Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GETTING TOGETHER -


Choles­bury-cum-St Leonards Women’s In­sti­tute Our June meet­ing at­tracted a num­ber of vis­i­tors and Dru El­lis en­ter­tained ev­ery­one with her un­con­ven­tional ap­proach to flower ar­rang­ing. In July, John Parry talked to us about the lives of the African/Amer­i­can slaves, us­ing in­ter­est­ing slides to il­lus­trate the story.

The sig­nif­i­cance and mean­ing of the words of their spir­i­tual singing was ex­plained and Keith and David sang a num­ber of the songs, ac­com­pa­nied by Eric on the key­board.

Business was kept to a min­i­mum to en­able ev­ery­one to en­joy the bar­beque cooked by hus­bands of com­mit­tee mem­bers and it was warm enough to sit out­side at St Leonards Parish Hall to en­joy the sur­round­ings and the meal, which ended with straw­ber­ries and cream.

Au­gust sent us on an out­ing to Ashridge House, where mem­bers, fam­ily and friends had a tour of the house with an ex­cel­lent guide, fol­lowed by re­fresh­ments and al­low­ing time to look at the ex­ten­sive gar­dens. The pho­to­graph shows us look­ing down the 224ft deep well which is be­low the Chapel.

On Mon­day, Septem­ber 15 we shall meet again in St Leonards Parish Hall. The out­break of the Great War 100 years ago will be brought to mind by Ed­ward Dixon, who will talk about “An­i­mal He­roes and Vil­lains of the First World War.”

On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 4, there will be a quiz with tick­ets avail­able cost­ing £10 in­clud­ing sup­per.

Please con­tact Carol Henry (01494 758435) to book.
