Our eagerly anticipated visit to "Fairbank", Jane and Robin Lees' beautiful garden, could have turned out to be a disaster as, after weeks of glorious sunshine, the weather on 22nd July was wet and windy! However, Jane's warm welcome — and her delicious cakes — ensured that we all had an enjoyable afternoon, despite the weather. Jane had arranged the seating in her lounge so that everyone had a view of the garden. After tea, when we were waited on by her grandsons, most of us braved the (by then) light rain and enjoyed a stroll along the sweeping mixed borders to the orchard. It really is the most glorious garden and CAMEO members have expressed a wish to visit again — hopefully in more clement weather next time! Thank you to Rita and to John and Olive for helping with transport; and, of course, to Jane for her hospitality.
Our next meeting is at 2.30p.m. on Saturday 23rd September, when Bob Weighton will be returning for his third visit and talking to the title: "A Teacher in Taiwan." Due to popular demand this will be an open meeting, so all are invited to come along and hear the third instalment of Bob's adventures.

The CAMEO Christmas Tea Afternoon began with a quiz, requiring members to work together to answer a range of general knowledge questions. After all that brain activity they were able to relax and enjoy some musical entertainment. Terri White very kindly brought along three of her pupils who played for us — the first public performance for all three of them! We sang along to some familiar carols...
