Our first meeting of the New Year. After a delicious lunch our Speaker was Edmund Prideaux from Keynsham Talking Newspaper, pictured here with our President Sandra Blair. K.T.N. is a registered charity and is free to people who are unable to read newsprint either through poor eyesight or blindness. It enables them to enjoy local news from Bristol, Bath and further afield. There is also have a magazine section with a wide choice of topics from historic places to recipes together with information on benefits and entitlements. It is supplied on a memory stick and is delivered free by the Royal Mail. A very interesting talk and so good to hear of something that is available in the local community.
This coming Thursday we have our annual tea party for elderly local residents. It will be a busy afternoon with all of us involved, offering home made cakes, sandwiches etc.
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.
