Our June meeting, very conveniently fell on Wednedsay 1st June and so kicked off the Jubilee Weekend.  Many of our members were able to make it to our own "Street Party".  The evening was accompanied by a variety of music through the last 70 years including a rendition of "Sweet Caroline" which went down a treat, with all enthusatically joining in.  A magician entertained us and was enjoyed by all.  A quiz based on the Queen's reign bought the evening to a close.

Our first outing since March '20 saw 45 members visit Highclere Castle on Thursday 12th August.  An enjoyable visit, although the weather wasn't exactly as favourable as it appears to have been in Ashtead.
