The Vine Project

This is the project we have supported for the last couple of years to help vulnerable children in Africa. Pat Chase, who visits the Project at least once a year, is hoping to join us at the August meeting and the following is a list of items that would be most useful. As they have very few small children teenage sizes would be the best, ie 12/13 years as African teenagers are very slight.

Soap                                                                Vests/singlets

Toothpaste                                                      T-shirts

Toothbrushes                                                  Shorts

Knickers                                                           Dresses

Underpants                                                     Used spectacles

(Clothes/underwear can be good condition secondhand)

Please bring your donations to the August meeting or give to one of the members of the Committee.

Meeting on 13th April

We had a very enjoyable, interesting and amusing meeting on13th April. Our speaker was Lorraine Stanton and her talk was entitled “The sausage stuffed with TLC”. She told us about her life as a Rare Breeds Farmer and her passion for Gloucester Old Spot Pigs and their meat. She then demonstrated how to make sausages with a portable sausage-making machine, explaining as she went along about the ingredients that make a very good sausage. She finished by tying the sausages into a traditional string. Unfortunately she has had to sell the farm and her sausage making business but is still very passionate about good sausages!

A few photos from the meeting.

The Union Jack was to support her view that we should only eat British produce.
