 THE NON-THURNE TABLE FRIDAYS

3 December, 7 January, 4 February, 4 March at 7.30pm

 
 

As you all know, there is a table reserved for EACC at the Thurne Lion every Friday at 7pm except for the first Friday in the month.  On the first Friday each month we will have a virtual event on Zoom to enable those who live away or cannot come to the pub for whatever reason to join us in a sociable event.  We thought it might be good to have a programme for these Fridays, so this is what we have planned:

 

7 January  Quiz time. 

Maybe with a post-seasonal theme.

 

4 February  Virtual wine tasting.

Just what we will all need after doing Dry January or even Just January.  Details of wines to be confirmed in plenty of time.

CHARITY

EACC's chosen charity for 2021 is

NORFOLK SCHOOLS SAILING ASSOCIATION

NSSA is a local charity run by volunteers and based on Filby Broad. They provide sail training opportunities for children aged from 8-18. They get no local authority funding and rely on grants, donations and membership fees to cover their operating costs.
