Annual Meetings have a reputation for “not very exciting” but not this one. After business and refreshments, it was time for the Annual Auction.

There were ornaments, pictures,  toiletries, books, items for the kitchen, the bedroom and so on.  The prices were wound up by Barbara our President/Auctioneer for the day.  Bargain Hunt had come to Stone!

Now for the rest of the year and we can promise it will be just as much fun.  Look out tor our posters around the town for what is on, on the first Wednesday of each month at 2p.m. (not June) and come and see for yourselves what a friendly bunch we are.
