Walk for Cancer Research –

Sue Blundell  reports:

So we did it!  There was laughter, singing, enthusiasm, grim determination and red faces but we did it!  The walk was a local route approved by the Shine Walk organisers.  We finished our 13.1 miles together and we’ve raised our target of £2,000 with more still to come.

Thank you to friends, neighbours of old and to all of you who have supported us through donating, raising awareness and providing us with much needed practical support.

Still time to donate: set up by team manager, Eve Alexander.

On 10th August at the W.I. Meeting in the Village Hall, Badby, my distinctive brown mottled three-quarter length jacket with pleated collar went missing. It was hanging up on the coat rail in the village hall lobby area.  At the end of the W.I. meeting, it had disappeared.

Any information regarding this would be very much appreciated.

Please contact Maggie Marshman, 01327 312018.
