Thanksgiving service planning & Bolsover's Charter 24th April

Gail and I had a meeting this morning at All Saints Church in Ripley, with Sue Hall the Musical Director of the Inner Wheel Choir and officials of the church to finalise the details for our Thanksgiving Service.  This is due to be held in the church on Sunday, 16th June commencing at 2.30pm.

The meeting went very well and the planning is now more or less complete.

The evening was a much more interesting event altogether.  Gail and I attended the Charter celebratiuons of the Rotary Club of Bolsover, held at their normal meeting place, The Ringwood Hall Hotel at Brimington near Chesterfield.   The event was publiciused as not formal - "Wear something smart and bright" were the instriuctions that went out from President Leigh Holland.

The theme for the evening was Indian, with Indian food, an Indian disco and Indian dancers.

The relaxed attitude was absolutely great and formalities were kept to a minimum.

After the meal and the various toasts the Indian dancers gave a demonstration dance befor "inviting" - I think inviting was the word - members of the audience to join them.   Needless to say I was dragged up onto the stage with much encouragement from Assistant Governor John Shipman - no slouch in the Indian Dancing Stakes.  A few photos show the nature of the evening.
