Another lovely summer evening as we met at Charlton Old Schoolroom for our birthday celebrations. The actual birthday is May but as that is now the Annual Meeting a summer tea has proved a good idea. This also gave members a chance to see some of the work already taken by COSRA. Suggestions for other improvements will be welcomed by the management committee.

Sue Miller welcomed us with news of a donation from Walkabout, thank you Cropthorne. Thinking caps on ladies for suggestions of an educational visit.

Diaries for 2019 can be ordered from Sue Beale.

The draw to go forward to Federation draw for a Denman bursary went to Kathy Rayers.

A donation will be made to COSRA from this evenings raffle and donation box.
