Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GETTING TOGETHER -

Kate wel­come every­one and said we were small in num­ber this month as sev­eral mem­bers are ei­ther un­well or had another com­mit­ment this evening.

How­ever as we wel­comed back our ‘old' friend Paul Ross we knew we are in for an en­ter­tain­ing evening as Paul talked about dr­waing.

Paul greeted every­one say­ing his com­ing to the club seems to be an an­nual event now as it co­in­cides the same week as his birth­day. He said every­one can draw some­thing and he hoped we would all join in try­ing with some pen­cil draw­ing. He ex­plained the dif­fer­ent types of pen­cils that you can buy some that pro­duce a softer line and can be ‘smudged' for more ef­fect. All the pen­cils we used were HB.

He started us off by just draw­ing a cir­cle - this even­tu­ally be­came a ball and with the ap­pro­pri­ate shad­ing it was a ball on the move…… then another cir­cle be­came a flower and again with shad­ing some could see how their draw­ing re­ally be­gan to take shape.

Re­fresh­ment break and a very spe­cial birth­day cake for Ian who is cel­e­brat­ing his cen­te­nary in a few days time. So af­ter a re­sound­ing sing­ing of Happy Birth­day we all en­joyed cake and tea. The raf­fle was drawn and then Kate gave out some an­nounce­ments. She had writ­ten to Re­store Hope, La­timer, thank­ing Gary Grant and fam­ily for a won­der­ful af­ter­noon with a visit to their lake and tea, which they so gen­er­ously pro­vide for us and other lo­cal char­i­ties. Kate had also writ­ten to thank the boys from Stony Dean School who had done a won­der­ful job of look­ing af­ter us through­out the af­ter­noon.

We have re­ceived a won­der­ful £470 from Waitrose Che­sham from their com­mu­nity do­na­tion scheme.

Jenny an­nounced that un­for­tu­nately we hadn't had a suf­fi­cient num­ber of peo­ple for the coach trip in Septem­ber so although we were can­celling this we will be go­ing out some­where more lo­cally so please keep the date in your diaries and the lo­ca­tion will be given out at the begin­ning of Septem­ber.

Kate re­minded every­one that we do not have a meet­ing in Au­gust so please re­mem­ber to get enough bat­ter­ies for your hear­ing aids this evening or if you do run out do give Kate a ring and she will bring some round.

We fin­ished off the evening by draw­ing a birds feather, wing and head. What a fun evening which we all re­ally en­joyed, and proved that every­one can pro­duce a sim­ple draw­ing. Paul was thanked again by Kate

Next meet­ing is on Tues­day, Septem­ber 9 at 7.30 Hal­i­fax House Lit­tle Chal­font.
