Back to normal after Christmas with subscription payments due and our raffle prizes for the year to hand in. We were pleased to hear Shelagh had joined the committee and to receive our programmes with details of forthcoming meetings. Notice was given of the annual litter pick on Sat March 5th and the group meeting at Nunney on Wed March 23rd. With the latter for an entry fee of £3.50 you will be able to listen to a talk from the BBC’s Sara Jane Bungay and enjoy some light refreshments.
Caroline had delivered the sheets etc. for the women’s refuge and they would like even more, anything for single size beds including duvets and pillowslips as well as sheets would be appreciated. Finally Jan asked that we let her know of any ideas for the 2017 programme planning meeting in September well in advance and also any ideas for summer evening outings this year.
Our speaker, Lynn, from Happy Landings showed us a lot of pictures of the animals they look after and also brought along one of the dogs to the meeting. The charity is based at Hillcroft Farm in Pylle and serves as both a rescue centre and a kennels and cattery. That said they also take in a great variety of other animals from chickens to pigs and ferrets. They are currently fundraising to have new kennels built so any donations would be very welcome.
Our meeting in February is on Monday 8th at 7.30pm when we will be able to enjoy “Garden views set to music”.
