Happy New Year Everyone – Wishing all of you a year of good health and happiness! 2019 is the year of the Pig and in Chinese horoscope this is a good year to make money and invest.
Our New Year’s Eve Party at the Harte & Garter Hotel was an amazing success. There were lots of new faces, and some people who came to our last party came again this year which was great and not forgetting our loyal members too. The music on the night was fabulous – thanks to our DJ Ken. His repertoire of songs kept the dance floor filled most of the night. Then at midnight we had the usual traditional welcoming in the New Year Songs and everyone got involved which was fantastic. It was so good to see people enjoying themselves and getting involved in the festivities, what a wonderful time we had.
The photo booth was a big hit; funny and happy memories were taken home for keeps, some pictures will be on the website soon. There were queues throughout the night and the props provided added gaiety and playfulness to the snapshots taken. It was hilarious and much enjoyed.
This year we have three new venues for you to try out and give us your feedback.
On Friday, 18th January there are two launch parties one in Essex at The Thurrock Hotel, Ship Lane, Aveley, Essex RM19 1YN. This is a lovely venue with a good size dance floor and doors leading out onto the terrace. Great for summer nights or perhaps you might meet somebody and want to get to know them where you can chat and get away from the music.
The other new venue is in Teddington, The Teddington Constitutional Club, 5 Stanley Road, Teddington TW11 8TP. Here, there is a large bar just outside the function room and the atmosphere is very warm and friendly. The room has a massive dance floor so you won’t be restricted to show your dance moves.
Then in February we have another venue, some of our members may remember this one. We have been here before, several years ago. It’s at the Copthorne Hotel in the Royal Suite, in Slough/Windsor, on Cippenham Lane, Slough, Berks SL1 2YE. We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day at our launch party on Saturday, 16th February so come prepared to maybe get lucky and join in our ice-breaker activity (optional). We are having a raffle with cash prizes, chocolate hearts on arrival, a photo booth, clairvoyant in attendance in a private room and party novelties. See you there!
