Strathkelvin District Christmas Lunch.

On Wednesday, 5th December, Strathkelvin and District Pensioners once again held their Annual Christmas Lunch in Douglas Park Golf Club .

This is an excellent venue and 55 members enjoyed a three course lunch followed by mince pies, tea/coffee and mints. The quality of food and service was excellent as usual.

Graham Scott,  who is retiring as local chairman, welcomed everyone and in particular, singled out Chris Hunter, now aged 92 for a special welcome. Chris was on the Committee for many years and was a great supporter of all the activities. Graham also mentioned one of our former chairmen, Hassie Young, who is now 103 and is as alert as he always was.  He now resides in Erskine Care Home. (More on Hassie can be read here.)

Graham also introduced Senga Dempster who is taking over from him. To Senga and her team who organised the lunch and more particularly the magnificent raffle, a special thanks for their hard work.

More Festive Lunches Announced!

Don’t worry – you’ve not been forgotten!

For various reasons, some Festive Lunches are not taking part until the New Year. Over the next week or so, more dates will be added to the drop-down menu on the ‘Festive Lunches’ page.(Seems like a good place to display them.) Physical /hard copies of the notice will be sent to members in due course. There is no need to reply to the notifications on this site, as these are purely for information for all members.



An exciting change …

We are excited to announce, rather than invite presentations on the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, tours of the College have been arranged for the 14th February at 11 am and the 15th February at 12pm.

Take a Bow – a message from Janette.

Take a bow, all BOSPEN (Glasgow & District) members!

The stage is set – throughout the month of October we will be going to three theatre events. There has been a wonderful response to the flyers, and one hundred and sixty-nine people will be attending theses social outings!
