September Meeting

At September’s monthly meeting, we celebrated our 7th Birthday with the Poynton Jemmers Women’s Morris. They did several dances for us – accompanied by great musicians; and in between dances, Alice (the foreman) talked about the history of morris dancing and the history of the Poynton Jemmers  It was great fun to watch and even more fun to join in!

Just as the Jemmers had finished all the lights went out! (A power cut throughout the whole village) But we persevered and ate our birthday cake in the near dark!

Our first Summer Fair was a roaring success. We had an amazing turnout and everyone really enjoyed the diverse activities provided including tea duelling; blind date with a book; henna painting; dressing up and eating cake. A great evening was had by all. Many thanks to everyone whose hard work made it such a success. A special vote of thanks should go to Jenny H. who put in so much time and energy organising this event.

Bike Fest A few stalwart members successfully provided and served refreshments and cakes at the Disley Bike Fest on Sunday 16th September. £137 was raised and will go towards our community project, a baby changing table in the Community Centre.
