Last December 13 members attended the Christmas lunch. We decided to change the venue from last year and went to the Via Fossa on Canal Street, Nottingham. However, this was not a success as our numbers were reduced. The meal was very good and all who attended enjoyed the lunch.

We held our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 23rd January and 29 members attended. We were given a talk on recycling by Lesley Taylor from Veolia. Lesley gave us a quiz which consisted of 36 pictures of various items which you had to say if the article could be recycled or went in the general waste. It was all good fun and we all learned a lot.
