Bexhill Marina Townswomen’s Guild

Bexhill Marina’s women started July’s meeting at the Bexhill Sailing Club, what a relaxing view, but we quickly got moving and our Committee team gave us all the guff on how we are happily going from strength to strength.

After the tea/coffee break (don’t forget the biscuits!} and talking with out friends, we settled down to listening to Charles McIlwrick, retired, speak about his experiences during 36 years of uniformed policing. Life was certainly a lot quieter then, at least on the surface. From Chelsea to Battersea and a lot in between crime existed and people got into difficulties not of their own making and the police needed to be there. Of course there was some laughter. Picture it; Charles McIlwrick discovering his missing helmet was being worn throughout a formal dinner by one of the guests - Harry Secombe. At the end of his talk Charles McIlwrick’s book was on sale with proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Next we drew the raffle and sat talking to our friends, reminding each other of the next event - watch this space or another.

Our next meeting is our birthday party, we will be four years young; it is on 19th August at the Bexhill Sailing Club, starting at 7.30pm and members will supply a dish of food and Paula will make the punch. Happy summer everyone.
