Once again it was time to look back at what we had done during the year, and look forward to next year, in our Annual General Meeting.
Our chairman, Helen, summed up the year in her report
Oxford Phab Club 2018
Another year has passed, and I can’t believe I am already writing another annual report.
Friday nights filled with fun activities. We have had sports nights doing Boccia, hockey and Zumba. Food nights including pancakes and noodle night, and of course our very own Christmas dinner which was cooked by member and a few friends of Phab. This was really successful as it was a lot more inclusive and we had a lot more room to move around and mingle, which was lovely. We have had a number of arts and crafts nights, had quiz nights, film nights, bingo nights, beetle and we even had a Connect 4 competition night. We have also been invited to many events in the Wesley Memorial Church including the folk festival and the new years party as well as helping raise money for the Open Doors project by helping sell refreshments.
Out and about we had a meal at Oxy, went to a Halloween disco with our friends at Banbury Phab. We went to see Mamma Mia, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Band at the theatre, we took part in two Zumba Fundraisers, went to Donnington Social Club, have been bowling a few times, went to a barbecue at the home of Simon and Sarah. We went to the annual garden party fundraiser this summer.
Last year some of our members went to the South East Phab Fun Weekend back in November last year. We also went back to Avon Tyrell in the New Forest in July. Members got to have a go at many activities including archery and climbing. We cooked marshmallows on an outdoor fire. This year we were also welcomed by the crew of The Dolphin boat in Poole Harbour who took us on a trip around the harbour.
The Roy Lewis Memorial Prize last year was awarded to Darren and Maria for their wedding celebrations.
We have lots of fun activites planned for Christmas and have already booked to see a pantomime early next year (oh yes we have!)
Once again we really do appreciated all the continued support from our friends and families and everyone else who continues to make Phab fab.
Helen Williams Chair, Oxford Phab, November 2018
We had the usual financial reports, election of Officers and the Committee etc. After these routine matters we were very pleased to have Robin, who has organised many quiz nights for us, and Penny, who has been been a valued and helpful member for many years as this year’s recpients of the Roy Lewis Award.
