All committee members were re-elected with the exception of Amanda Collinson and Peter Faulkner both leaving committee after 4 and 16 years respectively. Jo Tofts remains on committee but has relinquished her role as secretary. All were presented with gifts as a thank you for their much appreciated efforts. Two new members Diane Pohlman and Kay Walker were elected for the first time. See the committee page for full listing.

Potato Day

Thanks to all the members who came to the Trading Store Potato Day on Sunday (28th), what a great turnout. Thanks also to everyone who helped; Diane and Myra provided home-made soup, Peter H manned the till and an army of store helpers just about kept up with the demand for spuds.

Flower of the month

Sausage Sizzle Social

Just under 60 people enjoyed our second Sausage Sizzle Social. Sausage and mash was followed by apple crumble and custard. This was followed by an after dinner quiz which was won by Team Janet.
