10th Anniversary Meeting of Clayhidon Friends

n our first meeting of 2019 on Thursday 10th January we had decided to not have a speaker and spend the evening celebrating our achievement of ten years together.

Despite several of our Group being unable to come because of ill health or other priority engagements, we had a respectable number to partake in the mulled drinks supplied by Sara and beautiful celebratory cake made by Tina’s fair hand. We all loved to get to eat one of the ‘ladies’ depicted in icing on the top of the cake. Phenomenal! Many thanks to Sara and Tina.

We spent some of the time having a fun Quiz, fittingly on “Women in History”, which caused much hilarity and rebellion in the Ranks. Our Quiz Mistress was Maureen and she held it all together admirably. Such questions as ‘What was the name of Germaine Greer’s Book” was popular. (The Answer being ‘The Female Eunuch”). And ‘Who was the admirable Speaker of Parliament?’ activated a lively discussion of appreciation on the style and command of Betty Boothroyd, a lady who rose up the ranks from her original career of a Secretary. We were very surprised to know that Madonna beat Adele and Dolly Parton in having sold the most records as of 2016.

We always welcome new members. We have a lot of fun together whether it is an informal meeting like this month or a more structured Talk from Speakers on varying topics. We also have a trip out in the summer and meet informally during the better weather for cream teas in members’ gardens. If you are interested in coming along, we meet on the 2nd Thursday of the Month at Clayhidon Parish Hall. If you are interested, please contact Anne Langford for more information. Tel 01823 680086.
