IOur Christmas Bazaar will be held on Sunday 2nd December, of course at Highview, 6 North Road, Maidenhead SL6 1PL, from 2-4pm.
We had intended to have a Summer Garden Party, but somehow with members holidays and other events, it did not happen. We, therefore, hope that this will be an extra special event and that you will all come. This will give members and friends the opportunity to see the new Garden Room and the refurbished back garden.

It will as usual be a 'Bring and Buy' event, with refreshments and stalls.
Eileen Rogers will bring her amazing collection of hand-made goods. She is such a multi-talented lady and produced hand-knitted creations, hand made greetings cards, calendars, fridge magnets and many other things.

There will be other things for sale. Monday club always has a good collection of donated books. John Foulger persuades his daughter to donate some of her collection of necklaces and bracelets. Surplus toys will be on sale too.

Hugh, our resident Wednesday Club disco-man will also be there with some music.

There will be loads of refreshments and Jeanette is going to make cakes.
We hope you will all join us.

The Combined Charities Fair is to be held at the Town Hall, St Ives Road, Maidenhead SL6 1RF, on Saturday 3rd November from 10am. We shall be having a stall and it will be no surprise to our members that Eileen Rogers will be organising the stall. We are so fortunate that she finds time to help us.

The Friendly Bombs, drama group will be performing at St Peter's Church in Burnham on Tuesday 6th November at 7.3ppm. Several members of Monday Club take part in these productions. All members have a disability. They work really hard and have great support from the organisers and the Vicar- Rev Bill Jackson, who clearly loves them all.

Their events are free of charge, but there is always an opportunity to make a contribution afterwards. Everybody is welcome. 

Monday Club
October 29th was celebrated for the Halloween Disco. Colin and his team had decorated Highview with ghouls and ghosts, witches, wizards and enormous spiders.
Jeanette produced a spooky cake that was enjoyed by all.
Club members dressed in spooky clothes and they all had a great time.

Club nights in November will include the making of Christmas cards and the much loved visit from 'Pop goes the Choir'.

Wednesday Club is a quieter evening, but equally enjoyed by the members. Colin has kindly left the spooky decorations for all to enjoy.

One of the carers makes beautiful cakes, so Halloween will be celebrated with a spooky feast.

It is quite amazing how the carers at the Care Homes, help to turn out the residents in suitable clothes for the occasions. Halloween is no exception. I am sure that Hugh will produce some eerie music.
