As you are reading this no doubt Capel Ladies Club members will have enjoyed their delayed Summer Social in the Vine Lounge, listening to Jazz Galore and tucking into their shared buffet supper! Let’s hope it really IS the start of things getting back to normal again! More details of the evening and photos will be posted soon.
We finished our summer meetings with a delicious lunch out at The Brook in Washbrook. The weather was on our side, and many of us sat in the garden to have our lunch, while another group decided to stay indoors and avoid the risk of sunburn. However, the groups did mingle in and out to catch up with each other, and there was also a special guest to chat to, as ex-member Joan Molle had joined us from Stowmarket!
A new season marks a new start – and a new name! It is proposed that CLC will now stand for:
CAPEL LADIES CONNECT!
(although, at time of writing, this is still in the melting pot… watch this space!)
We are trying to change our image and become more vibrant and interactive to all age-ranges, and – as the new name implies – to CONNECT with both our current and potential new members! To this end we will be holding an Open Evening on 16th September! Look out for our advert in Capel Capers this month, and for posters around the village!
Ladies of all ages are warmly invited to this FREE event – non-members very welcome! You can drop in any time from 7.30pm to meet our friendly committee and members, have a coffee/tea and some cake, as well as peruse local fashion and craft stalls from two enterprising local ladies.
Kristie Barbouti will have a selection of versatile clothing and accessories for sale, from her online business ZovaChic, and you can also discover Lynn McConnachie’s range of innovative ‘seed’ cards, and other creations, made in support of the BrainTumour Trust.
Why not come along on 16th September at 7.30pm to Capel Library and see what’s on offer? Bring a friend along too!
With all this excitement there’s another event to look forward to! Our October 7th meeting will host the extremely charismatic vet Brian Faulkner, whose amusing anecdotes about the ‘Life of a Vet’ are sure to make you smile!
Hope we’ve shown you there’s something for everyone and lots to enjoy – plus good company of course! See you there!
