We started off the month with a delicious lunch at the Garden Centre at Arrington. This was the first visit for many ladies and they found it most enjoyable.
We were delighted this year to support the Papworth Summer Fete held on Sunday 11th June with a Tombola Stall which proved to be very successful . The tombola prizes were in the form of plastic beakers filled with goodies and hand-made boxes filled with goodies, together with many bottles of all types– all kindly filled and donated by our members.
Our choir, Lyrical Voices, who are Friends of Papworth Hospital also ran a stall on behalf of Papworth Hospital. Again, the stall was most successful with the added attraction of ‘ Madam Clara’ who gave fortune forecasts to those who dared enter her tent!!
The Patientlink AGM was held at the Village Hall on 16th June when we were proud to present a cheque for £1400.00 to the Papworth Surgery following our very successful ‘Fashion Show’ held back in April 2017. We are certain the money will be put to excellent use for the benefit of the whole community. Thanks goes once again to all who made donations, as mentioned in our April Report, and for the many many people from Papworth and the surrounding areas for attending and making the event an amazing success.
Speaker: Our speaker, as advertised, was unfortunately unable to attend, however thankfully Angela from Boxworth Botanicals stepped in at the last minute to save the day. Angela spoke about how she had always been interested in herbs and had started out experimenting with different combinations to make essential oils. Following an illness she decided to go full time into making completely natural products for all uses from domestic cleaning, medicinal and health and beauty. We all got the opportunity to try various products from skin tonic to foot cream and the fragrance around the room at the end of the evening was wonderful, despite us all melting in the heat of the night!.
Next Meeting: Our next meeting will be held on 19th July when we will be entertained by Sue Smith ‘demonstrating ‘Line Dancing’. This is sure to be a fun evening – just hope it is a little cooler than now on the night!!.
