Our monthly update in Spotlight - Uffculme's village magazine

February 2019








February brings the snow, so the old rhyme tells us,and it did!  Well just a bit anyway, and at Knightshayes families were out making snowmen and having fun which was good to see.

 

The secretary wisely cancelled the History meeting, in case of more snow,which didn't arrive, but also in case of members slipping on icy paths. So we're sorry about that, but we now look forward to meeting our February speaker, Colin Spackman, in March instead.
His enthusiasm for local history is infectious,and we eagerly await his talk, which is about the Fox family business and the benefit schemes they inaugurated, at a time when this was rare. Hooray for Quakers!

 

Colin will also talk about the Easton family,a closed book to me,so another treat in store.

 

We meet at 2pm on Saturday March 2nd, in the Garden Room. 
After this meeting we will revert to Uffculme Summer Time (yes a bit early) and will meet on a Wednesday evening at 7.30,as we used to, because evenings will be lightening and hopefully weather brightening, enabling us to go back to our old time of meeting.
So all you ex members who preferred to watch sport or see your families, or maybe prepare exotic dinners for evening guests......please come back to us!

 

We have several new ideas in the pipeline,which will be mentioned at the meeting. 
Saturday March 2nd at 2pm
