charles. The cost is £450.00 per person ( supplement for a single room ).
Also on the 1st, Rosemary Langman will be selling tickets for the tea party on the 22nd March. This will be an opportunity for members new to this area to meet other RLSDFAS members. More established members may like to come to meet/welcome some of the new/unknown faces whom they see in the foyer before our lectures. The tickets cost £10.00 each and the venue is at Binswood Audley, Binswood Ave, Leamington Spa CV32 5SF from three to five pm. If it proves to be popular, Rosemary and her sub group will consider another “social” event for the autumn. Many societies around the country organize one or two inexpensive social activities a year. For those who cannot attend the lecture, if you contact me, I shall pass your request for tickets on to the Rosemary.
Shortly I shall be sending out invitations to members who joined RLSDFAS after the start of the season to the Coffee Morning on the 17th March. You may wish to keep a space for this in your diary.
May I remind members that the National AGM on Wednesday 17th May in Birmingham is open to all members as are the various excursions the following day etc. You can find further details in the NADFAS Review and by following the link at the end of this update.
May I also remind you that the concert, which we sponsor and for which you can buy two tickets for the price of one, is on Wednesday 1st March and not on Friday 1st March. Details are on your programme card.
