Diamond Jubilee Tea Dance Concert
Sunday 27th May 4pm – 7pm
This took place and if you missed it………….it was AMAZING!
The Dawn Chorus singers really were fantastic, and the afternoon tea was scrumptious! If ever another one of these is arranged you really should try and come along. A great afternoon was had by all and we made in the region of £600 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The bereavement group trip to Sutton Hoo was most successful, I think due to the fact that, for once, Jane had got the weather right! We had smooth journeys both ways, it was very well organised by The National Trust, lovely cakes, a beautiful outlook, fascinating exhibition and interesting guides. There was a little raucous element to the day, I think that I will never get on a coach again without remembering Val’s comments!
Here’s to the next outing.
