April's meeting provided a varied programme for CAMEO members. The afternoon began with a talk about Lasting Power of Attorney (L.P.A.) from Gemma Tyrrell, an associate legal executive at Bookers & Bolton Solicitors. Gemma's clear and concise explanation succeeded in de-mystifying the often misunderstood subject. She explained the advantages of a L.P.A. and outlined some of the difficulties that can occur if one is not in place. She answered questions and left us with a very useful guide. Gemma was in no way promoting her own firm: personal circumstances have shown her the value of having a L.P.A. and she is keen to promote the benefits to everyone.
While CAMEO members were enjoying their first cup of tea they were entertained by the choir of Holybourne Young Voices which, on this occasion, included our own Rosie and Eliza Meers. The children sang some traditional melodies, a Cole Porter number and a couple of Beatles' songs, including "When I'm 64" — a long time ahead for all of them and quite a long way in the past for us in CAMEO!
After the short concert, more tea was poured and the choir joined us for refreshments, with some of the youngsters handing round the cakes. All in all it was a most informative and enjoyable afternoon. There is no meeting in May but we next meet at church on 10th June at 2.30p.m. when our guest speaker will be Nigel Hughes.
