Make a note of the date - CHRISTMAS SHOPPING TRIP TO BATH - Black Friday 24TH NOVEMBER

It's that time of year to start thinking about Christmas shopping, so I have once again arranged a trip to Bath to take in the Christmas Market and also Black Friday, where all the shops have 20% off their goods. The date for your diary is Friday November 24th. The coach will leave the Spa Hotel on Dorchester Road at 8.30 and leave Bath at 5pm. The cost will be £15. I have kept the price as the same as last year even though the coach company has put their price up, so please support the club. The trip is open to all members and their friends, so,please feel free to bring along who ever would like to come.
I will be taking payment at the next meeting and also the October meeting. You can also pay directly into the weybay account or put the money through Sheila's door.
We have always enjoyed a lovely day out in Bath as it is great for shopping and a nice lunch! 

Marisa.


WALKING GROUP

The walks takes place alternate Tuesday and Wednesday (this may change to fortnightly). The time and walk is determined by the person arranging the walk.  I do a rota every few months and everyone takes turns in organising a walk, once every few months.  If anyone is interested they can email me or speak to me at the meeting, and I will include them on the walkers' email list and they will get details of the walk each week, and be put on the rota. I will give details and will be opening it up to new members at the April meeting.

COFFEE MORNING

Thirteen WeyBay members including four new members met for the first monthly coffee morning outside the New Vic for the May coffee morning. They just walked over the road to enjoy coffee on the beach at the Boat Café.

This is a monthly event meeting outside the New Vic on the first Wednesday of the month at 10.30am. All members welcome. See you there.

WEYBAY LUNCH AND SUPPER CLUB

The WI lunch club meet every month. We are quite a large group, but not every member turns out each month. There is a rota, so each member takes a turn in choosing a venue.  We have had lunch or supper at some very nice pubs and restaurants. Anne O'Neill started the ball rolling with lunch at the Ship Inn on the harbour. Subsequent venues have been Cote in Dorchester, the Kings Arms in Portesham, the Balti House, the Nothe Tavern, The Springhead Sutton Poyntz and the Cove Inn Portland.

So far we have all enjoyed meeting up and having a good chat with members who we wouldn't usually talk to. It's been a good way of making new friends.

There are about 30 ladies on the current list, which is now closed. In June, by which time we will have  been meeting for a year, ladies can decide if they want to stay in the group. If some pull out, we will have room for some new members to join.

It has been a successful group and we hope it will continue.


BOOKS

WeyBay members are invited to bring a book that they have read and swap it for another.  Many members add a short review.  Many thanks to Sarah Holmes for organising the book swaps each meeting.
