It was hard to believe that it was 10 years since Sheila, Lesley and I took over running the Coffee Morning. How time flies.We talked about the many various events we had had ways to tie your scarves, making smoothies, visits from the Cat and Dog Shelter,the many talks from Sheila Hull and myself plus the odd quiz or two. We also remembered the members who are sadly no longer with us but still thought of fondly.
