Our Summer meeting was held on Monday July 15th, 2pm in the Town Hall. The Vicar, The Rev'd Philip Edge led the prayers, sadly for the last time as he is leaving in September.
We had a special afternoon tea done by the committee. Our Deanery Leaders Mrs Rosemary Horton was present.
The tables were laid with very pretty eclectic china on hand embroidered tablecloths. Pots of sweet peas and delicate greenery straight from the garden were done by myself and Donna.
The waitresses Mary, Phyllis, Donna and Kath wore lace edge white aprons, looking very professional as did the ladies in the kitchen, Joyce, Phyllis and Heather laying our the food and making the tea and coffee.
The food was absolutely first class, lovely finger sandwiches and crisps, scones with strawberries an cream, melt in the mouth meringues, lemon cake and sponge cake etc, all home made by our own members. We were entertained by our member Mrs Mavis Griffiths and our guest, Beryl Gilbert, who both did monologues—Mavis "The Magna Charter" and Beryl "Albert and the Lion".
Kath had a bring and buy stall and raised £50 for Mothers' Union funds.
We all had a very happy an enjoyable fun afternoon.
