Basildon Charter Night 2016

Basildon's 56th Charter Night

Friendship echoed in an Aria

On 18th November several members attended Basildon's 56th Charter Night held at Langdon Hills Golf and Country Club.

We were represented by President Mike, Michael and Sue Ginn, Roger and Sarah Kettle and Margaret and myself and were given the usual warm reception from our good friends.

President Kevin Howard welcomed us and gave a short address after an enjoyable three-course meal. President Mike, in humourous vein, proposed the toast to the host club and president Kevin proposed the Guests with a response by Sue Lovey from the Inner Wheel Club of Basildon. A collection in aid of Children in Need raised over £200.

Entertainment during and after the meal was provided by Sarah (not Roger's Sarah!). She performed songs by Abba and Vera Lynn amongst others and told us she had been classically trained – and demonstrated her prowess with a superb aria performance, the highlight of the evening for me.
