August 2023 newsletter

Published by AbingdonFitzharrysWI on

I know we don’t meet in August, but life goes on. Today it’s raining which is good for the garden, but as the song goes The sun will come out tomorrow, as long as it’s not 40 degrees plus.
We all enjoyed the July meeting, I think. Old bottles and stuff with Stuart Cummings,  followed by a fantastic Show and Tell by the Art Group, now 10 years old, led by Viv Lowe. Such talent on display.

A big welcome to Doreen, Dorothy and Linda who joined us this month.

Garden party – How lucky we were with the weather. Super afternoon. Thank you to Sheila for the treasure hunt. Other help with the raffle and serving was also very welcome. Not forgetting the committee, who made cakes and all the donations for the raffle and sales table. You are all lovely.

Monthly meeting Tuesday 12 September  David Busby will bring his bees, and produce to sell. We would all be in a right pickle were it not for the bees. So small and yet so vital to the whole world. I certainly plan to stock up on local honey etc.

Take care and all the best Trine
