After the March meeting a group will go directly to the Town Hall, where, after their picnic lunch, they will don tabards, and, armed with litter-picking equipment, will join the Mayor for an hour spent sprucing up Beccles. This will be part of 'Clean for the Queen' - to celebrate HM's 90th birthday. If you can join them, please email or phone Judith.
If you are collecting stamps for Hearing Dogs, please remember to separate 'British' and 'Overseas' stamps - many thanks!
We were delighted to hear of Beccles Coop's offer to provide refreshments for our monthly meetings, plus additional supplies for special events and raffle prizes - thank you Coop! We are also the lucky recipients of a Top Tips booklet from Market Harborough WI, who are 100 miles from us and had donated the booklet to all such WIs as their centenary event. What a clever idea! Both the Coop and Market Harborough had contacted us via our new website!
Our speaker this month was a welcome return by Mr Terry Weatherly who gave us a fascinating insight into the churches and characters of 'the Saints' - one of which is a 'thankful' parish - from which all those who went to fight in the First World War returned safely - and so has no war memorial.
Happily on this occasion, (unlike Mr Weatherley's last visit) there was no power-cut and so we were able to enjoy his excellent accompanying pictures too
