First shift at the stall
Late morning shift
Our crafts stall made a total of £311.40 for group funds. Well done the ladies who staffed the stall and the customers who bought items. And well done as well to the ladies who made the craft items for sale - a really marvellous selection. Also, St Andrews Methodist Church for hosting the stall in their Church Hall. (photos John Lacy)

July 2007 Luncheon Party
On a wet St. Swithin's Day, Sunday 15 July, Group members, together with families and friends, enjoyed a great lunch in the garden of our President in Droitwich.
Marquees had been provided and this year sheltered us from the rain instead of the wished for sun.
As ever though, everyone enjoyed themselves and the rain later gave up its attempt to dampen spirits.
The luncheon party raised £1133 for group funds. (photos John Lacy).

May 2007 Race Night
On Saturday 12 May Group members together with families and friends enjoyed a superb evening at the Bluebell Inn in Ryall. Nine races were hosted by Moore 4 Entertainment with the actual races being picked by audience members so that no-one could predict the winners.
The evening raised £765 for group funds. (photo John Lacy).
