As usual, last month started off with Janet’s Quiz, which more than tested our brains, followed by a fund-raising raffle. After having to close for a week, we then welcomed Judy Rogers, our Deputy Mayor. A natural speaker, Judy gave a fascinating and humorous talk about many of her official duties and experiences, interspersed with some of her hilarious and clever poetry. We very much enjoyed her visit and hope she will come again in 2016. We rounded off our November meetings with a TV Themes Quiz, covering the years from 1972-2006.

The VIP Club would welcome more members with sight problems and mini-bus transport may be available. We are also looking for another volunteer. We meet on Wednesday afternoons from 2.15-4.00 pm in Hastings. Further details from Marie Turner on 01424 428866 or Rosemary Bartholomew at
