Stop press: details of Autumn Dinner (non- members welcome) below.

Thirty one of our members have just returned from our twin town in France, Octeville sur Mer especially timed in September this year (instead of our usual May) to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of Octeville by the Allies in 1944. But you will have to wait till the next edition to hear about that.

Forecasts of high winds and rain threatened to make off with our gazebos, so the Members' Garden Party took place indoors on August 17.  However, spirits were undampened as 40 members shared a happy afternoon. The welcome glass of wine was barely needed for conversation to flow. Then - sandwiches, tea and cakes, cream tea.  Our thanks to all the committee, especially Estelle, for the varied delights.

Our Autumn Dinner is on Saturday October 19th (19 pp. for three courses). All forms and cheques must be returned to: Mrs P Clitheroe, 3 Edgar Wallace Place, Bourne End SL8 5LG, or paulinev@live.co.net. Non-members are very welcome to attend this friendly occasion (20 pp.) ask any member for details, or phone Wendy Langford on 01628 520065.
