OCTOBER 2006

Last Meeting
At our evening meeting last month, Graham Taylor a Bowen Technique practitioner, gave an informative talk about this form of light massage and demonstrated the rolling movements on our guinea pig, Graeme Tredant. It takes about three sessions to know if this therapy will help alleviate pain, and looks at the whole alignment of the body. If you require any further information or would like to make an appointment Graham Taylor can be contacted by phone on 07797 720828.
Refreshments followed as well as our usual raffle.
Our afternoon meeting was something totally different when we were entertained by the Caesarean Hand Bellringers. Tunes ranged from The Yellow Rose of Texas to The Bells of St. Mary's, some classical pieces and some popular toe tapping numbers as well. It was a very enjoyable couple of hours followed by tea and biscuits and our usual raffle.
