Club members end the year with Just a Minute

The second half of the last meeting in 2018 saw our members wind down with a friendly competition based on Just a Minute. Members had to speak for 60 seconds without hesitation, repetition or deviation from the subject which were all based around popular TV programmes.

Our thanks to Andrew for organising and chairing the competition which ensured members left the meeting full of seasonal cheer!

Club Members Jeremy, David and Lloyd compete in one of the rounds.

One of our new members, Kevan, has already had great success.

As well as receiving his ASC manual from our Education Director Phil, Kevan also won the Novel competition – this was only his third CSC meeting!

Many congratulations Kevan and we wish you every success in the District Novel competition.

The second meeting is on Thursday 24th May. This will be the club’s AGM.

Hope to see you at one or both of these!
