|Summary||The Bramhall U3A Dining Group meet for a restaurant meal once a month alternating between Tuesday one month, Wednesday the next. It was decided to have an early dinner at local venues during the Winter, then when the better weather and lighter evenings arrive, we will venture further afield and possibly do lunch or afternoon tea.|
|Venue||Local restaurants. 3rd week of the month|
|Contact||Vera Moore/Jan Boys - Telephone details are in the paper copy of the newsletter|
|firstname.lastname@example.org with 'U3A Dining Enquiry' as the subject|
There are 63 members of this group. Our first venture was to Ego’s in Bramhall where 23 members of the group enjoyed good food and company. Since then we have been to Wings, Pinewood Hotel, Bridge Hotel & Staneylands.
The first outings have been arranged by the two group leaders but it is envisaged that all members of the group will take a turn at organising a group meal at a venue of their choice, rather than always leave it to the same people.
December 2018 Report: View
Jan Boys and Vera Moore continue to run the group, Jan making initial contacts with restaurants and Vera sending out information, mainly by email, and also collecting in bookings and making payment to restaurants Much of the administration relies upon the use of emails. We are grateful to Alaister Mcrae who is keeping a back-up of email addresses - about 80 in 2 groups - so quite a task. A few people continue to receive hard copies of the information.
We hold meetings on alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays each month except August and December, usually in the evenings. This year we did try out lunch meetings in January and February at the March Hare & the Bubble Room. There was a slightly different group of people attending, some regulars, but others who preferred to go out during the day. It was good to see these. We shall probably try this again.
We visited 9 different venues. Tang's Chinese Restaurant and the Farmer's Arms in Poynton continue to be popular and we were impressed by the quality of service and food which we received at the Wycliffe Villa in Edgeley, so that will be on our list again next year. An average of about 23 members attend. Suggestions for new venues are always welcome.
Of course the social element of the evenings is very important. There is always a pleasant atmosphere and a warm welcome is extended to new faces.
