Monthly Meeting March 2017

We had been busy in the weeks before the March meeting, joining in the village clean up, enjoying a lunch in the Bell and a coffee morning in the Hall as well as taking part in the Tarmac Trophy quiz. Earlier in the day some members had attended the Road Show at Beckington where there had been a very good speaker talking about her diplomatic life in Pakistan and Bangladesh and plenty of information available about all sorts of issues.

Barbara again mentioned the Denman fundraising and suggested a jumble sale in the autumn which several members agreed to help with. We may also hold a 'Soup & Pud' lunch.  On a different topic, we are also going to look again at the idea of knitting Twiddle Muffs, maybe as an extension of the Craft and Cuppa group. Looking ahead to April some members are going to the Merlin Theatre on the 6th and Sunday 30th is the Women Walk the World day which we usually support but no plans in place yet.  We will probably start from the village about 2.30pm and end up having tea and cake!

The Resolutions for the National AGM in June had been chosen and would be about “Plastic Soup” and “Loneliness”. We would discuss these at our May meeting and needed 2 people to speak on each, one for and one against.

We then had a talk on UK Calendar Customs from Daphne Atkinson. She showed us pictures and gave us details of many strange and amusing activities which take place in various towns and villages all over the UK on specific dates in the year, some familiar, most not.

At our meeting at 7.30 on April 10th we will hear about (and taste!) Cocktails and Mocktails from Daniel Mears

What a Load of Rubbish!!!

Many thanks to all the residents of Leigh on Mendip who turned up on Saturday 4 March to help with the Litter Pick.  And 'Thank You' to the ladies who were serving tea and cake to everyone who returned to the Hall after their hard work.

Our roads and lanes are now much cleaner and hopefully will stay that way.  Thank you to those walkers who regularly clear the rubbish they see - it has certainly made a difference to the amount collected on this annual event.
