If you have never visited Liverpool you will be amazed and surprised at all it has to offer. Once the second most powerful city in the British Empire and the world’s largest port, Liverpool has more Georgian buildings than Bath and it is a former European City of Culture. It also contains six areas designated as UNESCO world heritage sites! And of course, it is the home of the Beatles and the birthplace of the British pop music revolution! In recent years Liverpool has undergone an astonishing regeneration and in 2018 it was rated one of the top three UK destinations in a TripAdvisor traveller poll.Find out more »
It’s that time of year again, clocks soon going back, Halloween and of course the TSCC Annual Dinner so please see the attached flyer and menu and let me have your menu choices as soon as possible but by Sunday 20th October at latest.
The subject for the 2019 Ray Andrews Photo Competition is “Summer Sun” which should provide plenty of scope.
Please see attached the flyer for our Christmas get together which I am certain is going to be lots of fun.
We do hope that you will join us.
Our AGMs are always well attended as they provide the opportunity to reminisce over the past year’s events and to put our names down for future events as well as just chatting among ourselves over tea.
The Committee members will bring sandwiches and it will be appreciated if other members were to bring cakes and / or savouries for our social tea party after the AGM. Tea and Coffee will be supplied by TSCC.

EVENT CANCELLED due to COVID19
UPDATE 4 MAY 2020: This event was cancelled and they are sending us refunds which our treasurer, Pauline, will process.
UPDATE 30 March 2020
Hope you are all staying well and finding plenty to do.
I have just spoken with ATG tickets about the cancelled performance . They are hoping to reschedule the performance for either later this year or sometime in 2021 so are not offering a refund at this point. Once we know the rescheduled date, we can then decide what we want to do.
I’ll keep you posted.
Update - 16 March 2020, 18.30
From ATG Tickets
In response to the Prime Minister’s statement this evening, advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including in theatres, we regret to inform you that shows in all Ambassador Theatre Group UK venues are temporarily suspended with immediate effect.
We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment, and a massive inconvenience for those of you already on the way to a venue this evening, but ultimately we all want the same thing: the health and safety of our communities, and we believe this is the correct decision to make.
Given the current ambiguity and lack of clarity as to how long our theatres may be closed for, we hope to provide you with an update within the next 48 hours regarding the exchange of tickets. We will be consulting with industry bodies including the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre and the government over the immediate future.
For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and to recognise the incredible efforts and support of producers, artists, partners and customers over this difficult period.
Group CEO, Ambassador Theatre Group
4 MAY 2020: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED and they are sending us deposit refunds which Pauline will process. Unfortunately refunds cannot be obtained for the travel insurance which a few participants bought.
16 March 2020. To all TSCC members who have booked for the Scenic Scotland tour
Please see below an extract from a question and answer section on the website of Lochs and Glens, the tour organiser.
Question: My holiday is cancelled because the government changes its advice or Lochs and Glens decide not to operate the tour. Does my policy cover me for cancellation?
Answer: No. In the event of the government advising against all travel or all but essential travel then Lochs and Glens Holidays will refund the holiday money that you have paid.
The bad news is of course that, for very good reasons, the government is now advising against all but essential travel so this trip will clearly be cancelled. The good news is that it would appear all monies paid will be refunded.
We will keep you posted.

UPDATE 23 June 2020
Now that it seems most likely that restrictions on the use of the Thames will soon be relaxed we are re-scheduling our Thames cruise for Tuesday 4th August through Friday 7th August.
For those of you who have expressed an interest in joining us for the resurrected Thames cruise we are endeavouring to secure bookings for moorings as follows.
Tuesday 4th August ~ Boveney Lock where we hope to use the BBQ there for a centrally cooked feast.
Wednesday 5th August ~ Cookham Lock where we may cook our own evening meal or perhaps enjoy a take-away.
Thursday 6th & 7th August ~ Hurley Lock Island where we may socialize and cook our own evening mealsone evening and perhaps eat in the Rising Sun garden the other evening.
All socially distanced according to rules at the time, of course.
This week I have left messages with each of the three lock keepers asking them to pencil in these dates and I will follow up with them to ensure that we secure these mooring dates.
The following members have previously expressed an interest:
Mark and Jackie (Boat already hired)
Ray & Elaina (Patti)
Mike& Ann (Quiet Waters)
Andrew & Celia (Wisecrack)
David & Diana (Severa)
Harvey & Joy (Harvey’s Joy)
Les & Sally (Enterprise V)
George & Janet (MV Saluki).
I will keep you posted on the moorings situation and in the meantime would those listed above please confirm that they can make the 4th to 7th August and If any other boat owners or hirers would like to join us please also let me know.
UPDATE: 4 MAY 2020: This is very unlikely to proceed but we will have to see what relaxations have been announced by then. If it is possible to organise and there is sufficient interest, we will consider a scaled back event with few if any off-site activities but with lots of quality riverside relaxation in the company of friends with suitable social distancing! Alternatively, we will consider rescheduling in September when restrictions may be fewer and the weather equally pleasant. As the finale of the June event, many members had booked for a show plus dinner at The Mill at Sonning. This will almost certainly be cancelled but the owners of this privately run theatre have asked whether those with bookings would accept credits rather than refunds to help with cash flow. This must be an individual decision. If you have bought tickets for this event please email Jackie at email@example.com to let her know your preference.
UPDATE 18 March 2020.
“Dear TSCC Member,
If you have expressed an interest in joining us on our Thames Cruise and/or the Sonning Mill evening this coming June, please read on:
Current government Coronavirus guidance includes the following sentence: Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
Our Thames Cruise would clearly be just such a gathering.
In the circumstances we have decided to put on hold all planning for this event.
In the unlikely situation that things improve dramatically by the middle of June and government guidance changes we will be in touch again to see if you are interested to join us on what will then become a Celebration Cruise.
We will keep our fingers crossed but not with any great confidence.
Jackie will be contacting those who booked tickets for Sonning Mill with regard to refunds.
Meantime take care and do let us have any thoughts and feedback.”
Sent on behalf of Mark Marriott
