Milstead w Frinsted Newsletter November 2017.

Thanks for your vote of support, it was much appreciated (or was it just that nobody else wanted to do it!) I will do my very best this year to make it an interesting and fun year for you all.

BCL has sold for £372,000 at auction this week and the Trustees have a month to move to the new premises.

The resolutions have been announced for 2018. You will have the opportunity to vote for your choice early next year and then we will have our Resolution meeting in May to decide whether we are in favour of the chosen resolution. They are:

  1. Positive body image in a digital age
  2. Stop FGM
  3. Raising awareness of modern slavery
  4. Mental health matters
  5. Healthy mouth healthier body

All interesting I am sure you will agree.

Craft club starts up again next week on the 8th at 1.30pm. If your name is down but you can’t make it please let Sue or Joyce know.

Our 95th Birthday party on the 16th November 7pm at The Blacksmiths Arms. If you haven’t put your name down yet can you please let us know ASAP? It should be a brilliant evening – with no washing up!! If you need a lift please be at Milstead VH at 6.30.

The Not in My Name meeting at Rodmersham Café is on Friday 24th at 4pm; please bring some toiletries for the local refuge and some money to buy your tea and cake.

At present I have 8 names for the Christmas Wreath workshop on Tuesday 12th December 2-4pm. If you want to join us can you let me know? It costs £25 which will include all materials and cake and mulled wine!!

The Christmas meal this year is at the Carpenter’s Arms, Eastling at 1pm Saturday 9th December. I will send out the menu to those ladies who haven’t chosen their menu following this, if you could let me have your choices so I can pay our deposit and secure the table.

The Social Evening on the 19th January 7pm has been changed to sausage and mash and bingo, just for a change. Hope this suits everybody. This evening is open to all, so bring along friends and family for a fun evening. Just let us know or put your numbers down on the list next month.

Could you please remember to bring non-perishable food to the December meeting for our Christmas Foodbank collection?

Our 7th December meeting should be great fun with Mandy Winters – the yodelling cowgirl! Yes that is correct! If you want to dress Christmassy that would be great. I’m sure Mandy will dress to impress.

Look forward to seeing most of you at Wormshill in a fortnight.
