Shadwell Ladies Monday Club: the Monday Club are well into the new season, the October meeting on October 28 had Veronica Bird as the speaker and she gave a talk on her life as a prison governor. Veronica was awarded the OBE for her work in the prison service. During the summer recess the Monday club has been quite busy mainly due to the hard work of Elizabeth Holleran. They attended the mayfest summer tea afternoon and in August they were at the Horticultural Society Flower Show. The money raised by their Treasure map at these two events was shared between the groups and the Monday Club. Money raised at these events is much needed to help with the Monday Club finances. In order to raise a bit more money for the Monday Club it has been decided to have a Christmas Beetle Drive and afternoon tea party in the village hall on Monday, December 2 at 2-4pm. This is a joint effort with the Knit and Natter group, but anyone is welcome. Tickets are £3 and are now available from Elizabeth on 011322252826 or Gloria on 01132663883. It will be a jolly start to the Christmas season.

Village Hall Quiz: early notification of the next village hall quiz, this will be held on Friday, November 29 at 7.30pm in the village hall. Entrance is £4.50 and this includes a light supper. Teams of six are welcome but if you haven’t got a team come along anyway.
