FORGET ME NOTS by Janet Fountain
Thirteen members and friends enjoyed Ten Pin Bowling at Guyhirn on 25th April. Ernie Fountain won the trophy only just beating Janice Munden. Lunch followed at The Cobblestones in March.
As he was brought up in the village he knew many of us and our surroundings. His little stories caused a lot of laughter. On 7th June we had the Upwood Handbell Ringers to entertain us. They were originally planned to visit us in March but due to the extreme weather conditions postponed until now. Deanna Phillips, the conductress told us about the history of their club and going to Whitechapel to collect the bells. This was very interesting and the group played several songs, after which two of our members had a try at ringing the bells. Our annual quiz and cheese and wine evening will be on Thursday, 5th July. The competition is any item beginning with the letter F. David Palmer, the auctioneer will now be coming for the October meeting instead of August when we will have a Beetle Drive and the competition the letter G.

The Birthday Party in May was a huge success. Darren Tomkins from The Mad Cat at Pidley prepared and served a sausage and mash supper followed by apple crumble and custard. This year was a different format as previously we had always done our own catering for this event. The entertainment that followed was brilliant. Julian (Charlie Chaplin) came again after a break from entertaining.
