Presidents Post – August 19

Good Afternoon ladies – are you as hot as I’m feeling? It’s a scorcher isn’t it?

I am looking forward to our meeting on Wednesday when we will all can have a go at ‘making’ . There are three options and you could be making more than 1 item!

The first is our homemade bee hotel – similar to that in the photo. This is made from a plastic bottle filled with hollow bamboo, twigs and straws. All necessary bits and pieces will be provided.

The next ‘kit’ that will be provided for you is a homemade lavender bag. With dried lavender – just right to keep your clothes smelling nice! Again -everything you need will be provided.

We will also be making beeswax wraps for those of you (like me) who did not get the chance in June. The wraps are helping reduce our use of plastic – if you are like me and use quite a bit of clingfilm wrapping food to be kept – this is a way of helping the environment.

At our last meeting the committee brought our suggestions to you regarding our Christmas Charity idea for 2019.

Children who are admitted to the Children’s Ward at Frimley Park Hospital are quite often taken in as an emergency and Mum or Dad have to stay with them in the ward. This often leaves them without the obvious toiletry necessities. 

So this year we are planning to put together ‘Parents Packs’ to give out to parents who arrive on the ward without warning. (This has happened to my daughter several times now.)

We have put together a list of items that would be suitable to go into the pack. We will be supplying you with bags to put the items in. You may wish to fill a bag yourself with our suggested items – or donate single or multiple items to go into a bag.

Already we have had a very generous donation from Elmsleigh House Dental Clinic ( in Farnham of approx 100 travel size toothpaste and 100 toothbrushes. So our thanks go to them for supporting us.

Items on the list are:





Face / hand wipes



Razors (in packs then we can split them)

Shaving foam

Mints(eg Polos)

Hand cream

All of these items should be ‘travel size’ and can be bought in most supermarkets etc.

Potential Outings

Hope you enjoyed our last meeting – and had a opportunity to look at the trips that Martine has sourced? In case you didn’t get the chance to look at the details the choice listed below. If you are interested...
