Here we are back again after missing the last edition, with renewed vigour and exciting news about the Friendship Club programme of activities for the coming months.
We must say many thank yous. First to Angela and Barbara who took over the planning of the club events and programme for a while, for their hard work and for giving some great new ideas and speakers. And to our very small team of cooks who are managing to produce great meals under a lot of pressure. This is our chief worry as the club really wants to provide a hot home cooked meal to our members, so if any readers can spare a Monday morning to offer some help or cook for up to thirty very grateful older people please contact us at the number below. Pop in to see if you like us any Monday.
Weve had lots of activities recently including a wonderful talk about alpacas, another by Bob from SSAFA, a pancake tossing competition, and a Green Day (see Photo) to celebrate St. Patricks day, including a green auction which raised almost £50 for our funds and a hilarious Irish Bingo game run by Mike and Judith, who also cooked Irish stew for lunch. Weve had Oscar quizzes, book sales, a Feelie bag quiz, Bingo and raffles plus a visit by Steve selling some gorgeous pashminas.
We have another Bon Marche fashion show coming up with models from among our members, and a village stroll. Our trips for this year are in June , when we will visit the Huntingdon Garden and Leisure Centre, and September when we will once again take the vintage train ride from Holt to Sheringham in Norfolk. We are very happy to welcome new members and if you or anyone you know may benefit from joining our friendly Monday group, held in Glinton Village Hall, please contact Barbara on 01733 253078.
