    Dear ……………….

    Richard (Chief Host)
    Keith (Meet/Greet drinks)
    Dave (Sec)
    Heather
    Peggy
    Jane/Colin (Raffle)

    Thank you so much for all your efforts in organizing the 2012 ‘Social’ yesterday in Blockley. A great turnout once again.

    It all went off extremely well indeed, despite the English/June/ Summer weather trying it’s best to put the damper on things, and of course my trusty (rusty?) navigator advising a RIGHT turn out of the Crown Inn car park on departure.

    Kind regards,

    Nev/Terry Cooper
