Meeting 14 March 2016

There had been a good turnout for the annual litter pick (or Clean for the Queen as it was called this year) and Barbara thanked all the volunteers, the organisers and cake makers as well as those who actually picked up the litter. The recent coffee morning and first Friday lunch had also been well supported.

Forthcoming events included the next lunch, once again at the Bell, on Friday 1st April, and the ACWW walk round the quarry on April 24th. This would be followed by refreshments at Shelagh Haywood’s house.  Even further ahead was the Group social to be held at Beckington on Tuesday 28th June from 5.30pm. This was to have a “Royal Garden Party” theme, so a chance to dress up a bit and it would be free to attend.

Finally we learnt that our next meeting, featuring Bollywood dancing, would be an open one and Mary encouraged us to all bring a friend along.

Our speaker, author Michael Malaghan, gave us an amusing account of how he started writing, first as a journalist on a local newspaper and later creating scripts for children’s TV programmes as well as writing books for both children and adults.

The April meeting will be on Monday 11th at 7.30pm, do come along and join in the fun!

Clean for the Queen

What a pity so many people drive through our lovely village throwing their rubbish out of the car window.  Thank you to the 21 'litter pickers' and the 5 other helpers for clearing up this mess.  Cider cans and vodka bottles in large quantities - plus a toasted sandwich maker and a clothes horse!!

Some of the Team!

And 'Thank You' to the ladies who baked such delicious cakes & served Refreshments.  A very welcome sit down at the end of the hard work.

We must also thank Caroline for organising this annual Village event.  I look forward to the year when we return to the Hall with empty bags!!
