Newsletter - 13 July 2018
From the President:
Thank you to Janet Norris, Ella Beer, Perelle Scales, Niek Van Vucht and Tim Davis for contributing nice food for the Anniversary Pairs morning tea on Thursday. All those present appreciated it. Thank you also to the sit-out pairs who worked in the kitchen – a most helpful staff corps.
With school holidays underway we had 40 (very) young people, accompanied by parents and grandparents, in the club on Tuesday at Bridge4Kids. What a delight to see them. There will be another session next week on Tuesday 17 July at 10am.
A Sewer is needed (i.e. someone who sews!)
Sewing as in embroidery…
Ian has an idea about the ‘sit-out’ bears, so please chat to Ian Robinson if you would like to help.
