Mr Steve Patalong spoke about his position as Rural Enterprise Development Officer.  In his talk about local maps he used modern technology to show us a satellite photograph of Tysoe, and an OS map of the same area.  He then explained that maps could incorporate any aspect of the community that the maker thinks is important to the place, and use any medium.  We saw a wide range of maps: drawing, embroidery, painting, costumed figures or just lists of words.

At the beginning of the meeting a cheque for £250 was presented to Bev Knight to buy a second cooker for Tysoe schoolchildren’s cooking area.  She said that at the moment it is PHSE fortnight.  Each day children in one class are preparing themselves a complete meal.  Next year with our cooker installed the task will be so much easier.

Belinda Keep was the hostess.  Philippa Robinson and Jessie Sinclair served refreshments.  The flower of the month: 1st a passiflora (June Wreford), 2nd lily (Belinda Keep)

St Peter’s Community Centre in Whatcote was transformed into a waitress service tearoom one afternoon in June.  We had a lovely afternoon.
