In addition to our meeting of the 3rd December we will be meeting on 10th December 7.00pm for carol singing at The Gate. Families, friends and anyone else welcome.
The speaker for our well attended open meeting on the 19th November was Caroline Povey. She spoke about her travels and experiences as a member of the Olympic Great Britain and England trap (shooting) teams. She brought along momentoes of her travels including her Bronze Commonwealth Medal which she won in Glasgow.
We raised a further £320 for our charities.
In addition to our regular meetings we are hosting a number of additional fundraising events during 2018/2019. These will be in support of Helen’s Trust and the Air Ambulance. The first of these will be a coffee morning at Diana Dakin’s house, 49 Riber View Close, Tansley on Friday 14th September from 10.30 to 12.30. Coffee will be £2.00 and there will be a small raffle.
25 members were picked up by coach from various parts of Tansley and set off on a mystery tour which ended at The Cock Inn, Mugginton. It was one of the glorious evenings in July and we all sat in the beautiful garden and enjoyed a relaxed Pimms before going inside to have our meal.
After a very convivial (and sometimes quite loud) evening we were all returned to Tansley feeling very much better for our evening out.
Our next meeting is the Summer Outing on July 2nd. A coach journey to a surprise destination and meal.
