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.
Ley Hill Flower Club have a flower demonstration and members should let Kate know if they want to go on Wednesday, November 12, £10 a ticket – it is stunning.
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.
The next meeting is on November 11 at Halifax House, Little Chalfont at 7.30pm.

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.
