June 2009

Outing to Milestones Museum, Basingstoke

GOING back in time was both interesting and enjoyable as 47 of us descended on Basingstoke. We had quite a few laughs during the day, especially when going into the backyard of a Victorian house. There were shrieks, as someone (who shall remain nameless) opened one of the doors that were in the backyard to discover the figure of a man sitting on the toilet reading the paper. Thankfully, the figure was not real although he did, at first glance, look life-like.

Wednesday Social Club - Grand Fashion Show - May 2009

THE committee and members of the Milborne St. Andrew Wednesday Social Club would like to thank all those who supported the above event and made it such a fun evening.

The total raised was £505.90 and a donation to the charity, Mosaic will be made. None of this would have been possible if the community had not come together to support the event. A big ‘thank you’ is also extended to M&Co Blandford who enthusiastically provided their expertise and guidance from the start. Without their help the fashion show would not have been possible.

Grateful thanks go to Signpost Housing Association and Tenants’ Forum for kindly funding and printing the programmes at extremely short notice.

Thanks to the successful People’s Lottery Grant the professional effect of the catwalk was enhanced further by the newly installed control room. This contains technical sound equipment and lighting, it had its first airing that night.

Special thanks go to Sid and Melva Coe, Ian Karley, The Milborne Players, Sue Lucas, Jo of ‘Spoilt Rotten’, the stylists from ‘Beaux Cheveux’, Dorchester, and all other helpers too numerous to mention.
We at the Wednesday Social Club are overwhelmed by the village’s response to the event. Seeing all the happy smiling faces made the planning and preparation all worthwhile.

Wednesday Social Club - Cider with Josie - March Report

Josie and John Wright very kindly came to our Wednesday meeting at short notice. Peter Lindsley from age concern had car trouble and had to postpone his visit to later in the year.

Many thanks to Josie and John, for a very interesting talk on how cider is made besides giving us a taste of real Scrumpy Cider. They showed us slides of how the good old boys produced their brew.

A few of us went home with flushed faces and all of us enjoyed the afternoon.

Next Month, First of April, A.G.M. followed by a Presentation from Margaret Hanniball, representing the Charity Mosaic. All welcome and please bring a friend

Wednesday Social Club - February Report

The Milborne St Andrew Wednesday Social Club would like to thank Peter Robinson who kindly came along to our February meeting to talk about gemstones.  It was a very informative talk where Peter explained the origins of many types of precious and semi-precious stones.  I’m sure we all came away happy with the knowledge that whatever stones you have they are equally precious to you if you like them, regardless of their value.  Many thanks Peter.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday 4th March when Peter Lindsley from Age Concern will be our next speaker.  Please come along and join us in the village hall from 2.30pm.

Wednesday Social Club New Years Party - January 2009

We had a very enjoyable afternoon at the village hall. We thought the cakes were never-ending! One thing we were puzzled about – we could not find any plates! We eventually found a few and managed to feed everyone!

Deana gave us a few wonderful songs and some of us even joined in! We had a competition based on “Who’s Who” around the room, and a “brainteaser” questionnaire on the tables.

We had so much food that everybody went home with a “doggy bag” with many smiles on happy faces!

We hope everybody enjoyed themselves and hope to see a lot more people at our next meeting on the first Wednesday in February when Peter Robinson will give us a talk on precious gemstones. We hope this will interest you and encourage you to come along!
