24th July 2018 
Annual General Meeting
Departing from the format of previous years, we will have a speaker this year preceded by a short business AGM
How To Grow Old Disgracefully
The Dowager Lady Crabtree
Lady Crabtree takes a whimsical look at growing older and shows that the advancing years are to be enjoyed, rather than endured. With a mixture of amusing personal anecdotes, comic monologues and sage advice, Lady Crabtree shares her wry observations about various aspects of ageing, such as dealing with fashion for the over-50s; health and beauty; failing memory, lost glasses… and how to fight back against the modern age.  In this celebration of maturity, Lady Crabtree will reveal that there are many advantages to growing older!

Visitors interested in joining us are welcome!

You will find the full programme 
until the end of 2018 and into 2019 HERE
There will be no monthly meeting or email newsletter in August. We look forward to seeing you at the September Monthly Meeting

25th September 2018

In the meanwhile, enjoy the good weather. Long may it last with perhaps just a little bit of rain in the night for the gardeners amongst us.
