Well I don’t know about you but I thought that was one of the most interesting talks we’ve had. It’s good to know our safety at airports is in such good hands!

Another huge congratulation to our first Woman of the Month – Donna. For those of you that weren’t at the meeting, Donna has been going to Faversham pool every Saturday morning to learn how to dive!!!!!!!! Watch out Tom Daly. What an amazing achievement. We look forward to a demonstration Donna!

The craft club will meet at Joyce’s tomorrow at 1pm. If you are going please let Joyce know for numbers. They will be starting on the gorgeous rag garlands.

Please come along to the Village Hall on Saturday 18th August at 2.30 to see the amazing entries in the Horticultural Society Annual Show or even see Jenny for the entry form and submit something yourself!

We will be doing Line Dancing on Thursday 20th  September at 2pm in the Village Hall and there will be a nice walk on Tuesday 18th, please let Donna know if you want to participate in the walk (more details to follow).
