The Strand Club Meeting Reports
On the afternoon of 11th May we were enjoying a delicious ploughman’s lunch provided by the White Horse. There was plenty of time to chatter with 24 members and one lovely guest. We had cake and a cuppa at the end of the afternoon and our much-awaited AGM, (with three newly appointed committee members) slotted in between courses.
Our planned outing on 8th June has had to be cancelled, so we will be at home in the Barn at the White Horse celebrating her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, showing memorabilia from the coronation and swapping personal stories of the day and of the past 70 years.
On 13th July we will be having Tim Bennett telling us about his years spent teaching.
There’s a warm welcome for everyone at our meetings, whether visitors or new members, with a small charge on the door of £2 members and £3 visitors.
We had a very interesting talk by Alex Wiseman from MIND, a countrywide organisation offering help, advice and information to people with mental health problems and lobbying government and local authorities on their behalf. He spoke about the stigma that still exists towards mental health and how we can help to overcome this. Norfolk and Waveney Mind can be contacted on 0300 330 5488 option 2 or email firstname.lastname@example.org They have offices in Norwich, Kings Lynn and Great Yarmouth.
Our next meeting will be our Spring Lunch on 11th May. As the AGM could not be held in March it is going to follow on from the lunch. Then on June 8 th we will be going on a mystery tour. There are places available on the coach at the moment. The cost is £32 which includes lunch and afternoon tea on the way home. Pick-up 10.30 and drop off 5.30.
There is always a warm welcome for visitors and new members. We charge £2 on the door for members and £3 for visitors. Further information from:
