August 2021 report

The good news from Capel Ladies is that we are most definitely a fully-functioning Club again, even though, to date, we have not been able to hold any indoor meetings. Our big disappointment was having to postpone our Summer Social and entertainment with Jazz Galore in July because of the extended date for the relaxation of Covid restrictions, which meant no large indoor gatherings. Nevertheless, we are still looking forward to this on the first Thursday of September, so it’ll be a great way to start the new season!

Meanwhile we have enjoyed two coffee and cake outings, to The Milk Shed at Sproughton, and The Stables at Martlesham. Both venues sound very rustic, and indeed they were peaceful locations but with very tasty refreshments!

Our five intrepid scarecrow-makers had great fun creating a very glamorous lady complete with bling and leopard-skin heels! She cut quite a dash in Chairlady Mary Butter’s front garden during the Scarecrow Trail! Hope she gave people a few chuckles too.

Our next meeting is a lunch at The Brook, Washbrook, where at last we will all be able to sit together indoors! It’s the final fixture of the season, so fingers crossed we’ll be able to go back to regular meetings in the autumn.

Wishing you all a relaxing and restriction-free sunny summer!

See you in September! (as the song goes!) New members always welcome!
