THE meeting on Friday evening in the village hall was the start of the new year, a year when the club celebrates its 45th birthday.
Improvements to the village hall are well in-hand with the completion of an excellent kitchen and with new toilets almost ready. These facilities are greatly appreciated by the club. Six new members paid their subscriptions and they, and two visitors, were particularly welcomed by the chairman Pam Hayes.
The demonstrator was Judith Barham, from Norwich, and her title was 'take a break', during which she took the audience on her travels around the world.
A vote of thanks was given by vice-chairman Elizabeth Miller.
An exciting programme for the forthcoming year has been booked and the open meeting in November should be the highlight with national demonstrator John Chennell, from Wellingborough.
The charity for the year is Cancer Research UK, chosen in memory of members Avril Andrews and Janet Porter who both sadly died last year. There will be a plant stall at the next meeting, on Friday, May 18, for this charity and members are asked to bring along surplus plants for sale. Julie Woods returns to the club to demonstrate 'pass the popcorn'. Visitors are most welcome (fee £3).
