Once a month a group of men enjoy a nice lunch, in convivial surroundings, in the company of like-minded chaps at our lunch club. We choose to come together for social reasons, so why not join us?We meet on the second Thursday in the month, for a simple lunch. For some of these meetings we have a speaker; three are social functions when we include our lady guests; and the others are for members’ social interaction.Past speakers have included subjects as varied as Pub signs of Worcestershire, Bess of Hardwick, Agincourt1415, and violin making. Sometimes members give a talk on a subject of interest of which they have knowledge. Some talks are accompanied by photographs.We invite the ladies to our Spring, Summer and Christmas luncheons.The club arranges some additional visits each year. These usually include a pub luncheon, as well as a visit to a place of interest – recent visits have been made to The Elgar Birthplace, The international Eisteddfod in Llangollen, The Red House Glass Cone, and the Morgan Car Factory.We have a simple philosophy, which is to come together to enjoy ourselves and to operate the club with a minimum of fuss. There is an annual fee. The cost of the monthly lunch, social occasions and extra trips are additional to the annual fee.Purely as a guide, the current annual fee was £12, and the lunch costs are £19.50 for 2 courses and tea/coffee. We currently meet at Hogarths Stone Manor Hotel, Stone, Nr Kidderminster, usually at 1230 for 1300.Interested? Get in touch with the secretary David Finlow on 01562 731 459 or by e.mail on firstname.lastname@example.org more information and to “try us” out one lunch.

Our Chairman Malcolm Brewer opened our AGM by welcoming everyone, particularly our six new members.Angela and her husband Mark Edwards gave us a talk and slide show about their garden, in particular about their new raised vegetable beds. Mark had made the most of the available space by designing slightly irregular beds, which were divided into sections to enable crop rotation by Angela. The beds were filled with commercial top soil and homemade compost is added whenever available. Mark also made two sturdy compost bins, plus plant supports and trellises.Secretary Olive Mason announced the new programme of events. She asked if one of the members of the Club can give a short talk at the next AGM. The printed programmes will hopefully be available at the March meeting.As a reminder, our meetings take place on the second Wednesday of the month at Chaddesley Corbett Village Hall, 7.30 for 8.00 pm.
