Review

 In April our demonstrator was Pippa Brown and we did chair exercises which was both fun and beneficial.

At the May meeting we discussed the resolutions regarding bus services and cervical smear tests. We had time to chat and buy items from the jumble sale stall.

On May 22nd it was the group meeting, this year held at Gringley Village Hall. The speaker was Lesley Smith, excellent as always and this time in the character of Peggy Knight (S.O.E)

Our June outdoor meeting was an afternoon visit to The Hallcroft Bowls Club. After heavy rain in the morning we fortunate to able to attend. It was the member’s choice to either spectate or play and we had friendly and helpful coaches all arranged by Joan Mather. Afterwards we had tea, cake and biscuits in the clubhouse.
