What a full house we had for our first meeting of the year. Mrs Bates, our President, was able to welcome a new member before speaking of our regular monthly meetings. We have keep fit on Monday afternoons in the Village Hall, a monthly sewing 'B', and the darts season has started. Practice sessions will be held in The British Queen. Later this month we will be going to see Sawston Youth Theatre performing 'South Pacific'. They always put on such a good show


Our evening speaker was Mr Geoff Evans who spoke about 'The Life of a Racehorse'. Geoff is a stud manager in the Newmarket area and leads a very busy life. To use his own words, his job, his wife, twelve ferrets, his camera and a motor bike … not always in that order! He had some wonderful slides which explained the working on a stud farm from birth to training for racing if the horse is suitable. A good stallion can 'cover' up to 66 times a year and the mare will deliver exactly eleven months later. It is not very often that silence reigns at a meeting but it did at this one and everyone agreed what an enjoyable evening we had had


Next month our speaker will be Nicola Dunkin who will tell us about 'The Children of Chernobyl'.
