  Coffee Morning at Roger and Beulah's  17th July 2010

It was a blustery day, even the rain clouds threatened but Roger and Beulah coffee morning went ahead with fingers crossed that we would be spared the soaking Worthing had received just a few miles away, and as luck would have it, we did.

During the week Beulah along with Roger and Karen had prepared the stalls, the layouts, the raffles, brick-a-brack etc in addition they had put adverts in the local shop, put a placard in front of their house, and had poked leaflets in all the houses in the area.

The day before I collected 80 home made cakes that Clare Colfer had donated, hmm yum yum and on the day Barbara had her craft and card stall, I ran the tombola, my sister in law Clare was in charge of the brick-a-brack, Elaine and Betty on teas and biscuits, Carol Sarah and Joyce on the raffle and Ann and Jean on the cake stall. So 10am came and although they weren't queuing down the street, a steady flow of people joined us to make this a very pleasant coffee morning indeed. Many new faces this year, and a number of polio members came along as well, so that was good.

At the end of a very successful morning we had raised just under £350 for the branch, and itís a big thank you for all that came along to the event, and many thanks to Roger and Beulah for hosting the coffee morning.
