October 9th 2014 – From Costume Designer To A Personal Fashion Business
Amanda Sutherland joined us for the evening to tell her personal story of how life from the London School of Fashion evolved into thriving fashion design business.
Amanda was an inspiration to us all, a young woman who had achieved her goal in life by determination, flair and hard work. Her headgear designs were amazing and her ability to create fantastic jewellery out of empty coke cans awe inspiring. We were delighted to welcome some guests to the meeting
Tea was served and made by Margaret H, Julie and Kate, brilliant eats girls, thank you.

October 11th 2014 – Autumn Jumble Sale
Thanks to all who worked so hard to make the event a resounding success, and to all the generous people who donated the amazing range of goods to sell. It was a complete revelation to a jumble sale novice like me I can only describe the first hour as a stampede. We made a clear profit of over a £300.00, which will ensure the best of speakers for the coming year and allow us the extra funds to meet the hire charges of our village hall for forthcoming events and functions. All the left over goods were donated to Age Concern, thank you Mark and Kay for their immediate delivery
