We hope you are enjoying the summer and also some of our events and outings, of which we have had several so far this year, all of which have been much enjoyed by those taking part. We still have more to come during the remainder of the year—see the list overleaf.
Don’t forget we are essentially an activities club so if you are not already involved in some of our groups do give them a try. Most have spaces available—contact the organisers for details.
COFFEE ROTA: Copies of rota have been sent to those involved. New vol.unteers are always required to keep the rota going. Please get in touch with Linda Savage if you can help.
