Milstead w Frinsted Newsletter june 2018.


It was lovely to see so many at this month’s meeting. I hope you enjoyed the speaker. What a different way of life now in our villages !

As I mentioned upon on Thursday I attended the AGM at Cardiff and will try to put together something cohesive when I can find my notes! It was a brilliant meeting with superb speakers. The Mental Health Resolution was passed with a 98% majority.

A huge thank you to the ladies that made floral posies for Dilys, Julie and I to distribute at Age UK in Sittingbourne. They were absolutely delighted and surprised to receive them. Some gentlemen took one as well. We also managed to give one to each member of staff.  For such a small effort and expense we made 50 people very happy.

At present we have 11 visiting Tram Hatch gardens near Ashford on Saturday 23rd June at 12.00. If you would like to join us just let me know.  These gardens are really beautiful and Pam is going to make us a ploughman’s lunch.

The Walking Group are meeting at Riverside County Park, Rainham on Friday 29th June at 1pm. Dogs are welcome too.

Thank you to the ladies who have volunteered to help at the Coffee Morning at Frinsted on the 7th July. If you can arrive around 10.00 to help prepare that would be wonderful. We need as many cakes as you can all make please. If you can’t make it to Frinsted you can leave them with us at the Garden Party meeting. We also need raffle prizes, plants for sale and tombola prizes. If you haven’t been before this is a very nice coffee morning with all the proceeds going to a Charity we have chosen – New Leaf Support.

The craft club will meet at Joyce’s on 11th July at 1pm. If you are going please let Joyce know for numbers.

Our Garden Party this year is at Mandy’s house on Thursday 5th July. We will have entertainment this year, plus picnic boxes (as we had last year). If your name isn’t down please let Marcelle know as soon as you can. This will be a brilliant evening and a chance to really socialise.

Please join us 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!

On September 21st we are having a wine tasting evening. It will be £10 a head and is of course open to anyone. It is a fundraising event so please support us.
