January 26th: Chantelle Williams of ‘Fresh From The Boast’ based in Emsworth, will give us a Talk, show a Video and do a Fish Preparation Demo. You might like to view her video on You Tube:
February 23rd: Tessa Smith will give a Talk about her Chutneys etc. and then, something of a diversion – interesting I hope – a Talk on modern cleaning methods. I’m assuming as someone who prepares food, even if it’s simply a sandwich, you will want to know about kitchen/food hygiene.

April 27th: A Group Outing to the Salon du Chocolat, Chichester (near St. Richard’s Hospital) Dawn will give us a Talk and Demonstration, there will be tea/coffee and chocs to take home. Approx £10 pp – fantastic value.
May 24th: A Group Outing to Tuppenny Barn. Maggie will give us a Talk, a Guided Walk and then large scone, tea/coffee. £7.50 pp.
June 22nd: Sylvia from 'Chichester Well-Being' will give us a 45minute Talk on Nutrition followed by 15mins explaining 'Well-Being'

Sept 28th: Details in progress
Oct 26th: A Group Outing to Slindon (pumpkin display), visit to nearby Pottery (short demo), ‘The Forge’ tea-room for light refreshment (pay as you order). If this is half-term and near Halloween, we will have to modify the date, as they get extremely busy at that time.

Annual Programme

Walking with Malcolm, June, Tony & Wendy
There is no limit to numbers. We meet at 9.30am for a 9.45am start at different venues as listed below. Average walks are 4 to 6 miles with a stop for refreshments. There is normally a longer all day walk in July—when if possible we arrange a stop at a local pub for lunch.
Sensible shoes are needed on all walks. There could be styles or farm gates on any walk. We do try to keep clear of any farm animals.
So come and join us. Weather permitting our walks are on the 1st Wednesday of the month
