Our monthly meeting was held for the final time at Christ Church and Chris opened the meeting to 60 members. As this was our Annual Meeting Chris asked if there were any nominations for the committee and as there were none the current committee were happy to stand for another year.
The Biennial Denman bursary was drawn towards the end of the meeting and Gill W was happy to receive £250 towards the costs of a course at Denman College.
We also passed around the wonderful ‘Booby Bag’ which was created by Linda to collect donations for the Cobalt Cancer Unit in Cheltenham. We raised £138.71 which will be sent off by Pam.
The needlework and craft groups will once again be creating decorations for the Christmas Tree display in St Saviours Church and they can be seen from early December until 4th January.
There were fascinating reports from the Art Group, Book Groups I,II and III, Food Group, Green Fingers, Needlecraft, Craft Group, Supper Club and Ukulele Group all have been busy throughout the year and tea, cake, laughter and friendship seemed to be the common denominator along with learning a new skill and trips with group related themes.
After the business was done Rowena Palser, one of our newer members gave us a interesting ‘Meet a member’ talk on her career change at the age of 52 ½ when she became a flight attendant for British Airways and Virgin. Her anecdotes were the sometimes hilarious and sometime scary experiences she had in her brave new career.
Some of our members are looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit with a trip to Blenheim Palace to see the Christmas Decorations, Market and Illuminated trail on the 30th November.
The next meeting is on: Monday 10th December – Christmas Meal and Social at the Hare and Hounds, Westonbirt.
Monday 14th January 2019 – in our new temporary home at Tetbury Goods Shed – Pink Frogs and Frisky Ferrets with Tracy Spiers
