October Update

AK members have once again had an interesting and varied month of meetings and activities. Our, now annual, Silver Sunday was a great success with the Kelsick Hall full of happy solo retirees enjoying Afternoon Tea and musical entertainment from Paul Gregson. We are already being asked the date of the 2018 event!

Weekly meetings included a ‘Pass the Buck’ evening at Brathay Church Hall. Members were asked to bring along an unusual object. With many unusual items with varying ideas of what they might be or used for made for a fun and sociable evening.

Members were actively involved with front of house duties or audience support at Ambleside Players Production ‘Out of Focus’.  Willow Lantern making at the Rugby club was well supported with a number of lanterns made in preparation for the Ambleside Christmas Lights parade.

Kate Sykes from Link Community Development Scotland gave a most informative audio presentation of her work.  The charity promotes access to quality education in rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa, helping both girls and boys to have equal access to quality education and develop their potential for better life opportunities.  www.lcdinternational.org

Rotary shoe boxes are presently being filled by members for distribution to Eastern European countries and members are busy planting crocus bulbs around the village in aid of Purple for Polio campaign.
