Now we do owe a lot to Tony and Barbara who have kept
the club going. until this year the members thanked them
for their commitment so now we know our members will
miss them our meetings, the togertherness, the chats, the
friendships, in fact a big loss. There are members who
looked forward to the meetings, flowers, cards and if they
were ill and sometimes lonely . Perhaps who knows there
may be someone out there who can in the future kick-start.
For now our members a sad “Adieu” hopefully we will see

wherever you are don’t forget the “Welcome Club” and
“Keep smiling”

My appreciation must go to Robin who gave me names
