The  SUNDAY SOCIAL – Every Fourth Sunday of Each Month – Except September 2021 when it will be on the 19th 

Welcome back to everyone who has managed to make it to the last two meetings in July and August.  It was wonderful to see so many of you.

In July we were delighted to welcome back the famous Bill Evans to entertain us with his video 📺and comedy 🤣😂😆clips then, with the gorgeous weather, we were able to take refreshments ☕🍪outside.

August saw Peter Gateley giving us a wonderful presentation on Garden birds which was very interesting.  Sadly the weather was not at its best but everyone was happy to continue catching up with each other over 🍪 and ☕

19 September 2021

In September we will be having a bit of variety with some poetry, a quiz, perhaps a game or two of Bingo and maybe even some music to sing along to.

We look forward to seeing you there at 2-4pm
