On July 10 some of our members went on a coach trip to Waterperry Gardens, near Oxford. They were given a tour of the house and time to explore the delightful gardens on a warm and enjoyable day. The next coach trip is to Ludlow Food Festival on Friday, September 7. Would members please put their names down and pay before August 21.

Our Extend classes continue successfully but we are still searching for a volunteer to train as another instructor.

On July 24 we held our Summer Social at the Town Hall with the usual delicious food provided by the committee. Many thanks to them for their continued hard work. Entertainment was provided by Carl Fisher ("Forever Elvis") who despite the heat, performed a range of Elvis's songs, much to the delight of the audience. Our guests for the day were Sue Amor, Deputy Mayor and Marlene Sale, Deputy Mayor's Consort.

On August 28 at 1.30pm at the Town Hall, we will be having a Forum meeting with two speakers; one on memory loss and the other on Macular Degeneration. We urge all members to attend this meeting, as these conditions could affect any one of us as we get older, as well as family or friends. Visitors, of course, are also welcome.
