The next meeting in the Village Hall will take place on Monday 18th September at 7.30 pmand is a talk from one of our members, Lynda Kettle, on her life in the theatre and television as a Production Designer. You may know some of Linda's work as an Artist as her cards are for sale in the shop.
A big thank you to those who donated plants, pots and produce for our stall at the Playing Field event last Saturday and to those who came along to help sell this cornucopia of goodies. A special thank you to Janet Croud who gathered together so many plants, supervised the setting up of the stall and provided welcome knowledge on the plants. We made the grand total of £241 which was an excellent effort.
It is hard to believe that those of us who were at the farm for the BBQ last week were basking in glorious sunshine and enjoying Janet East's good food and unlimited hospitality. Let's hope that there are more sunny days to come before summer is gone. Do enjoy whatever you have planned in the weeks ahead and I will see you in September.

Tipton Ladies Group is a friendly ladies group that meets once a month in the small room at the Village Hall. We have an interesting programme of speakers with something of interest for everyone. Our Summer Party is always great fun, and this year we had a 'Red and White Night'. When Christmas time comes around, we spoil ourselves and arrive en mass at a local restaurant for a Christmas Meal.

New members of all ages are always welcome; you don't even have to be a wife! Meetings are normally on the third Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm. Annual subscription is only £12.
