December 2018

Our November meeting gave us an insight into the work of Malmesbury Foodbank. Richard Payler, one of the volunteers who run the Foodbank, gave an interesting talk about the organisation and how they operate at Malmesbury. The talk prompted lots of questions from the audience who were really interested in the work of the foodbank in the community. Individual members donated enough food, toiletries and Christmas treats to fill two large boxes.
As well as local supermarkets, donations for our local area can be left at Malmesbury Abbey if you would like to contribute to this worthy cause.
Thank you to Jo Golding and Alison Bailey for serving the delicious refreshments.
The competition – a winter photograph was won by Deanna West.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Suffragette coffee morning on 19th October and I am pleased to report that we raised £240.70 which will be divided between ACWW and a women’s refuge in Swindon.

We are hosting the Group Carol Service at Minety Church on Monday 3rd December starting at 2.30pm followed by coffee and mince pies.

Our December meeting will be a Christmas lunch at La Flambe arriving at 12.30pm please don’t forget your gift for the secret santa.

February 2019

We hosted the Group Carol Service at Minety Church in December which was enjoyed by everyone and the collection raised £105 which is being donated to Dressability, a small charity that creates and alters clothes for the disabled.

For our first meeting of 2019 Malcom Lewis took us back in time with “Signature Tunes”. It was a nostalgic afternoon listening to the theme tunes we heard on the radio when we were children and to learn about the composers and actors who took part in the programmes. Thank you to Marion and Chris for the delicious refreshments.

If you have pets our next meeting is one you won’t want to miss when Mike Hollywood from The George Vets talks about “What’s new in parasite control for our pets”.
I am sure Mike will make it an interesting and informative session, it will take place on Monday 11th February starting at 2.30pm in the committee room of Minety Village Hall.

On Monday 25th March we are arranging a visit to Bath Fashion Museum to see an exhibition dedicated to the fashions of Royal Women. We are going by car share or train, so if you are interested do get in touch. Entry to the exhibition is £9.50 or £8.50 over 65.

Visitors are always welcome, if you are interested and don’t want to come on your own, we can always arrange to meet you on arrival or pick you up and bring you to the meeting.
