OCTOBER MEETING OF STRADBROKEW.I.
There was a definite buzz in the air as members and many visitors gathered to join our open meeting with our speaker Paul Yaxley owner of the Fox and Goose restaurant in Fressingfield who was to give a cooking demonstration for our edification. The evening started in good time as we sped through the routine business and presented birthday posies to seven of our members all of whom were able to join us in their birthday month.
