Bonnie Scotland Tent of Paisley
The Bonnie Scotland Tent returned to the Tontine Hotel in Greenock for a Christmas meal in July! Grand Sheik Janice Hawton reports…
A lovely meal was the order of the day at our Christmas do in the Tontine Hotel. There might not have been turkey or beetroot, but what we did have was up to the Tontine’s usual excellent standards. There were enough raffle prizes for 2 each and a closely contested quiz was won by Kenny.
For their July meeting at the Tartan Rose in Paisley Janice reports having a “legal eagle evening with Night Owls, Scram and Going Bye-Bye on show. Our next meeting is on Thursday 25 August. Only 4 months until Christmas. That should give you a clue.”
Men ‘ War Tent of Colchester
Our next meeting is on 10 September and we are using the new venue, just over the river from Manningtree.
The layout in Brantham Village Hall looks ideal for our meetings/film shows and we are looking forward to being there and getting members' feedback.
We'll also be providing some refreshments in the form of tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits during the break.
