August 2nd 2011 - Trip to Althorp.
16 members are Northampton bound to visit Diana's home and burial place. I have visited before and can highly recommend this beautiful family home.

Nearly New Sale in Pakenham Village Hall on October 1st 2011. This sale is back by popular demand to sell a vast range of nearly new designer clothes and shoes to raise money for equipment for Nickys Way ( the childrens bereavement section ) at St Nicholas Hospice.
