Talking to Ashdale Residential Home for the elderly

On Thursday we went along to give a talk to the residents of Ashdale and a film show. Was actually a bit of an ordeal as I am recuperating after an op and Stuart was struggling with one arm in plaster! But we didn't want to let them down and we got through it ok. I hope the residents had some enjoyment from it!

Another popular Quiz Night in Monkton Priory Church Hall

Our Quiz Nights have proved to be very popular community events and Friday was no exception. The Church Hall in Monkton was almost full to capacity which makes the winning all the more commendable. Congratulations to the winning team: Sylvia and Jim Lloyd, Bernard & Gillian Edwards, Monica Hannaway, Chris Lankshear - this month’s Monkton masterminds! Liz Jenkins coordinated the food and it is with the utmost admiration, I’ve said it before, that she and others on the committee can get together a buffet to such a high standard for large numbers . Pauline Waters was, as usual, our incomparable Quizmaster.

Our Next Events

St Davids Day Exhibition and Lunch - March 3rd

As our meeting this month fell on March 3rd,, we adopted a Welsh theme to celebrate our Patron Saint’s Day. Large numbers attended and they were not disappointed: they were able to enjoy an exhibition, a filmshow and a lunch (plus the usual coffee morning of course) Those attending were given a rare treat: the showing of one of William Haggar’s most famous silent movies The Maid of Cefn Ydfa which was based on an old Welsh folktale and popular Victorian melodrama. Vicki Haggar, great grand daughter of William Haggar, gave us an introduction.
