Joyeux Noel

On Wednesday  6th December five of us went to Basildon Park to see Joyeux Noel – the whole house was decorated.  A large tree in the hall and several other rooms. As the blinds were down it all felt very festive. We managed to get a quick cup of tea and cake before it all closed at 4 o’clock.

Mottisfont Visit

We had a lovely day out to National Trust house Mottisfont Priory last week, thanks to some lovely autumn sunshine. The Kaffe Fasset exhibition in the house was wonderfully colourful and the gardens still had a hint of autumn glory.

5k Fun Run

Some of our members took part in this year’s Fun Run organised by the Community Association. It was a glorious day – sunshine with a refreshing breeze. Sadly Helen had a fall “Pity about my little fall which rather spoilt it for me”. The rest of us walked the circuit in just under 50 minutes, and went home with a medal and a goody-bag.
