The speaker booked for February (Gemma from Bookers and Bolton) was not able to make the postponed meeting date, so she will be coming to us in April to talk about Power of Attorney and other related matters.

At very short notice, we were fortunate enough to book Holybourne Young Voices to come and entertain us. They are a group of 6 to 11 year olds who come from the local area and are linked to Holybourne Singers. They gave us a varied programme, with some modern songs and some old favourites, then joined us for tea. It's good to have made this link across the generations and the choir is already booked for a carol concert at our Christmas meeting.

At the time of writing, we are looking forward to our March visit to Country Market for tea and a little retail therapy. Thank you to our friends Karen, Norma and Sarah who are providing the necessary extra transport.

The CAMEO ladies wanted to do something to help raise funds for the acoustic tiles in the church hall, particularly as many of them will benefit from improved acoustics at Lunch Club and Sunday coffee. After a chat, we came up with the not very original (but always popular!) coffee morning and cake sale. Karen Booker and Judy Janes will also be providing an accessories stall, selling jewellery, scarves, handbags, etc. Please come along and support CAMEO's efforts on Saturday 22nd April from 10a.m. to midday.

It was a glorious day for the Year 8 Young Venturers' expedition — clear skies and the temperature climbing to 26 degrees!The three girls and four boys set off from Holybourne, and almost immediately discovered how easy it is to get mislaid even when close to home! However, they soon passed Wyck and continued, although not without further excitements, to Binsted, where they enjoyed an early...
