KESGRAVE CO-OP WOMEN’S GUILD:
On Tuesday, July 11, Phil Holmes gave an illustrated talk on his safaris in Africa. He showed some beautiful photographs of the many wild animals he had seen on his travels. We also saw the lodges he and his wife had stayed in and the interesting local people and guides they had met.
The committee provided a marvelous buffet for our birthday party on Tuesday, July 25. One of our long standing members, Ruby Lee (pictured), cut the beautiful cake and we had time to catch up with friends and enjoy a drink and food on the last evening before our break in August.
Tuesday, October 3: Peter Regelous will talk about his life in the entertainment industry. He will recall some of the people he came across during those years and with anecdotes galore, he will tell us some of the best and worst experiences that he has encountered along the way. Peter has been in many sit-coms, soaps and advertisements.
Saturday, October 17: The Guild Harvest Supper. A ploughman’s or jacket potatoes will be provided (the final menu has yet to be agreed,) and we are being entertained by the Co-op Choir.
Tuesday, October 31: Carol Pryke and her husband will be giving a talk about the pets as therapy (PAT) work they do. Summer, their golden retriever and a PAT dog, will be with them. Volunteers with their pets bring joy, comfort and companionship to many individuals in care homes and clubs who appreciate being able to touch and stroke a friendly animal.
The guild welcomes new members who can visit for two meetings before joining. The annual membership is £15 and we charge £2.50 a meeting to include raffle tickets and refreshments. Meetings start at 7.15pm in the community centre.
