‘Many hands make light work’. Well done ladies the bouquets are really beautiful.  Thank you all so much.

It was another lovely evening and wonderful to see more ladies joining us.

I hope the resolution part wasn’t too much, but I think it is vital that we take part in the resolution process and make our voices heard. I will take your votes to Bournemouth and report back to you next month.

Our deepest condolences go to Valerie on the loss of her husband George.  Sending you all of our love Val.

We have had another very busy month and there are still more fun events coming up:

On 11th June 2pm we are taking a river trip in Canterbury (unless it is torrential rain) and will meet at 12.00 for lunch first. If you want to join us just let me know.

Our Annual Garden Party will take place on Thursday July 4th in Janice’s garden. We will have a great entertainer and a BBQ. Husbands are invited too. Please put your name on the list indicating if your husband is coming and whether you are bring a salad or desert.

The Bredgar Group lunch on July 11th at Upchurch Golf Club needs to be paid for and I need your menu choices. Please make cheques payable to Bredgar Group WI for £21 if you have paid your deposit or £26 if not.

There is a Garden Party to celebrate East Kent’s Centenary on Monday July 22nd at St Edmunds School, Canterbury. Please let Marcelle know if you want to attend.

I am trying to book a tour of Shepherd Neame brewery after the 9th October. If you are interested please let me know.

I am also enquiring to see who would be interested in a Christmas Party night at the Great Danes (it’s called Christmas Beatles) 3 or 4th December £30 for a 3 course meal.
