It was a real treat for sixteen members of Capel Ladies Club to meet up for the first time since Lockdown began, and by all accounts the last, now, for a while! The occasion was Afternoon Tea in the Bluebell Tea Room at the By Pass Nurseries, where Mandy and her team made us all very welcome.
We had finger sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, and cakes too, accompanied by unlimited cups of tea and coffee – delicious! The service was excellent and came with plenty of smiles and everyone enjoyed the occasion very much!
It was especially nice to see Molly Johansen with us, as she has recently had a bout of very poor health, and it was good to see she is on the way to recovery. At the end of the afternoon Rose Chiverton thanked Mandy and her team, and confirmed that Capel Ladies Club will definitely be continuing into 2021 with some new committee members joining our ranks.
The only unfortunate thing is that we won’t be able to meet as a whole club for at least six months or more, thanks to Covid-19! Oh well, perhaps we should split into breakaway groups of six and have our own mini-meetings on the green near the war memorial……!
Just joking, of course – but roll on next Spring when perhaps we’ll be able to gather in the Library once again at 7.45pm. on the first Thursday of the month!
Meanwhile – Keee-eep smiling! (And remember to wash those hands!)
