January 2019

January saw a change of venue for our monthly meeting and Chris welcomed over 65 members and 1 visitor to The Goods Shed, where our speaker Tracy Spiers, whose articles appear in Cotswold Life, entertained us with her tails of “Pink Frogs and Frisky Ferrets”.  Journalist, Tracy is a mum to 5 daughters and following years with the Stroud News Journal and the BBC now works freelance with special interests in the creative arts in and around the local area. Her light hearted view of life brightened our January evening!

There is a meal organised at the The Close Hotel at the end of the Month which always proves popular in the bleak winter months contact Ali if you would like to go.

Jan is busy planning outings and if you have any suggestions please get in touch.

Members from the Needlework group visited Cheltenham Hospital on the 18th of January to hand over a bundle of sweet baby hats to the Maternity Unit and also deliver a cheque to the Cobalt Unit – donations were collected in the ‘Booby Bag’
