Names were being taken in February for the coming Roadshow at Beckington and the Hall quiz both in March and for the theatre outing to the Merlin in Frome on April 6th. Recent social events included the fundraising breakfast for Denman organised by Barbara and the Leigh WI birthday party, both hosted by Shelagh. In March we would as usual have the first Friday lunch in the Bell, the coffee morning on the 6th and on Saturday the 4th the village litter pick. Looking ahead to June we are once again running the produce and cake stall at the fete with the addition of ice creams, in small tubs for convenience. Mary has stepped into the breach and will be representing us at the February fete meeting.
The breakfast raised over £50 for Denman but Barbara explained we have been asked to raise even more to help them to continue to exist and provide such a valuable and enjoyable educational and social resource. She asked us to think of any ideas we could use.
Our talk was about Frome FM radio which you may be able to pick up on 96.6fm. The range is officially 5 miles from Frome but Helen Ottaway, their chair, assured us she was still able to tune in when she arrived in Leigh. They are on air 24 hours a day with a mix of music and talk shows. In April they will be moving to the new town hall in Frome on Christchurch St and Helen encouraged us to drop in and see how things work, there will be other organisations on site including the Tourist Information and a café, so well worth making the trip.
Our meeting at 7.30 on March 13th will include a talk called UK Calendar Customs
