The weather for Fun Day 2018 couldn’t have been better! The sun shone all day and although there was a slight breeze it didn’t affect the gazebo round our stall. After a change last year we reverted to our usual theme of home-made/home-grown produce and plants. There was a lovely selection of cakes, biscuits and scones, plus jams and chutneys; and a good number of plants and shrubs as well, with some fresh rhubarb thrown in! There were plenty of helpers on the day and we raised a whopping £118.00 which was an excellent result!
As 2018 is our 50th Anniversary Year it was appropriate for those members who had any gold-coloured items of clothing to wear them at our Summer Social. Keeping the same theme, we had two quizzes organized by Shirley Ward; one which included the word “Gold” in either the question or the answer, and one which was a “Guess their Identities” photo quiz, where – displayed on the walls of the Vine Lounge – was a collection of photos of present members – “Golden Girls” – taken 50 years ago! Both quizzes were challenging and the winners certainly deserved their prizes!
Mary Butters was the expert when it came to identifying those glamorous young ladies, she managed to guess 28 out of 31 correctly, and the Gold Quiz Champions were Colette, Averil and Trisha! As usual there was a mouth-watering buffet consisting of a delicious selection of savoury and sweet treats provided by each of us, plus a complimentary glass of something to wash it down with. There was lots of chatter and laughter throughout the evening, and a chance to win even more prizes from our Raffle. A jolly time was had by all!
