Summer Social

Had a brilliant day at our Summer social earlier this month.  Another delicious buffet (thank you Lord Sainsbury!) with extra strawberries and Kathryn's delicious vanilla mold.



There was a good display of entries for our Summer Bell Trophy competition "Land and Sea", and it was won by Carole.  The winner was in a dead heat with Patricia's lovely little picture, but a second ballot confirmed her win.








Sue congratulates Carole on her win.

The "upside-down raffle", organized by Kathryn, was next.

A tempting display of mystery parcels!
Lesley looks delighted with her pick - but will she be able to keep it?

Christine commits Sue T's prize to memory, just in case!


Shall I or shan't I - yes I think I will!


With the "upside-down" raffle decided to most people's satisfaction - on to the Rainbow raffle, with was won by Lesley, Alison and our visitor, Jennifer.  Alison was also the lucky winner of a beautiful embroidery book kindly donated by Sue S.

Our final pleasure was to present Jenny with a chrysanthemum plant as our 'helpful member'.  Jenny is a relatively new member, but has been a helpful and cheerful presence since the first so we were very happy to recognize her.



Finally, Eileen gave a very nice little speech to thank the committee for organizing such a lovely social occasion.



Now we are on holiday until September, when it all begins again.  Happy Summer everyone.  J
