The first Coffee Morning of 2022

The date for our next regular coffee morning should be the 1st January 2022.

NEWSLETTER TO MEMBERS DECEMBER 2021

Annual Subscription

No doubt Members are aware that last year, bearing in mind that there was likely to be a lack of activity due to the effects of the corona virus, it was decided not to impose a subscription charge. However, in a spirit of optimism, the committee have decided to reinstate the annual subscription for this current year. It will remain at a modest £5. and will enable us to pay our annual Liability Insurance Premium without dipping into our reserves. It will also allow us to update our Membership List always accepting that, sadly, some may not wish to continue their membership. Those New Members who joined us last year and paid an initial membership fee will not be expected to pay a further subscription for this current year. Subscriptions can be sent to Treasurer John Merritt at 10 Shelley Avenue, Clevedon, BS216EZ or alternatively those using Online Banking. account details are Lloyds Bank; Sort Code30-18-88; account number 35368460. Please ensure you insert your name(s) in the reference section.

Can you help host some of our Ettlingen friends in May?

This year Clevedon Twinning Association are celebrating 40 years of twinning friendship with Ettlingen in Germany.   Ettlingen is sending a group of ‘runners’ to Clevedon on 26th May 2020, to deliver an ‘invitation’ for Clevedon town to visit Ettlingen, who are organising the 40 year celebrations in October 2020.

We are looking for local people to get involved with the visit, by welcoming the Ettlingen ‘runners’ when they arrive in May, along with our association, and we need to host ‘runners’ during their visit.

If you have a spare bedroom and would be willing to host some of our Ettlingen friends for a few nights in May, or you want to know more about the plans for the anniversary celebrations, please get in touch with Emma at Clevedon Twinning Association on 01275 343918, visit our Facebook page, or website, or come along to our next coffee morning at The Limehouse on Hill Road, on the first Saturday of the month to find out more and meet with members.

Hosting is a great opportunity to make friends and have fun with our twinning towns.  We hope more people of Clevedon will want to get involved, especially during this anniversary year.  Please get in touch if you are interested.
