THIS month, 28 members attended the meeting at the Newmarket Hat Hire at Trinity Farm in Fordham. Members listened to an interesting talk on how the hats were made and the history of different milliners who made them.

Although some could be very expensive to buy, by hiring them you could look fantastic in a designer model to complete your outfit. On display were handbags and jewellery, all to match the hats. There was a great deal of laughter among the members who had great fun trying on the hats.

We had tea and coffee in the farmhouse, and the owner judged our home-made hat competition, which was won by Jean Bowcock in a very fetching blue number, decorated with rose buds.

At the next meeting on April 3, the speaker is Linda Scoles who will tell her story about 'around the world in 23 years' when she accompanied her husband, who was in the American military. The competition is for a travel memento. The meeting begins at 7.30pm at the Arkenstall Centre. Do come and join us this as this will be a very interesting talk.
