Following the gradual ‘unlocking’ of the country following the Covid restrictions earlier in the year, SI Southport members have arranged some social activities.
Our local hospice, Queenscourt Hospice, is celebrating 30 years of their wonderful care and support. To mark the occasion, SI Southport acquired one of their pearl anniversary rose bushes, which we planted in the garden of Baverstock House, which houses our club room.
Jean Tweddell and her Social Committee arranged an afternoon tea in July in our club room at Baverstock House. In the following month, Maureen Ballard and her Welfare Committee organised a coffee morning in her home in August. Both events were well attended by members and guests and a total of almost £500 was raised for our charity fund. Huge thanks to Carol Hill for her wonderful baking for the coffee morning and to all who provided cakes for the cake stall. It was lovely to see some members who we had not seen for some time at these events.
