The Thursday Club meets in the Village Hall on the second Thursday of most months throughout the year. 'Club' is a bit of a misnomer: you don't have to join anything or be any particular age to come along, just gather at the village hall at 2.30pm and be prepared for a very good tea (only have a light lunch), some entertainment and plenty of time for a natter.
Our April meeting was a huge success with the return of Richard Lumsden and more of his vinyl records and anecdotes. We were expecting ‘LPs from the 1960s’ but he had to change at the last minute and brought along a selection of 45s. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and – good news – we can invite him again as we know he still has a load of LPs to share with us!
On 10th May, we had a real treat as Owen Masters came to share his memories of South Milton in the 1940s and 1950s. This was a really interesting afternoon. Graham Collyer kindly offered to help with the presentation so thank you also to him.
On 14th June, we are going out for tea! Marion has kindly organised this for us and we will be having a wonderful cream tea. The cost is £5.50 per person and guests may be invited. There will be a list going around at the May meeting for people to sign up as we will need to know numbers in advance. As with our Christmas lunch outing, we will organise car sharing.
We don’t have meetings in July and August but will resume in September.
As always, visitors are as welcome as members at our meetings, the normal charge is £2.50 and this includes the tea but obviously the June meeting will be a bit different. Thank you to all of you who support the Club and thanks also to the merry band of helpers!
