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:
3 December EACC does Desert Island Discs.
Have you ever wondered what floats your fellow EACCer's musical boats? Is it true PippinJack are massive fans of Shakin’ Stevens? Is Roger (Lily) more Mariah Carey or Maria Callas? Maybe we will find out! 5 EACCers, 5 discs (one each) and one luxury. First up is the skipper, but volunteers needed to complete the lineup. Contact Cally to take part.
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.
THANK YOU TO ALL MEMBERS WHO TOOK A TURN (SOME MORE THAN ONCE) AT MOWING LAST YEAR.

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.
In 2019 EACC raised a magnificent
£818.00 for NANSA
(Norfolk And Norwich Scope Association for
teenagers and adults with learning, physical and
complex additional needs or disabilities)
David and Lesley visted NANSA on 10th January and presented a cheque for £818
Thanks to Lesley and Roger Everett
for co-ordinating our efforts
