NEW – Tea & Chat Afternoon

Sadly, support for the monthly coffee morning has dwindled since the recent move to The Barley Mow, Milford, and these are now discontinued. A monthly Tea & Chat at The Wildwood will now replace the coffee mornings. These afternoon sessions will take place on the 1st Tuesday each month from 2pm. Please join us if you can and feel free to bring a friend who may be interested in joining the Phoenix Club – meeting dates are Feb 6th, Mar 5th & Apr 2nd. Meg & Robin

 I should like to pay credit to the enormous effort put into this event by David and Robin, who was Quizmaster.  Patti and Keith gave essential support with refreshments.  Although I didn’t participate, I was around during the event and can report that there was a great atmosphere of friendship and pleasure generated by the occasion which was attended by 12 teams of 4 from four Phoenix Clubs in the Stafford area.  Jeremy
