A terrific afternoon was had by all at District Chairman Vicki’s Afternoon Tea. We
were entertained by ‘Marvellous Milliner’ Simon Meanwell-Ralph, who found hats to
suit every outfit in the room! Delicious sandwiches and home-made cakes were served
to District 9 members and guests. The proceeds from this very enjoyable event went
to the Chairman’s charity; Pancreatic Cancer Action.
