From time to time, members organise events which they fancy and think others would too, for which they earn castles. These are some from the last year.

We had a lovely walk through the bluebell
woods at Nuffield in May. Chris Gibbs
organised this for us as she lives in the
village there and knows the area well.

The walk was initially through the woods
which were carpeted with bluebells.

We left the woods and walked through
pretty open country with lovely views
over the Oxford Plain.

After walking about 5 miles we were glad
to sit down for lunch at the Old Crown
café on Gangsdown Hill (the main road to
Nettlebed/Henley). The café has been
converted from the pub that was there for
many years. The change from pub to cafe
has been very thoughtfully done and
includes converting the adjoining barn
into a craft area, called The Maker Space.
Thanks Chris, and here’s to the next LETS

Games afternoon

Jane Williams and Chris Gibbs organised
an afternoon at Warborough village hall to
play board games, with a bring-and-share
supper. The afternoon was well attended,
and as you can see from the photos,
brows were furrowed and a lot of thought
went into the next move!

A new member commented  “It was my first experience of a LETS event. Everyone was very friendly, we played Scrabble , dominoes
and other games whose name I can’t remember, and shared some delicious food, and I found it all very enjoyable.”It was a fun afternoon and the attendees have asked that we repeat it at a later
date. So do think about coming along next time.

Christmas gathering

Members were invited to a get-together around Christmas time at the lovely house of member Mary Roadnight. Everyone contributed to a bring-and-share supper and we also shared some wine and soft
drinks. Members came from as far afield as Wycombe and Henley and it was a very enjoyable evening.
We took the opportunity to say a big Thank You to Jane Williams, who has steered LETS so well over the past many years. Jane loves her garden so we bought her a lovely David Austin rose,
appropriately called The Lady Gardener.
Mary lives in Britwell Salome and has a magnificent garden (above)  which she opens to the public through the Yellow Book scheme, and which she is offering to share with us on a summer evening in May
