july 2017 Newsletter!


I hope that those of you who were able to attend our Garden Party last night enjoyed yourselves. The weather couldn’t have been better and the location looked really lovely. Thanks to the committee for all their work to make it so seamless.  I have good news for everyone worried about my dress – the damage hardly notices, well done to whoever it was with the scissors!! I felt such a twit! The hat game was brilliant fun, even though there was some serious cheating going on! It was a perfect evening!

On a sadder note both Dilys and Elaine Sydenham lost their mums this month and I know that you all join me in sending all of our love to them both at this sad and difficult time.

We also send Iris all our love as she continues to recover from her accident. Hopefully, if she’s not home already it won’t be long. Get Better soon Iris xx

The craft club will meet this month on the 11th  at Joyce’s house as usual, 1-3pm. Bring along any buttons, zips and things that would look and feel lovely sewn onto the fiddle cushions. The cushion that Valerie and Joyce showed us last night look brilliant. If you want to come along, even on an informal basis please come along and join the ladies.

The visit to Goodnestone Park on the 27th July has been postponed as only three of us were able to make it. Summer is always a tricky time with outings as you are all such a busy lot! If you have any ideas for trips out please let Dilys or I know.

Wormshill have started to hold a Pop up Café on the first Tuesday of the month at their village hall between 10 and 12. The first one this month was good fun. Do go along and support them.

Milstead are holding their Annual Flower Show on Saturday 19th August 14.30-16.30. We are looking for volunteers for our entry; it comprises a floral display, craft item and a cake. If you can help we would be very grateful. Contact me or Marcelle if you are interested. But even if you can’t help with the exhibit please do come along and support the event.

Date of our next meeting is the 3rd August, this is our programme planning meeting. It will be a relaxed meeting with plenty of time to socialise. Look forward to seeing you all there.
