Overstrand Parish Council

Strand Club Report for May 2017


10th MAY 2017

We welcomed 17 members to our special meeting. The food and tables had been prepared by the committee and the pavilion looked lovely. Jackie had made table decorations from flowers and greenery, each one topped with a butterfly. These were to be raffled at the end of the afternoon.
The salad was appetizing, varied and plentiful, and very much appreciated by the members. Glo had made some excellent trifles which were slightly boozy in nature and which delighted us all no end!

Once the food had been demolished we were invited to trawl through the bring and buy goodies. Many members went home delightedly clutching treasures, including those lucky enough to win Jackie’s flower arrangements in the raffle.

Our next meeting will be our outing to Horning for a trip on the Southern Comfort, a Mississippi river boat. As mentioned on the tickets, all those coming should be outside the shop in Overstrand by 11.30 when our coach will arrive. We expect to be back by around 5.30.

The next meeting open to all is on July 12th. A representative from Age UK will join us to talk about the organisation’s many ways of helping us. As usual this will begin at 2 pm in the Sports Pavilion. Everyone is welcome and visitors will be charged just £2 at the door to cover light refreshments. Raffle tickets will be available separately throughout the afternoon. Do come along and see what you think of us!
