AND SPEAKING OF BOOKS…

.

A Club service that many members may not know of is the lending library.  This is in the Anne Murray room and members can simply select a book or books to take home, read, enjoy and return when finished.  The lovely people who process the books donated for the Book Fair regularly refresh the lending library, taking away books that have been on the shelf for some time and replacing them with others.

SOUP THANKS

.

The first couple of weeks of Monday soup lunches have been very enjoyable according those who have participated, and are planned to continue during the cold months.

.

As well as being a nice way to spend some time with friends, the proceeds from soup sales are being used for some very useful items for the Club.  Last year we raised enough money to not only heavily subsidise the Christmas lunch but also to replace much of the old, heavy plates and bowls and very dilapidated cutlery with new and modern items.

.

See you there soon and we’d especially like to hear from anyone who would like to help out by making a soup or two.
