September Newsletter

Hello friends

Oh my goodness, I can hardly believe we’re back in the hall at last! I am so looking forward to some degree of normality, although can I respectfully request that you do one of those uncomfortable covid test thingies before you come, just to be on the safe side? We won’t insist that everybody wears masks, although you are, of course, welcome to don one, should you wish.

So, next Thursday the 9th at 8pm will be our AGM, where once again we vote for our new president. I’m not sure how long I’ve been president now but it must be verging on a hundred years. I’m happy to keep going until I need a bath chair and ear trumpet (might have been reading too many historical novels) but if anybody else fancies a go, do give us a wave.

Apart from the businessy stuff, the committee are going to be baking you lots of cakes, so don’t forget a mug, plate and fork. We thought it would also be fun to have a session of ‘show and tell’.  Have you taken up any new crafts over lockdown? If so, please  bring in anything you’ve made for us to admire. Or anything half made that you need help with! Any other new hobbies you’d like to tell us about? Or a new recipe you could cook and bring in? The second category is products you think are outstanding and would like to tell us about. Cosmetics, cleaning stuff, obscure cooking ingredients – if you would like to recommend it, we would like to hear. I know some of you are more than happy to stand up with the mic but others would rather walk on hot coals. If you are in the latter category, I’ll do the talking for you. And if you can’t think of a single thing to show or talk about, just come for the craic.

See you next Thursday

Big love
