I hope you are all enjoying your hot and sunny Bank Holiday weekend! Apologies for the late arrival of  this month’s email – I’ve been walking round bluebell sites in the New Forest and lost track of time!


Tuesday’s meeting will be a fun Beetle Drive! with musical accompaniment from the Fab Four – courtesy of Spotify.

We will also collecting up your donations of small items for our ‘Grab-a-Bag’ stall at this year’s Hampton Fair and looking for volunteers to help out on the day. Good as new toys (inc MacDonalds toys), stationery, toiletries, small decorations and wrapped sweets will all be welcomed with open arms. Thank you.
