Milstead w Frinsted Newsletter



So nice to see so many of you on Thursday. All of our best wishes go to Iris and Elaine B who are very under the weather at the moment. Get well soon.

Congratulations again to Jenny for being simply amazing. She was our Woman of the Month for September. She not only organised the Horticultural Annual Show but also had entries in so many categories and at the very last minute made the most beautiful cake for the WI entry as yours truly couldn’t do it! Thanks Jenny between you, Joyce and Marcelle we not only beat the other two WI entries but picked up best in show as well.

At the November meeting you have a chance to make a difference by joining the committee. If this is something you would like to do just let Marcelle or I know. Next month you will be asked to nominate 8 people for the committee members. They will then be asked if they want to stand for election. If they do, you all get to vote for 8 ladies at the November meeting. Can’t believe another year has passed!

The craft club will meet at Joyce’s this Wednesday the 12th at 1pm. If you are going please let Joyce know for numbers.

Next week is the start of Sports Week. We have a walk around Moat Park on Tuesday the 18th at 2pm and Line Dancing on Thursday 20th September at 2pm in the Village Hall. If you want to join in please let Marcelle know. It is only for fun and the more of us that take part the more fun we all have.

We are really looking forward to our September fundraiser on Friday 21st 7pm for 7.30pm.

Borden has their birthday party on Tuesday October 9th at 2.15pm. If you would like to join us please let Marcelle know.

On Tuesday 16th October we are visiting the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. We will travel from Sittingbourne to Stratford by train. We are having a walking tour which lasts around an hour and will cost £8/£6, then a boat tour £9/£8. For those wanting to go up the Arcelor Mittal Orbit tower the cost is £11.50/8.50. You can also come down via the slide! We will have lunch at Westfield’s shopping centre afterwards. This will be a really interesting day. Please let Marcelle know if you are joining us.

Our November meeting will have a £5 charity hat challenge – an amazing prize will be given to the Hat considered the most impressive. The only proviso is that it costs no more than £5!!!! So when you are out and about keep your eyes peeled!

Our Christmas Lunch will take place on Saturday 8th December at the Plough, Lewson Street 1pm. If you name isn’t on the list please contact Marcelle and please bring along the £5 deposit next month.

If there are any events you see in the EK news that you would like to join in with just speak to Marcelle and she can book it for you.

For our new ladies – if there is anything that you do not understand please ask me , it can be a bit confusing to start with !

Look forward to seeing you all next month for the Candle Making demonstration on Thursday October 4th.
