It’s MPerfumeay already and this month we welcome local business owner Sally Hornsey from Plush Folly for a talk and interactive demonstration on the Changing face of Perfume.  This will be Sally’s second visit to our group, as she was so good we thought we get her back again.

At the suggestion of one of our members we will start a magazine swap.  Please bring along any old magazines that you think another member might like to read.  All magazines left at the end of the evening will be put into the recycling bin in the car park at the end of the meeting

Rumpy Pumpy

Keen eyed Lesley spotted this advertised in the WI Life.  We didn’t really know what to except from a musical based on the WI campaign for better rights for ‘working girls’. performed at a theatre above a pub in Clapham

Rumpy Pumpy

But it turned out to be a hoot and at the end of the show we even met the writer, Barbara Jane Mackie.

It’s on for a couple more  nights if you’d like to see for yourself
