Swans W.IJune Meeting

We met at Stapleford Village Hall (our erstwhile home) for our June Meeting and made good use of the pretty garden for our annual Garden Party.   Our Meeting date fell on the 6th. June - the 80th. Anniversary of the D.Day Landings.   We marked the occasion with readings and poetry relevant to the day, and many members recounted touching childhood memories of that time, which brought it to life for us.  We dedicated a table to a display of interesting  D.Day memorabilia enhanced by a special "Lest We Forget" planter created and designed by one of us.   The same member generously donated a lovely 1940's china bowl of mixed plants for our raffle.

Many of us wore our summer dresses which brought colour to the sometimes rather cloudy afternoon.  Our President could not be with us, so a committee member very ably stepped in, chairing the meeting beautifully and keeping all the wheels very much on the wagon!

The usual business and reports were attended to and dates put in our diaries for forthcoming events including Scrabble and Cuppa Club.  The Food Bank box was filled to overflowing and delivered to the Trussell Trust after the meeting.

Many of us wore decorated sun hats which added to the garden party atmosphere.   Our Flower of the Month competition had so many entries, it was a truly glorious display - every beautiful bloom a winner!

We all lingered over the delicious tea, themed towards the 1940's, but with some highly indulgent additions!

We meet at Wilton Community Centre at 2.00 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month.   If you would like to come along, you would be given a warm welcome, just 'phone Caroline on 01722 792759 for more information.   Our July Meeting falls on 4th. July which is election day, so we shall move to the Wilton Pavilion, Castle Meadow, Castle Lane, Wilton SP2 0HG for that meeting.
