Club welcomes prospective new members. 
40 members, guests and prospective members on 25th November, enjoyed the Club and Membership Night at Orsett Hall.  This was the night to show prospective members what the Club was all about and members relished the opportunity.  The Gold Room looked beautiful for the evening, which started started with drinks and a general getting to know each other and was followed by an entertaining introduction by the President, Adrian Alsop and then with three amusing presentations on the clubs activity - Alan Peaford on the social side of the club, Kevin Watkins on International and the Tri-Partite with our associated Dutch and German Clubs and Iain Ramsay on our fundraising and Christmas concert, sleigh and collection activities.  You could feel the tension when Iain revealed a picture of the new sleigh - ahhhhhh, only to deny us with a picture of it covered by a sheet - ohhhhh.   The buffet was excellent followed by a superb demonstration from our Guest Speaker from St Johns Ambulance on how a defibrillator works.  Holly in full SJA para medic gear with a defibrillator and dummy held us all spellbound with the demonstration and was then bombarded with questions from the audience.  Speed is of the essence with any heart attack situation and we all went away with potentially lifesaving knowledge.  A Club donation to SJA was presented by Ray Smallcombe together with a vote of thanks.  The evening finished at around 10.00pm with closing remarks from the President.  After the evening the President said: "The evening was a great success and would hopefully generate new members to the club.
