Leigh on Mendip Summer Fair 2017

What Fantastic Weather!

Ice-creams sold out.  And the cakes that didn't sell in the afternoon went quite quickly with the youngsters at the Evening Entertainment.

Thank You to Everyone who baked cakes, made jams, etc and helped set up and sell on the Day.

Enjoy the Sunshine whilst it lasts!

12 June - Monthly Meeting

In June our meeting was chaired for the first time by Sue Rodford in her role as our new President. Many of the business matters, such as the outing to Waitrose on the 24th July, the President’s evening at Mary’s house on 10th August and the jumble sale on 7th October had already been touched on at previous meetings but it gave us a chance to firm up on these dates in our diaries.

Caroline gave us a report on the AGM in Liverpool which had included some inspirational speakers. The resolution about loneliness had received mixed responses partly due to the wording with some delegates feeling it was not a matter for the Government to act on. However it was still passed. A more resounding approval was given to the resolution about plastic soup. It was encouraging to hear that there are currently two products being developed which could be put in washing machines to combat the problem of micro plastic fibres getting into our waterways.

Sue made an appeal for more members to join the committee and also told us that the programme planning meeting for next year would take place at Caroline’s house on Tuesday 17th October. Do see what ideas you can come up with and give a committee member the details if you are unable to go along yourself.

Our talk on the Great Barrier Reef included pictures of many of the myriad of organisms which form the coral and live in it. We were encouraged to go and see for ourselves if we ever get the chance.

The talk at our meeting on the 10th of July will be on Horseshoes and Handprints, come along and find out what it’s all about!
