Tuesday 9th January – first meeting of 2018
Happy New Year to all. Today our first meeting of the new year was at The Greyhound in Bromley to plan the weeks ahead – so the first of our A.G.M.s for 2018!
It was a breakfast meeting so once we were all together we ordered for food and drink. The drink turned out to be a bit of a mission. The Greyhound is a Wetherspoon’s pub and have installed a machine for all hot drinks that is operated by customers. This was quite a challenge not only for us but other customers which was hilarious and amounted to quite a lot of coffee flowing everywhere! Luckily no one was hurt and no harm done. Once paid for you can refill your cup as many times as you like for the cost of £1.20. We all agreed that was such great value. This gave me the idea to compare prices at our many coffee stops and see at the end of the year which comes out the best!
The food was served very quickly and enjoyed by us all. We had a good old natter about our Christmas and New Year activities and got down to the business of the day. We always seem to come up with some good ideas as to where to go and what to do. Amongst our planned visits we have booked a visit to the Poppy factory where the British Legion make all the poppies, Wildlife Photographic Exhibition, Post Office Museum, a couple of visits to Victoria and Albert Museum for some special exhibitions and Roman Ruins. Dates planned until mid March and all dates are subject to be change!!
After a very pleasant and productive morning we went our separate ways home and of course a visit to the shops couldn’t be missed!!
