July Round-Up

As well as the two bake sales this month (see last post), where we made over £500 towards our funds, we had our regular meetings.

Craft Club
At craft club in July members used old pieces of foam (such as pizza bases) to make unique personalised ink stamps!

Monthly Meeting
Our main meeting was a change from the usual talk or activity at St George's, as we headed out on a lovely sunny Wednesday evening for a guided walk of some of the City of London gardens. The evening was a definite success, and we agreed we really should get out more!

Cake Stalls!

Queen Square
A number of us attended Queen Square on 2nd July. Thank you so much to Laura, Alix, Ruth, Neelo, Clair, Helena and Claude for baking and for looking after the table at various points during the day. 
It was a great day - a brilliant atmosphere and music, and (miraculously!) no rain. And we made a whopping £345 to support our work and events throughout the year!

Denmark Street Festival
On July 23rd some of our members attended the Denmark Street festival, to sell more of our baked goodies. Thanks to Helena, Ruth, Claude, Clair, Pat and anyone I've missed for baking and helping to woman the stall. Final figure coming soon!


We still have two bake sales coming up, both in September. Do let us know if you can help in any way!

Phoenix Gardens 10 September 
Phoenix Garden Grand Agricultural show for this year, to be held on Saturday Sept 10th  in the heart of Soho. We usually do quite well at Phoenix. We have two tables and the same spot we occupied last year.

Open House 17 & 18 September
Open House this year is the weekend of 17th/18th of September. St Georges have once again asked us if we might provide refreshments. If a few people could help out on each day, and also bake for us, that would be great!

July Meeting, Wed 20th

It's almost time for our July meeting, on the evening of Wednesday 20th July, and this month we're getting out and about on a guided tour of the gardens of the City of London. 

For all the information you need, see our 'This Month' page.

Note that we are meeting near the Guildhall in the City of London, NOT at St George's Church.
