Blueberry Muffins Newsletter – January 2019
"Should auld acquaintance be forgot and
never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne."
- Robert Burns, Auld Lang Syne
Saturday 5th January 10:00 am
As the Denton Lounge will be closed, we will meet for coffee at Munch Coffee Bar in the Royal Arcade
Sunday Lunch Club
Sunday 20th January 12:30 pm
Brunswick & Thorn Restaurant
As many of us were unable to make the December date, we are arranging a second visit in January. This newly opened Bistro in
Thorn Road offers a very tasty variety of treats for Sunday lunch
Please contact Lady Maria, Duchess Deux-Divorcé if you would like her to book a place for you
A word about bills for the lunch club: recently several ladies have paid their part of the communal bills separately and at different times. This makes it very difficult indeed for those ‘left behind’ to sort out the communal bill and work out which
items have and have not yet been settled. This is not fair and spoils our enjoyment of the event
From now on we must ask that no one pays until the whole amount is being paid. If anyone needs to pay their allocated share by card that is, of course, fine but it must be as part of the communal payment and not as a separate transaction. If you might need to leave early, please beg, borrow or ATM some cash and leave it ‘on the table’
If you come to the lunch club we will assume your agreement to this procedure Thank you
Pie & Mash Evening
Tuesday January 15th
Enjoy a delicious dinner from Turners Pies. We will choose from their wide variety of pies, both savoury and sweet and have a fun evening, courtesy of Queen Judy. Cost will be £10 per person. Please let Queen Judy know if you would like to take part and pay her the £10 by January 4th (coffee at The Munch) at the latest.
