We chat about all sorts of things, mainly chocolate, sometimes knitting, and sometimes even discworld stuff.

We have a quiz, and a raffle and laugh a lot.

Hope you can make the next one.

An excellent meeting filled with the usual "riveting" conversation and yes both the favoutirte subjects, chocolate and knitting, were covered.

Mazzie prepared a brilliant quiz on Mythical creatures, won by Anne, (see above) and Kel won the country of the month draw and has been pronounced Empress of Japan.

Next month is the first of this years EEB LBE prize draws with another EEB LBE for the quiz winner. To enter this draw and ones to be held in June, September and December, you need to send me (or promise to send me) 4 GCTS stamps. pm me for address details.

Thanks to all who attended, see ya all next month.
