In mid-November a small group of Capel Ladies enjoyed another afternoon tea and some retail therapy at Corncraft Gift Shop and Tearoom, Monks Eleigh. It was a chance to do a bit of early Christmas shopping and relax over cakes and coffees!
Our Christmas meal was able to go ahead this year – and thirty-one ladies enjoyed a slap-up lunch at The Brook, Washbrook. The staff were very efficient and attentive and everyone enjoyed the festive food and the chance to celebrate after missing out last year because of Covid.
One of our members – Sue Maynard – was also celebrating a “Special” Birthday, and after a chorus of “Happy Birthday” our Chairlady Mary Butters presented her with a potted plant! Altogether it was a very happy occasion!
Coming up we have our Christmas Social, and then, in January, a visit to the Orchard Players’ show, “Musical of Dreams”. Lots to look forward to – why don’t you join us?
