Raynes Park Afternoon Townwomen's Guild - May 2015

At our March meeting, before handing the floor to his wife, Mr. Reynolds, who was due to give a talk entitled ‘Painting Canal Barges’ explained that although he had accompanied his wife to our meeting he was not fit enough to address us himself as he had only been discharged from hospital the day before.  Mrs. Reynolds stepped into the breach to entertain us with an amusing recollection of what happened when she took her elderly mother for a trip on Concorde.  In the circumstances, Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds decided to divide the fee between RNLI and Air Ambulance.  Mrs. Eileen Brewer gave a special vote of thanks to Mrs. Reynolds for the enjoyable anecdotes, and thanked them both for their generosity.

In early April the group lunching at The Lloyds Bar, Fulham enjoyed their visit to this venue once again.  The following week a small group travelled to the Imperial War Museum – an attraction which always seems to be busy with tourists and students.  In this interesting and thought provoking museum, we particularly enjoyed the special exhibition ‘Fashion on the Ration: 1940s street style’ before spending a little time in the John Singer Sargent gallery, in particular examining the large, poignant canvas of the aftermath of a mustard gas attack.  A beautiful April day so sandwiches were taken on the terrace before finishing our tour with a quick look at the gallery of ‘Extraordinary Heroes’ stories, of VCs and other medals.

In May lunch will be taken at The Haywain, Epsom and a guided tour is booked of the BBC’s Broadcasting House.

The May meeting will be on Thursday, 21st at St Saviour’s Church Hall at 1.30 pm when Mr. & Mrs. Legg will give a talk entitled ‘Hope for Children in Latvia’.
