Salisbury support group organiser Sheelagh Wurr reflects on the Salisbury Shakers non-meeting.

Being warned of storms and extreme winds, we decided to postpone the meeting due to take place today. Sheelagh agreed to meet any members local to Salisbury, for a cup of coffee and a chat.

It turned out to be a lovely day in Salisbury with hardly any rain and hardly any wind!  Altogether, there were seven of us, including Jillian’s husband, and we had coffee, cheese scones (thank you for saving me one, Julie!) and a good chat.  We were pleased to welcome new member, Ron.

We plan to hold our main meeting on 29th July; however, the room we usually use is unavailable so we decided we would meet for lunch instead.  We will go to the Fisherton Warehouse café in Fisherton Street (as you walk up Fisherton Street towards the station, it is on the left on the corner of the footpath along the river.)  Nearer the time, I will ask for numbers so I can book it.  It sells toasted sandwiches and food we can eat with our fingers and is not too expensive. So seems to work well.

Following something that came up in today’s discussion, I have managed to buy eight mini chip baskets! Inflation means that the price has risen from £1 each to £1.25 each.  First people to ask me can have them!

Next time we will ignore the weather forecast!
