Glastonbury Tor Townswomen's Guild
Falling leaves and darker evenings meant it was time to celebrate the 33rd birthday of our guild.
More than 40 members gathered together at the October meeting to enjoy an evening of home-spun fun by the entertainment group.
This year it was a mixture of poems and jokes, followed by two sketches – firstly, the antics of patients in the doctor's waiting room, and secondly, a budding author reading a chapter from her latest "best-seller". This required a vast selection of sound effects, brilliantly executed, including running water, horses' hooves, bursts of music on the violin, song and much more.
As always, the sketches brought forth peals of laughter resulting in yet another success for the entertainment group.
Preceding all this jollity, the business of the evening included details of the menus for the Christmas dinner at the King William Inn, in Catcott, in December.
The ramblers have had a very enjoyable walk through the forestry woods at Stockhill and then across the road to Priddy Pools.
The evening meal at the Thai Elephant, in Street, was well supported and enjoyed by the lifestyle group. Julie Mills has agreed to take over the organisation of the cycling group group activities. Arts and craft group members have been busy making and decorating ornaments for their tree in St John's Church, Glastonbury, in December.
The evening ended with applause for the entertainment group, for all their hard work, and thanks were given to Glenys Phillips and Ann Merritt for their part in making the birthday celebrations another successful evening.
The next meeting will be on November 8, when the speaker will be David Andrews with a talk called 1950s, Pop Decade.
We meet in the small hall in Glastonbury Town Hall at 7.30pm. New members and visitors are always welcome to come and join us. Further information can be obtained by calling 01458 448747.
