Tuesday

by Barbara Lancey

The Tuesday Group ladies meet again on Tuesday 19 June when our guest speaker, Michael Brown, will talk on "The Big Flood".

In his talk Michael will describe what is was like to live in a flooded house for nearly two months during the great flood of 2014; after the initial shock, he recounts the process of learning to adapt, the daily survival rituals with life on hold, the moments of hilarity and above all the support of the community and the kindness of strangers. An experience definitely not all bad.

All meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month in Drayton Village Hall starting at 7.30 pm. Guests very welcome for just £2.50 per meeting, or become a member for just £10 a year. We are a vibrant, fun loving ladies social group for all ages, and have a very varied programme to suit all tastes. Hope to see you there!
