July/August 2022


Fifty one of us were at the meeting on Monday 11th.  It was good to see so many especially those who haven’t been for some time.

The topic was Tetbury, our Town. Thank you, Lorna, for organising the evening. Three speakers were: Peter Coleman, the Mayor, owns a care home and spoke about our response to dementia. Tony Walsh gave information about the history of the Feoffees and the Thirteen and the charities they support. Lian Franklin from Tetbury hospital was very informative and answered several questions, some difficult.

Sally and Jayne who represented us at the National Federation conference in Liverpool in June.  Sally gave us her report and offered a drink – in jest I think – if you can spot them on the photograph on page 9 of this month’s W I Life.

Anne then gave information about the Group meeting in Kemble which was also held in June. She passed on warnings about honey containing additives from the speaker and then we had a delicious ploughman’s  supper.

Jan took names for the coach trip to Wells on August 10th – do get in touch with her if you are interested.
