June 2016


Our June meeting was small, perhaps because although it was June, the weather was more like April and people did not feel like turning out. Anyway we met to organise the Strawberry Tea event to be held in Val’s garden on June 18th with the hope that the weather would pick up again.

Walking Event: July was the preferred month with either the 9th or 16th (both Saturdays) as the date. It was felt that if we started at 11.00am we could finish with lunch together at 12.30ish. The Boathouse or Dragonfly at the Rowing Lake can cater for our large group and parking is free. Denise asked people to contact other members they knew to find out their preferred date. If people wanted to take on fundraising, sponsorship forms can be provided at our meeting on 7th July.

Reconstructive Surgery: Vanessa gave an update on the Breast Unit and the introduction of new reconstructive surgery which was saving some women from having a mastectomy depending on the position of the tumour.

AOB: The Head and Neck groups AGM will be held on 18th September at the Woodman to which we are invited time to be confirmed nearer the date.

Joy Keys who visited last year from Malaysia is planning another six weeks trip to Peterborough and hopes to catch up with us again then.

Val asked if anyone had seen Rita recently or knew how she was getting on.
