41 members and 2 visitors attended our July annual social night. This year’s theme was the “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party”. This was an opportunity for those who wished to dress as their favourite character from ‘Alice in Wonderland’ or ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ to do so and indeed they did. A collection of rabbits, mad hatters, the queen of hearts and 2 Alices to name but a few arrived early, “Not late” for another lovely evening. There was themed tea party food including sandwiches and a variety of cakes washed down with a “Drink Me” bottle of fizz and I’m glad to report we did.
There were 3 quiz’s to be completed, the joint one was won by the team consisting of Helene Gooding, Jean Hicks, Pam Leggett, Marianne Smith, Wyn Oxton and Caroline Wilson with 17 points out of a potential 20 and the best dressed was awarded to Jean Hedger as the outstanding “Mad Hatter” of the night. Also the game “Pinning the moustache on the Cheshire Cat” was won by Angela Clark.
As we don’t meet in August our next get together is on the 22nd September when Edward Lubbock and Sue Kidd will tell us about “Hot Air Ballooning”. Membership is currently full but visitors are very welcome at a cost of £5.00.

Fifty members in an array of WW2 outfits attended the AGM in March.
The formal part of the evening was attended to first with the President’s Report being read by Pam Foakes, our outgoing President, she reminded us of some of the speakers and entertainment we had had over the last year and thanked the committee for their hard work and then Jane Anderson gave a very comprehensive report on the club’s accounts.
The current Committee were re-elected together with Sue Copeland (a previous committee member who had been persuaded to re-join) as Sheila Gray was stepping down. Gen Frewell was voted in as President for the current year with Julia Dymond agreeing to be Vice-President. Pam was presented with a bouquet of flowers for all her hard work over her year and Sheila’s were delivered to her the following day.
Everyone then tucked into a Fish and Chip Supper and this was followed by a fun quiz which was won by Sue Copeland, Caroline Hendrickx, Diana King and Carolyn Richardson. The prize for the best dressed went to Angela Clarke.
The next get together is on 22nd April when R. Sloane will be the speaker with the subject of “From Babies to Broadcasting”. Currently membership is full but visitors are very welcome at the cost of £3.50 which includes refreshments.
