Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GETTING TOGETHER -

The May meet­ing of Che­sham Townswomen’s Guild was chaired by Greta Thorne who wel­come a very re­duced membership.

Af­ter the usual busi­ness which in­cluded a re­port of the re­cent Fed­er­a­tion lunch held in Burn­ham and no­tice of forth­com­ing events in­clud­ing a Pic­nic in the Park which was be­ing or­gan­ised by three fed­er­a­tions and to be held in Slough in Au­gust. Mem­bers were also asked if they would join a quiz team for the re­gional round of the an­nual gen­eral knowl­edge quiz.

Our speaker was Netty Abraminko who gave an inspiring talk with back­ground of her child­hood, res­i­dency in Ger­many, di­ag­no­sis of MS and how in­stead of just ac­cept­ing the di­ag­nos is she de­cided to live life to the full in­clud­ing rid­ing and sail­ing on the Lord Nel­son sail­ing ship.

She then moved to Che­sham and has been writ­ing po­etry which she played to the mem­bers ac­com­pa­nied with spe­cial mu­sic. A truly in­spi­ra­tional lady.

The raf­fle was won by Ce­cily White, Joan Ed­munds and Julie Wal­ters. Our next meet­ing is on June 3 when the speaker will be Colin Oakes talk­ing on the Work­house ri­ots in Che­sham.
