The residents group met on the 14th March, we were treated to a talk by W. Bro. John Yates ” From Bricks to Boats and back again” about life on a narrow boat, which was very enlightening.

We were treated to WBro.Gordon Rosbotham’s “WORLD FAMOUS” Lemon Drizzle cake (he didn’t even get a piece).The usual tea & coffee was served, and the usual catch up chat ensued.

We welcomed back to the fold Geoff & Edith Bleakley after their enforced absence, and two new members to our little gathering, Mrs Elsie Makin, & John Yates (Jun). As usual Eileen Brown won the raffle!!!
