*We will also be selling our Cale Green WI mugs for £2.50 for those who don't have one but want one to keep!

*£46.00 for calendar girl tickets (£44 concessions) last chance to buy a ticket

*£10.00 to pay for Bongo Bingos if you are coming with us on 20th November - this needs booking on Saturday night as the tickets sell fast so if you don't bring your money Saturday unfortunately you won't be able to come!

*Margaret is selling lavender for 50p per bag - all proceeds going to our charity for the year The Weekend Day Centre

*Helen is bringing some wares from the stall including alternatives to using plastic for soap etc

*The usual money for raffle tickets and tea/cake

We also have some exciting news about a meal out at The March Hare on 19th October - for £22 you can get a 2 course meal and 2 drinks (bottled lager, bottle of wine between 2, 2 bottles of cider) OR for £27 you can have a 2 course meal plus a bottomless glass of prosecco (this is over a 2 hour period) I have included a link to the menu in the comments. Margaret is checking out if we need to pay a deposit but she will be taking names on Saturday night so check your diaries! I am pretty sure we can drink quite a lot of prosecco over a 2 hour period! I have created an event on the social events group

LOADS Of exciting news and events to fill you in on on Saturday and just a heads up the November meeting (not this month but NEXT months meeting) will start at 4:30pm so doors open at 4:15pm to be finished in plenty of time for bonfire celebrations!

Finally please remember we are taking names of people who are interested in being on the committee for 2019 so please contact us if you would like more information before Saturday or let us know on Saturday night so we can create a ballot paper for our Annual Meeting in November. We have 9 committee places and currently all 9 slots are filled so if you wanted to be on the committee the vote would go to the members at the November Annual Meeting.

Sorry for the long post!

See you Saturday x
