Growing Old Disgracefully is the ladies version of The Grumpy Old Men and the Not So Grumpies. Group members take it in turns to research an adventure – such as Chocolate Making, Ghost Walks, River Cruises etc. Everyone is expected to come up with an idea and then organise it. The group is fairly large so it is unlikely that you would have to do it more than once.
For August we had two outings, one of which was to Veolia, organised by Ann Davenport. It was a fascinating trip showing just what happens to our recyclable waste. We all came back with a goody bag which was lovely.
The next outing was a river cruise and cream tea on the Trent Crusader. We all did our best to do justice to the enormous cream cakes. The Captain was very knowledgeable – there was a sad story though. The picture does not do it justice, but there is a female black swan who has been on the river for years who has teamed up with a pair of swans and has been like a nice big sister by protecting the cygnets. Someone should let a male black swan loose so she could have a mate as well.
A meeting is being held at Chris Berrill’s house to work out the itinery for the next twelve months. Chris will let everyone know when she returns from holiday.
