The Brampton Ladies Group enjoyed visits from a further two speakers at their regular Wednesday evening meetings.

The first week Michael Gildersleve kept the ladies entertained with his amusing recollections on aspects of life in France entitled ‘Vive la Difference!’ Lynn Clarke gave the vote of thanks.

Lucky draw winner was Sheila Parker.

Refreshments were served by Marion Maycock and Joan Green.

The following week Sally Berkley-Smith gave an insight into her teaching children with learning difficulties for 40 years ‘Can we have a real donkey?’. She explained how these special children responded to various stimuli especially music and being involved in productions of musical shows and pantomimes. Diana Drury gave the vote of thanks.

Edna Roberts was the lucky draw winner.

Refreshments were served by Nancy Hogan and Barbara O’Farrell.
