Many thanks to everyone that attended one of our get togethers in May.
We enjoyed a rather nice walk along the beach wall from The Oasis Cafe to Greenhill Gardens and back. I had every intention of taking a picture for this update but realised on the way home I'd forgotten to do it. Just imagine, hardly a cloud in the sky, very hot sun, blue sea and a gaggle of windswept ladies and you'll get the picture!!
Thanks to June for organising lunch at PIP Cafe in Poundbury. It was a new venue for some of us and it was really enjoyable.
Sunday Lunch at Pine Lodge was as always, very tasty and that will be repeated in June - see below for details.
Brunch at Shire Hall ended up being cancelled as only 1 person wanted to come. Have already got more interest for June so that will go ahead.
Lunch at Lee Garden was a great idea until I tried to book the table to find out that they didn't open until 5pm. A few of us did go in the evening but we all thought it quite expensive so we'll put that one on hold for now.
Now for June:
Monday Coffee - we have all been disappointed this month by the shockingly slow service in Hendover Cafe. We decided that for June we would go to Walnut Grove - first one will be Monday 13th at 1030
Friday 10 June - lunch at Potters Cafe, Durngate Street. at 1.30 - need an email or call to tell me you're coming by the morning of Wednesday 8th at the very latest please.
Thurs 16 June - our little trip to the seaside at West Bay - leaving Dorch at 11am, both Diane and I will drive. There are currently 3 spare car seats. We'll sort out who's in which car and your pick up point when we finalise numbers. Please email either me or Diane if you'd like to join us.
Wednesday 22 June - brunch at Shire Hall at 11am - email me or call me please if you'd like to come (Sandra/Ronnie already got you down)
Sunday 26 June - lunch at Pine Lodge 12.30 - e mail or call me please to book
Thursday 30 June - Skittles followed by lunch at The Colliton Club - meet at 1030 for coffee first. This was so much fun last month. Email Diane to book.
Other ideas -
Thurs June 9 10-1 Barnardo's are holding a coffee morning at Warmwell House
The Great Big Escape, Brewery Square.
Angela is interested in trying this. In a nutshell a group of up to 8 has to escape from a room using the clues provided.
There is a website thegreatbigescape.com - take a look and if you'd like to have a go at this then let me know and we'll see if we can put a group together.
Thanks to all of those who came to the planning meeting - our next meeting will be Wednesday 6 July at 2pm in the downstairs classroom at the Parish Centre
Look forward to seeing you all soon
