The February meeting was chaired by Caroline who reminded us we need a permanent President by May so all members need to consider if they could put themselves forward for this and thus keep the group going.
Those who came to the Bingo Birthday Party in January had a really good time but it was a pity more members were unable to attend. Thanks were again given to Frank Higgins for being our caller and to those who donated prizes and cakes. The February first Friday lunch in the Bell had been well attended and it was decided to try the Waggon and Horses for the next one which would be on Friday 6th March from 12.15. Other future dates included the Road Show at Kilmersdon on the 10th March, the village clean up on Sat 14th, the Group meeting on Thurs 26th and a live screening of the National AGM in the Memorial Hall on Thurs 4th June between 10 and 4. The plan for this was to provide some simple refreshments but to ask people to bring their own lunch. They could stay all day or dip in and out as they wished.
Our speaker was caricaturist Sarah Bailey. She gave us a talk full of enthusiasm which explained how her love of drawing started and developed so that she is now able to make a living from it. Afterwards some of the members had their own caricature created by her for a small fee.
The next meeting at 7.30pm on Monday 9th March will include a talk from Happy Landings Animal Shelter. They have asked for any old bedding etc. to be donated, in any condition, so this is the ideal chance to have a sort out for a good cause.

5 members met on Friday at The Bell for lunch. We had a good time catching up on news and had to wonder if Friday was a "special women's day". Not one but two other groups of ladies came into the pub for lunch and at times it got quite noisy! One brave man came in for a drink. Hope those who were feeling unwell and unable to join us are much better now. Margaret will have news about the next lunch in March.
