The chairman welcomed everyone to the July meeting and apologies from those unable to attend were read out. The mystery coach/walk was enjoyed by members and friends with 48 going on the coach and another four meeting at the venue. Those wanting to walk were dropped off at a point and given details which took them along the Broad at Rockland St Mary and back to the New Inn where they were entertained by Morris dancers. The garden party on July 4 was a success. About 40 people attended and the weather was kind. Thanks were conveyed to Marcella Bird for the use of her garden. Details of a combined trip with the car club, boat club and wine club were given which is a trip on a boat up the Broads with a jazz band, on September 4.
