In June we held our AGM. We do encourage as many people as possible to attend as this is an opportunity for them to contribute to the running of the group.. We do welcome all contributions. This year some 20 people attended. There was a lot of discussion on what events we might hold,but most were not feasible due mainly to Health and Safety regulations. Diane distributed copies of our accounts which enables everyone to see how the money raised is spent. It was agreed that as everything is progressing well, we should just continue with the same programme.
On June 18th was Carer's day and everyone got a beautiful geranium to mark the day. We gave away 80 in total. This superb plants will last a good 2-3 years if well looked after.
June 27th was our Carer's Cream Tea Day. 25 people came and we had lovely afternoon. My very good friends Rosana and Alex came to show us how to use Modern Calligraphy and how we could then apply that skill into making lovely cards. It was good to see 25 women all silently concentrating on what they were doing. Yvonne and her team then served us all with a most delicious Cream Tea which we all enjoyed, and everyone went home with a 'Goodie bag", and a smile their face.
We are now into July. Our varied programme of entertainment continues. We are hoping to hold a Grand Tombola in early October to raise funds towards our Christmas Hampers. We give 12 away at our party in December. It will all soon be here!!!
