Our October meeting took the form of a Beetle Drive, run by Alton's own "Beetle Drive Queen", Mon Spiers. The very enjoyable afternoon concluded with our usual tea and home-made cake. Mon enjoyed the afternoon so much that she has decided to join CAMEO!

This month, 24 of us made the annual trip to Avenue Nurseries for lunch and Christmas shopping. The shopping experience was greatly enhanced by the opening of a branch of the Edinburgh Woollen Mill at the Nursery, just two days earlier! Thanks are due to Christine, Rita and Sarah for help with transport — and to Brenda, Karen and Kitty for their offers of help.

Our Christmas Tea takes place on 16th December, when we shall be entertained to a Christmas Concert by Luminosa Young Voices.
