June: Pimms and Strawberry evening

Unfortunately our prayers for a warm and sunny evening were not answered, but the rain did not stop us from having a lovely evening, with plenty of time to chat and catch up with friends. There were masses and masses of strawberries, cream and shortbread, unlimited Pimms and great company, what more could we wish for?

Enormous thanks to Sue and Jean who did a wonderful job in organising and arranging the evening, and preparing for us all during the day. Also thanks to Sue and Peter for their hospitality and inviting everyone into their home. Just a shame we couldn’t make use of Sue’s beautiful garden. Jean’s Pimm’s recipe was a huge success, daren’t ask how much was drunk, but the jugs were never empty!!

We were pleased to welcome Suzanne Woodburn, Chair of Tangles, to the meeting, and hope that she will be able to join us whenever she can.

We have received two 41 Club invitations from Mac and Roger:

  1. Summer Barbecue on August 14th at Brenda and Rob Carter’s. Tangent has been asked to help with catering. I will send more details as soon as I have them and would be grateful if you could let me know if you can offer some help. The cost is £7.50 per head for food and we are asked to bring our own drink.
  2. Visit to Aston Hall on September 11th at 11.00 am. This is a private visit. The cost of £20.00 per person includes entry to the Hall, a guided tour with a guide and guide booklets, car parking and a soup and sandwich lunch at the Hall.

If you would like to attend either or both events please email Mac Cummings on mac.magpies@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Although these details are included in June’s Bulletin I am sending them to everyone in a separate email just to make sure you all receive them.

Please note that there is a change of date for our August Meeting. Our visit to Elford Gardens is now on August 20th.

Pearl has already emailed details of our July meeting. Unfortunately I can’t make our next meeting as I am away. I would have loved to have joined the Ghost Walk and hope that you all have a great evening.
