Another successful Foundation Exam took place on Saturday 25th November when Charles, Adrian and Robbo passed their exam.  This result is, of course, subject to confirmation by the RSGB.  Les G1LQB was the main Instructor and Pam G4STO and Les were Invigilators.

Another successful Used Equipment Sale was held at the end of October with lots of bargains to be had.  We had our regular visitors from surrounding clubs and some from a little further afield – Hull, York and Barry to name just three.  Bob G7AVU was our auctioneer; he had help from Steve M5ZZZ and Jason G7KPM; Ian G4EVK and Terry G7JFI gladly received the money.  Pam G4STO cooked a few hotdogs and made teas and coffee.

The date for our April sale in 25th April 2018.

Fifteen of us enjoyed Cumberland, ‘Old English’ (not sure which county these were from) and Lincolnshire sausages as part of National Sausage Week.  Weather was inclement (rained all morning) so we retreated to the Village Hall.  Sorry about the quality of the photos.

Help was at hand, Jackie preparing the rolls for the sausages.

I suggested Haggis for our next event but a few noses turned up!  I’ve read somewhere “Don’t fear the haggis. Just think of it as a big, round sausage. That’s what it is anyway.”
