A festive lunch today at the Carpenter’s Arms. Lovely food, lovely people. How lucky we are to have such a fantastic club! Happy Christmas!
20/20 Mission’s aim is to provide sustainable sanitaryware for girls and ladies and to ensure that the girls do not miss out on their education by having to be absent from school for a week whilst they have their periods. 20/20 Mission charity runs alongside SiaB and Water Survival Boxes who are based in Frome with Rotarian Tony Quinn as one of the directors. Water Survival Boxes put the sanitary goods directly into the boxes which are then sent to disaster areas all over the world. The sanitary ware for these boxes is made by a group of ladies based in Frome.
With the encouragement of President Sandra, our ladies decided to give a helping hand. After a bit of time taken up with actually getting started, we were soon on a role. It turned out to be an enjoyable morning with plenty of laughter and chat.
President Mike Hedges of Chelwood Bridge Rotary was our guest at our our Monthly Meeting in November. He gave us a very entertaining talk on his life and career in the Police Force.

Two of our club members at the meeting. Between them is Helen Morrall from Life Education Wessex who gave a talk about their “Life Education Programme” regarding period poverty.
This time, after a good lunch, we went to see the play of “My Cousin Rachael”. We had read the book by Daphne DuMaurier at our Book Club and were looking forward to seeing the stage version. We were not disapointed! It was superb. Full of intrigue and, just as with the book , you were left wondering at the end. A very enjoyable afternnon .
This month, for the first time, we held our meeting at lunch time. We had a visit from our District Chair Maureen Nethaway who told us about her life (she has moved house 14 times) and her aims for the coming year. A very enjoyable afternoon.
This week was time for our monthly book Club. We had all read the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Back. Very interesting to hear the views from our Ladies on this very thought provoking book and the message it conveyed. We’ll see how we get on with this month’s book.
