On the 18th October nineteen members of Capel Ladies set off to M&Co at Hadleigh for a Style Party Evening, where we were welcomed with drinks and nibbles to sustain us through our shopping night. Kayleigh and her staff were so friendly and helpful, encouraging us to try on clothes we wouldn’t normally consider.
Lots of us tried on various outfits and got differing opinions from everyone as to whether or not they suited us! It was a lot of fun, and by the end of the evening many of us came away with purchases, so at our next club meeting there will probably be lots of members sporting their new clothes!
Afterwards some of us decided to move on to the George to end the evening with company and chat. We can recommend this if you want an evening choosing clothes with friends, as we all had a great time!
On 4th October 2018, Capel Ladies Club celebrated its Golden Anniversary, marking 50 years since its formation in September 1968.
Nearly 50 members attended the evening which began with wine and canapés in the Vine Lounge. This was followed by a delicious two-course meal served in the Library which was decorated with gold trimmings and bunting, with gold cloths and centre-pieces of flowers and balloons on the tables!
After the meal everyone retired to the Vine Lounge again and the evening drew to a close with the cutting of a celebration cake, (baked and iced by Audrey and Di respectively), and then the draw for the Golden Raffle took place.
Current Chairlady Di Barker gave a short speech thanking the committee and all the members for their continuing support which she said has been the backbone and reason for the longevity of the Club over the years.
In spite of its vintage Capel Ladies Club still has the same original aims – to provide the opportunity for ladies of all ages in the Capel area to gather socially, listen to invited Speakers and enjoy trips out as well as raising money for charities and supporting the local community.
