|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 2017 Report: View
In January 2017, Jan Boys and Vera Moore took over this group from Joy Armstrong and Janet
McMurray, who had developed very good procedures. The most difficult part of the job was the transfer
of 80 email addresses onto the computer, with emails being circulated each month. We also have 10-
12 members who receive postal copies.
We held meetings every month except April and August. Between 20 and 30 members attend and we have visited 8 different venues. Each has its own special atmosphere and menu, with all having had the general approval of our group. The meeting at Tangs in Cheadle Hulme was much enjoyed - judging by the sound of laughter. The visit to Davenport Golf Course, where we overlooked the beautiful green course on a pleasant summer evening was very special too.
There is a very friendly atmosphere, and all seem to be enjoying the evenings. There is a core of regulars and usually some new faces too. Recommendations for good restaurant, not too expensive or too far away, are always welcome. Currently we have been asking for views about holding a few at lunchtime - particularly in the winter - and this had much support from regular members. We plan to try this out in January and February 2018.
