Raynes Park Townswomen's Guild - June 2018

When Claire Nethersole from Age Concern, Merton, visited us last month, she reminded us that they are an independent charitable trust although working closely with Age UK.  With a base in Mitcham, they raise their own funds experiencing the same difficulties in the current economic climate as other small charities, and like Merton & Morden Guild of Social Service operating in Morden to provide many similar services.   Mrs Eileen Brewer gave the vote of thanks. 

The Pavilion Club reported that they always enjoy a visit to the Earth to Table eatery in Raynes Park.  TWG ladies agree, this month arranging a lunch together there. 

The following week on a beautiful day a group visited the Millennium Embroidery and Garden, Sunbury.  A bonus discovered on arrival – the local Bead Group was there.  Before looking at the main exhibit we were able to admire their completed items (key rings, bookmarks, necklaces, bracelets and brooches) as well as wandering round to watch them at work, asking questions as we went and examining the equipment and the tiny beads!   We admired their patience and dexterity! 

A credit to them and the local community spirit, the embroidery itself is a collaborative effort of all the ladies and supporters from local organisations in Sunbury showing the principal features of the area at 2000.  Also shown are the logos of these local organisations carefully embroidered.
