Here comes Summer !!!!
June 15th 2021 – Outdoor Committee Meeting
RiverhutIt was wonderful to meet up again face to face on a balmy summer evening in the River Cottage garden. My new river hut proved a bit too small for 8 socially distanced members so after an inspection of the new premises we relocated to the patio.
Obviously due to the governments lockdown release plans our main discussion topic was the July garden party supper evening. We have decided to go ahead adhering to the 30 people outdoor maximum. Our venue has plenty of outdoor space so self-distancing and numbers should not be a problem and the prospect of an evening of togetherness will be fabulous. We are also desperate to celebrate our 100th birthday with a cake and a drink to the next 100 years.!!!!!

We now have confirmation of our August speaker Amanda Sutherland the highly talented fashion designer who will be joining us for the third time, with all her new creations and fantastic sales table.

Our love and get well wishes go to Anthea, Barbara and Sandy this month, three of our members who have had recent stays in hospital.

Restrictions permitting we hope to go ahead with our Annual Macmillan Coffee Morning in September, probably just for village residents and friends to raise much needed funds for this brilliant charity.

Happy Summer days...
