On Saturday, June 30, it was another beautiful sunny day with blue skies here in SaddleBrooke when a ladies coffee morning and book exchange was held at the home of Sheelagh Simpson. Ten members and a guest of the British Club, as usual, enjoyed the camaraderie of friends, exchanging tales of current events in their lives.

As well as coffee and tea, of course, Sheelagh served a delicious selection of goodies which included coconut macaroons, oatmeal cookies, mini muffins, shortbread and a refreshing fresh fruit salad with fresh cream.

Everyone thanked Sheelagh for inviting them into her home for this very enjoyable coffee morning.
