July News: The regular meeting made way for the President’s Lunch and Boules Competition.
This was the third such President’s lunch with 63 members and guests gathering for a sumptuous buffet lunch catered for by Beech Tree Caterers.
Ordinarily, suitably fed and watered all would exit the hall to compete for the Boules Cup. Unfortunately, nature chose to slip in a soaking wet day between two gloriously sunny days and the boules had to be called off.
As with all well organised events, there was a back-up plan that to fell to Jim Thompson to present a mind searching quiz. Each member of the winning team received a small monetary reward.
The day was drawn to a close with the customary raffle draw and for the first time, a lucky ticket number holder won a voucher for Waitrose/John Lewis. Each lady was presented with a small gift from Lyn, the President’s wife as they left.
