Cardmaking group fundraising


The cardmaking group have been working hard not only having fun making cards but also selling them.  We decided that Riding for the Disabled was a worthwhile local charity who would welcome our small donations and, having seen the joy on the faces of the children when riding, it was a good decision.  We were able to hand over our first cheque for £100 recently and have already made a start on the next £100.  A big 'thank you' to all the ladies for their enthusiastic contributions.

Annual General Meeting 2014

Thanks to all who attended the AGM at The Hideaway on 18  November. Thanks also to our special Guest Councilor Mrs Pat Morrow, Verwood Town Mayor who commented on how good the turn-out was. Cllr Mrs Morrow opened and closed the meeting and joined us in the excellent social gathering afterwards. The meeting completed the essential business of reviewing the past year and accounts and electing the committee and officers. We also had useful discussions of starting Film and Travel Groups.

Meteorology is the science of weather and climate. The word “meteor” used to mean any atmospheric phenomenon, not just a streak of light in the sky – hence the name. The reason that we have weather and different seasons and varying climates is because the Earth is a very special place.   Why is it so special?
