Kate wel­comed ev­ery­one to the meet­ing and in par­tic­u­lar Ann Chap­man say­ing how lovely it was to see her again. Ann started straight away say­ing she was go­ing to lead us in mu­si­cal chairs. But not to panic she quickly added, there would be no can can – she doesn’t be­lieve in the old adage, no pain no gain. Just do what you can and don’t push your­selves too far was her ad­vice. With some gen­tle back­ground mu­sic our evening of fun seated ex­er­cise’s be­gan.

Firstly breath­ing and a steady warm up look­ing at pos­ture as well. Ev­ery­one joined in with the 30 minute ses­sion.

It was then time for re­fresh­ments and the raf­fle, 1st prize to Au­drey, 2nd Ruby and 3rd Dee.

After the raf­fle Kate told us news about mem­bers and fu­ture events. She has seen Joan and Joyce and both are do­ing well.

The last edi­tion of Ac­tion on Hear­ing Loss fea­tured some re­ally good po­ems that Mar­garet Long spot­ted, Kate had pho­to­copied some and they were on the ta­bles for peo­ple to take home. Ev­ery­one has an in­vite for the panto, Jack and the Beanstalk at El­giva Hall.

Next time Lit­tle Chal­font branch of Age UK will be at­tend­ing to tell us a lit­tle about their work as well as bring a sale ta­ble of Christ­mas good­ies.

Kate then handed back to Ann for another ses­sion this time singing with ac­tions, ex­er­cise for the lungs, some mem­bers stood for part of the ses­sion. We had some fun and worked hard with flow­ing scarves and singing. To end the evening Ann put on some calm­ing mu­sic and we had a five minute re­lax­ation time so we fin­ished the ses­sion re­laxed.

WHAT a busy af­ter­noon we had at our Oc­to­ber meet­ing.

First we en­joyed a fish and chip lunch which was ex­cel­lent.

Mr Bowler and a col­league then showed a film about the work of the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion. This was ex­tremely in­ter­est­ing about the var­i­ous ways help is given to exser­vice­men and their fam­i­lies who are in trou­ble.

We had our an­nual meet­ing with a county ad­vi­sor and a trainee look­ing on. All is well for the next year.

Mrs May was warmly wel­comed on to the com­mit­tee.

The usual business then went ahead. Names were taken for the trip to John Lewis store on Novem­ber 3.

County ad­vi­sor Lynn Foster judged the Flo­ral Art Cup which was won by Doreen Jol­ley, who put a frame around her vase of au­tumn leaves.

We are all asked to bring a pair of scis­sors and a saucer or bowl to the Novem­ber meet­ing on the 13th so that we can make flower ar­range­ments.

Come and join us at 2pm in the parish church hall where a warm wel­come is of­fered to all.
