Marlene’s Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning

Marlene’s 2nd Cancer Support coffee morning here at BV was as successful as the first. A steady flow of visitors (many from BV – thank you) munched their way through the mountain of scones she’d baked & enjoyed chat. Initial takings after expenses - £190, but she’s been promised matched funding, so total could be £380. Congratulations Marlene; it takes a lot of work & planning.

Greece – landscape of legends

There’ll be more images, including covers in Greek lettering, but here are a few early examples.

Our AGM (annual general meeting) is on Monday 14th, 7.30pm at BV. This public meeting is a chance find out what the charity has been doing & ask questions. Do come along.

For a 2nd year, Marlene organised a Macmillan Cancer Support coffee morning at BV. She baked all the scones & also made lots of cushions & aprons.

People enjoyed capturing the beauty & magic of Greece & its landscapes. Inside are a few images; Richard will photograph more when he returns from holiday & Sheena (in her own time) will assemble them into little books.

Repair work on the (leaking) flat roof over Andy’s office had to be postponed to October. Be prepared for noise & possibly disruption but Andy & Support Staffordshire hope to minimise it.

Our thanks to Andy’s husband John for rehanging a door to make more space in the activity room.
