June 2015 Newsletter

The Society supported the ‘Walk for Health’ group on their ‘Festival walk’ during the month. In the order of 60 – 70 walkers visited Jacobs Hall Lane and Wharwell Lane, amongst other locations, and were told the history of the area with a display awaiting the walkers on their return to the Wesley Chapel. The July walk is broadly called the ‘Edalji trail’ and should provide further points of historical interest.

The A.G.M. was held during the coffee morning. It was well attended and all Society Officers and Committee members were re-elected. The topics, and speakers, at future coffee mornings are July – History of Townswomen’s Guild with Pam Ball and Pauline Kelsey and August – John Palmer is speaking of ‘puppets’.

Gary gave a talk on Landywood Farm at the St. Andrews 2 to 3 club which provided an entertaining and enjoyable session.

Air-ambulance-chequeThe Society was pleased to issue a cheque for £100 to the Air Ambulance arising from the Ukulele / George Formby evening held recently at the Sports and Social Club.


The Carnival was blessed with good weather and was attended by in the order of 6,000 people. This was reflected in our stall where new and old members were welcomed throughout the day. All attendees thoroughly enjoyed the day’s activities.

It was a generally quiet, typical summer, month in terms of future engagements plus planned activities and it is expected that further points of interest will be confirmed in the coming months.
