On a wet and dreary Saturday afternoon in January we were transported to the sunshine and glorious scenery of Italy in the Maggie Smith film "My House in Umbria." Grateful thanks are due to Liz for giving up her Saturday to operate all the technical stuff — and to Jacob for spending the morning making sure everything would run smoothly in the afternoon.

At our February meeting Rachel Sturt joined us to talk about the training and career path that led up to her decision to apply for the role of Anna Chaplain. We learned of the very varied aspects of the role — many of them definitely requiring a sense of humour!

Our next meeting is on 17th March at church then, on 28th April, we hope to take everyone to Forest Lodge for the afternoon. Can you help us with transport? More and more of our members now need to take their walkers with them in order to feel secure when out and about and this has implications for the number of cars required. If you can offer a lift, please speak to Judy or Janet.
