Hello, I do hope you have all had a good summer in spite of the rain. Eight of us certainly had rain on our WI outing to Greys Court which included a surprise tour of Berinsfield. We all made the most of it and had a really good time. It is well worth a visit for the gardens alone. I am definitely going back to see the wisteria in bloom and Christmas is meant to be good as well.

Wednesday 20 September – Lunch Club 12.30 pm at The Spread Eagle, Northcourt Road. Contact Pauline Claridge.

Our next monthly meeting is on Tuesday 12 September. David Busby will bring his bees to show us, and also 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.
We also plan to do a ‘’Your 5 a day” raffle at the meeting. PLEASE bring one piece of fruit or vegetable for our unprocessed food raffle.
