In June we were fortunate to have the Nat West Bank Scam Awareness Advisor, Trudi Henderson to talk to us.

Trudi was extremely informative about the numerous scams out there in the big wide world that affect us all at some time, because we all have computers, ipads, mobiles and landlines. All providing a good access to the unsuspecting victim! Thank you Trudi.
We had another prospective lady member who is joining the club at our next meeting and I know she will be a "breath of fresh air" bringing with her a very interesting background to further enhance our female membership. Angela is already proving a valuable asset to compliment the membership, so our female numbers are steadily increasing, making for a more interesting gathering each month.
Our July gathering was on Wednesday 11 July at the Drayton Crown and our speaker was one of our own members, Derek Yeomans who many people hereabouts know. August sees our annual summer lunch at Hornsbury Mill which should prove to be a pleasant day though on that occasion it is for members and their guests only.
September sees an ordinary meeting with the representative from the Air Ambulance coming to give us a talk on their work.
Be you female OR male, we would love to have more members join us at the Drayton Crown on the second Wednesday each month at 11.30 for 12 md start. This gives people time to choose their menu and buy a drink. We have a short meeting, a good natter over a reasonably priced lunch and a different speaker each time, so our talks are very eclectic and interesting. If you would like more information please ring Paul Crocker 01458 252545 or www.langportandcurryprobus .btck.co.uk
