During our AGM last week, we celebrated our fifth birthday, with a delicious cake. The AGM also included voting on the President for the year and Diane Walton was voted in again this year.

On Monday 20th November we gave a warm welcome to Myra Robinson, our speaker who entertained us with her talk entitled, “Utterly Italy”.
We also displayed the bags made with Kate in the October meeting. Some fantastic creations were made, or are being made!
Last summer’s shared supper on the lawn followed by a quiz was such a success that we did it again this month. Just like last year, we forgot to take photos of the evening.
Thanks again to Amanda and Liz for setting a challenging quiz….especially the photos!
Anyone who wasn’t at the meeting need not worry, the uncollected pots have been put to one side for next month.
Fiona Clarke told the story of Jesmond Pool (as detailed in her book, pictured below). The pool first opened in 1938, but was closed by the council in 1991. The community came to the rescue and the pool re-opened in 1992 and has flourished since. We thank Fiona for taking time to share with us the inspirational story of our cherished community leisure centre.
