Monthly Meetings

22nd August

This was our annual Cream Tea Event with scones, jam and clotted cream, tea and coffee being served by the Committee and some very welcome volunteers. The weather was fine and allowed us to use the garden behind the church as well as inside.

Before we got stuck into the scones, our new Chairman, Tony Smith was announced and introduced to those present.

There is normally no speaker at the Cream Tea Event but this year, at short notice, we were contacted by Andy Barson of Leicestershire County Council Local Area Co-ordination who asked to give a 5 minute talk on the services which his department can offer. They can help isolated or vulnerable people to be put in contact with the right people if they need help, whether that is local services or voluntary organisations. Andy can be reached at Ashby Library where he is based. Individuals or their family or friends can make the initial contact.

Ann Thomson reminded us that tickets for the Christmas lunch will go on sale next month. A non-refundable deposit of £10 is required. It will be held at Willesley Park Golf Club on 7th December at 12 noon for 12.30 pm at a cost of £24 for 4 courses + coffee
