AT THE GENERAL MEETING ON 15 MARCH, WE GOT THE PARTY STARTED. WE WERE JOINED BY THE SE REGION TRUSTEE, HILVARY ROBINSON, AND WE HAD A GREAT CAKE THAT WAS KINDLY MADE BY CHARMIAN! WE HAD ANOTHER CAKE ON 8 APRIL!

OUR 10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

We celebrated our 10th Anniversary at the Mountbatten Centre on 8 April 2017.

The behind the scenes activity had been very intense. The beautiful flower arrangements, the serviettes, and all the balloons for the balloon trail and in the hall were wonderfully colour co-ordinated.

We had two special guests: Pam Jones, National Chairman, and Sally Ingledew, our local Network Manager.  They were introduced to us by Beryl, who made a short speech. Pam Jones then made a jocular response. They were pleasantly impressed with all the hard work undertaken and the friendliness of all the members.

Charmian made a delicious cake, which Christine and Pam Jones ceremoniously cut, with photographs taken by Duncan Shepherd.

Then it was time for the reason we were there, to indulge in sandwiches and cream scones, and very tasty they were!  Conversation was flowing well too, and a good afternoon was had by all. A great big thank you goes to everyone who made the afternoon so memorable.
