Photography Group

You are invited to join us on our “Members’ Pics” Session at Etchinghill Village Hall, East Butts road on Monday 11th July, 1.30-3.30pm, where we shall be showing our members’ photos projected onto a big screen.  The main topic for July is Aircraft.  You will be offered tea/coffee and biscuits for the modest sum of £1.50 and there is ample car parking space.  If you have photos of your own (on any  topic), bring them along on a USB memory stick and we’ll try to find time to show yours too.  If you wish to attend, send an e-mail to

From the Chair – June 2022

On Tuesday we held our line dancing jubilee party. Thank you to everyone for making
sandwiches/cakes etc. To the ladies and Colin for making the tea/coffee and the washer
uppers! To Sue for decorating the table and to all of you for the enjoyable memories. The
sequence dancers had their jubilee party.
Monday and Frank’s fish n chip supper went down well with 39 walkers attending. Thank
you to everyone for putting the effort in.
On a personal level, I’ve had some blue tits nesting in a pot in the garden and now the babies are running around the garden. It was sweet until my dog clocked them now Instead of letting her out we are standing out with her lead on it was my turn at 5.15 this morning in my dressing gown. Hopefully, they will learn to fly soon and get off the ground.
Coffee morning is on Thursday the 16th with guest speaker Joanne Massey, a raffle, and a
free game of bingo.—

Stay safe Elaine

From the Chair May 2022

Although many of the activities numbers are on the increase within Phoenix, there are currently no members in the bowls group due to a shortage of members attending and group leaders.  The badminton has temporarily been suspended.  Badminton is generally a winter sport so we will review starting it again in September.

Pat and Di have booked a guest speaker,  Joanne Massey for June. There will be a raffle and a game of bingo on this coffee morning, together with tea, coffee, and biscuits in the new warm sunny room, downstairs at Lea Hall, what more could you ask for £1..

Steve Geale, is booked for the   September  Coffee  Morning.  Steve will be giving a talk about Ruth Ellis the last woman in the UK to be hanged for murder.

See you there

The April committee meeting welcomed a couple of new activity leaders. Keith will be taking over from Jo, as leader of the photography club and Brenda will be leading the keep, fit group. Knit and natter will be starting back on the 28th of April. Membership is still steadily on the increase and we have put up posters in the local community and in the local advertiser. Hopefully, this will bring in some new members.
Unfortunately, I could not be at the Coffee Morning this month but have had some good
feedback. The new room seemed to be a success, warmer and cosier and the guest speaker went down well.
See you at the next coffee morning in June
