Annual Meal

Tuesday was our annual meal and EGM. It was another warm and bright evening.We arrived from ^.30 and began with the EGM. This identified the officers and committee for the AGM in September. After this about thirty of us sat down for a very enjoyable 3 course meal and coffee. A lovely way to finish our "year". Below are 3 photos of those attending and also the newsletter. Next meting could be at Hobbycraft on sat

4th Aug to celebrate National stitch Day.I will not be at the Sept AGM but might remember to send in my piece for Mollys Cup. Enjoy the sunshine.
