Carnival thank yous…

A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make yesterday such a great event … all the bunting knitters, the stall helpers and of course all of our wonderfully generous members who donated little toys for our hook a bag or sweets for our prizes.

The smiles on the faces of the children as they hooked a bag of goodies were worth all our efforts!

See you Tuesday!

Beetles and Beatles …

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.
