During the day, we will have one main dealer, Pat Fallon.  In addition, our other two lecturers will have items for sale.  As we have plenty of room, we will be laying out a number of tables so that anybody who attends is free to set up and sell.  It will be very relaxed so you can leave your stuff out with prices and, either through an honesty box or by staying with your items, sell as much as you like.  We will also have a Society table so that if anybody wants to donate items for sale for Society funds, it would be most appreciated.


The raffle is always a popular feature of our annual dinner. This year is no exception.  We do rely on the generosity of members and friends to donate prizes.  As usual, Jim Harvey will be collecting items for the auction from now right up until the night.  Please let’s this make this a record year!


We need to know requirements for the dinner by noon on 14th April.  Please get in touch with George Bleeks on 07860 115611 or at [email protected] or, by post, at 114 North Parade, Belfast, BT7 2GJ with numbers in your party, menu choices and any special dietary requirements.  It would also be useful if you could indicate if you will be attending the day events.
