Felicity Beynon re­ported on the very en­joy­able Beech­wood Group meet­ing in Wen­dover when the ma­jor­ity of mem­bers wore red, white and blue and en­joyed a glass of bub­bly with cel­e­bra­tory cakes to com­mem­o­rate the Queen’s birthday.

The speaker, Richard de Peyer, di­rec­tor of Bucks County Mu­seum in Ayles­bury, gave a very in­for­ma­tive talk about the mu­seum’s re­struc­tur­ing for 21st cen­tury.

Judith Butt re­ported on the Bucks Fed­er­a­tion an­nual meet­ing held in the Wa­ter­side Theatre in Ayles­bury on April 27, which was also at­tended by Elaine and Mary Collins.

The speak­ers were ex­cel­lent and a su­per video of last year’s cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions was shown.

Thanks were given to Ju­lia who held a very suc­cess­ful cof­fee morn­ing at her home, which raised £123.75 for the char­ity Bucks Mind.

Gary Beynon came to the meet­ing to tell mem­bers about the Christo­pher Project to raise funds for re­pair and con­ser­va­tion at St John the Bap­tist Church in Lit­tle Mis­senden, which has some rare wall paint­ings which need to be pre­served.

It is one of the cri­te­ria of the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund­ing to make lo­cal peo­ple aware of what is pro­posed.

Af­ter a de­li­cious tea, Barbara Aris pre­sented the two res­o­lu­tions on “avoid food waste and ad­dress food poverty” and “ap­pro­pri­ate care in hos­pi­tals for peo­ple with de­men­tia,” which were dis­cussed and voted upon.
