Members and visitors to our July meeting were welcomed with a summery glass of Pimms or Prosecco which set the mood for a light-hearted and lively evening.
We were very grateful to Natalie Hubbard, one of our members, who stepped in when the planned speaker was unable to come to give her talk. Natalie has worked at Boots in Nottingham for the last 20 years focusing on New Product Development of skincare. We were surprised to learn that Boots No.7 ranges have been in production for the last 80 years. No.7 products were initially marketed under the slogan “The Modern Way to Loveliness”. Then , after a break in production during the war years, the new strapline became “Better and Lovelier Than Before”.
More recently Boots launched their hugely successful Protect and Perfect Serum which was given a global boost by the Horizon TV programme endorsing its’ anti- aging properties. This positive publicity resulted in an estimated 1 years worth of stock being sold within 2 weeks!
Natalie also brought to the meeting a clever gadget which measures skin tone and indicates the most suitable shade of foundation and lipstick for the individual wearer. Lots of ladies queued up to be tested. The lucky winner of the Protect and Perfect Serum in the raffle will, no doubt, be closely observed in the coming weeks and months- “Better and Lovelier than Before”!
Sandra Hall thanked Natalie for her very enjoyable talk and demonstration.
Our annual Skittles/ Fish and Chip Supper Evening, which is open to family and friends, was held in August in the Village Hall. The new format of a knock-out skittles competition worked well and resulted in Patrick Helps re-gaining his former title as champion, and Karen Jeffrey was runner-up. Patrick was presented with the winner’s cup and all competitors were rewarded with chocolate mini-prizes!
Fraser Venables ran 2 quick fundraisers- “Sticky Thirteens” and “Heads and Tails” with cash prizes for the winners and some welcome funds for our WI.
Our next meeting is on Tuesday 12 September at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. The speaker, Chris Biddolph, will present “Flower Arranging with a Difference”.
Visitors are very welcome.                                    M.G.
