Flower of the Month

A new idea for monthly meetings starting in February is ‘Flower of the Month’. We ask that members bring along a flower from their garden which we will display on a table. People are invited to put a few pence alongside the one they think is the best and the person who has most money by their flower is the winner. So, let’s see your flowers on the 16th!

Potato Day

Thanks to all the members who came to the Trading Store Potato Day on Sunday (29th), what a great turnout. Thanks also to everyone who helped; Maureen and Myra provided home-made soup which was ably served by John H, Peter F manned the till and an army of store helpers just about kept up with the demand for spuds.
