    I think that we must look at getting a copy of the movie ‘Queen of the Sun’ and have another supper film evening at that place in Avondale. Will bring it up at committee.

    Sounds like a great Idea Martin, It starts in the Cinemas on 24 Apr 2011.

    That roast dinner was pretty nice, so keen as if you can arrange it.

    See ya…Gary
