All being well, ‘We’ll Meet Again’ on Wednesday the 7th of October in the Village hall.  Hope to see our loyal group there.

We are still in existence but until the Village Hall becomes available for us we cannot meet in our usual manner.   We hope that by October things may improve

Usually every Thursday 10.0am from the Sports Field.
Ramblers and Walking for Health organised group walks are categorised as ‘outdoor physical activity events’.  These are exempt from the latest restrictions, as we have already met the protocols, and put extra measures in place to reduce the risks of COVID-19.  This means that walks can have up to 30 people provided social distancing is complied with.

Our next Club night is on Zoom on Wednesday 2nd September  at 7:30 pm when we will have a presentation by Astrid McGechan on Landscape Photography titled- ‘Feed the Land’. If you’d like to join in please contact the Society through our website.
Our monthly topic title for our own photographs for August is ‘Garden Wildlife’ when we get together on the third Wednesday of the month and share these images together, at the moment on Zoom, when we chat in a casual way about what we created, offering praise, advice and suggestions. Post meeting, the images are put on our website for all to share. Take a look.

Yes we did finally have our annual Garden Picnic but sadly, as it was such a very wet and windy day, it had to be held in Val’s splendid garage instead of her garden. Never to be deterred by the weather we had a splendid turn-out and thoroughly enjoyed the whole occasion. Of great importance though, we did present Barbara Watkins, who is leaving Aynho in September, with a garden voucher as our sincere thank-you for her very enthusiastic and successful Presidency over the last 20 plus years; also bunches of flowers were given, not only to Barbara but to Hazel Croft as well, as she is also leaving Aynho after many years with the WI and lately a Committee member. We all wish them well for their future moves and we are also happy to welcome Jill Wightman and Fiona Hodges as our new Joint Presidents.
Unfortunately this Covid 19 problem is still with us so there is nothing definite to report on future meetings though it is hoped that maybe some from the 2020 calendar will be able to make 2021 and there are still thoughts for the visits to Arlewas and Chatsworth, mentioned in last month’s article. At our meetings we like to have several ‘charity’ talks and there were two for this year : the Macula Society and Blood, Bikes & Babies. The former we had previously donated to and we are able to report that we have also made a donation to the latter. As said before there is no future meeting fixed at the moment but the Village Hall is due to open again shortly so maybe October might see a change as there are other ideas in the pipeline – coffee at “The Cartwright” for one. Till such time do continue to take care of yourselves, keep in contact with your friends and keep safe.

continue to send each other their contributions online, This month we had some wide ranging accounts of those teenage years including a fascinating story set in Belize by Barbara who has just produced a book of her childhood in Belize which we are all looking forward to. The other topic was anything involving masks and again some interesting stories. Having considered meeting again in the Village Hall we found it would not suit our activity so we will continue to email next month on “Heatwave” or “My very first job”. We are also hoping to produce our usual book of our work for the end of the year.
