Stop press! All are welcome to our quiz with supper on June 15 at St Dunstan's Church hall.

In April 25 members explored the little town of Olney north of Milton Keynes and it seems a number were surprised. Estelle Huxley writes: "I'd never been to Olney before, and I wonder why, because it's such a fascinating town. The museum was so interesting, particularly with the volunteer guides dressed in costume. Places to eat were so varied, it was difficult to choose, and there were lots of interesting shops not forgetting the very attractive church and the history of the Olney hymns. I really enjoyed the day and would like to return maybe to the Dickens Christmas Market."

Former association members Viv and Brian Pollock, who moved to Olney a few years ago, gave us a great welcome to the Cowper and Newton Museum, a Georgian house where the poet William Cowper once lived. Olney is famous for Amazing Grace, written by his friend John Newton, and for the first pancake race, still run annually to the church.

 So what next for us? Be quick if you do not yet have tickets for the quiz with fish and chip supper on Saturday June 15, but we shall be delighted to see you and your friends.  Tickets beforehand 8 members, 9 non-members. For information, forms or tickets contact Wendy Langford, langford@thamesinternet.com or 01628 520065.
