BROMSGROVE Phoenix is a lively group which meets every Thursday evening at Lickey End Social Club at 8pm.

Over the past few months the club has done various activities including a meal out at a Mexican restaurant and a tenpin bowling evening.

Events planned include a riverboat shuffle in July. The club held a Valentines disco in February. In March the club organised a disco and invited all the NCDS&W clubs in the region.

More than 80 people attended and it was a big success.

AtthiseventchairmanLeswas able to present a cheque for £638 to a member of the Primrose Hospice volunteers. This amount was raised by donations, selling Primrose Hospice goods and donating the entrance fee when a member of Primrose Hospice choir entertained the club in December.

The biggest amount was raised by the chairman when he did a sponsored swim.

Seventeen members attended the AGM weekend in March in Skegness. Every Thursday the club has a quiz, games or you can just sit and talk to each other with music playing in the background. If you would like to come and see if the club is for you, call Barbara or Les on 0121 4577174 or Avril on 01527 578063. Alternatively just turn up on any Thursday evening.
