Today I held up my metaphorical closed umbrella and led a TCF walk around Painshill Park . I use the word ‘led’ ,loosely . It’s a circular walk , but we still managed to get lost and ended up at the waterwheel three times. This is my contribution to the cause .I can’t go the Tuesday Evening meetings anymore as I go to my pottery evening class and Jayne and Hazel do so much . We coffeed, walked ,talked , laughed ,cried, retraced our steps , picnicked in a beautiful Turkish Tent overlooking The Lake, The Temple, The Grotto and The Five Arch Bridge. There were four new members .One man’s daughter died on 22nd December ,another lady’s son on the 27th – so we have brother and sisterdom in difficult ( an understatement of a word ) Christmases. We like having new members , just wish they didn’t have to join .
