Our October meeting took us to Chester where we experienced first hand the Chester Ghost tour. Our professional guides, Jan Varley and Ann Coward, took us round the haunted sites of the city centre and told stories of tragic plights of love and loss. A most enjoyable evening was had by all 36 who attended but sadly not a ghost was seen! Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 4th November when we will be hearing tales from Jackie Bellfield.
If you would like to give us a try do come along on the first Wednesday of the month at 7.30 p.m. in the Parish Room next to St Andrew's Church. All are welcome to our meetings, and for £2.00 which includes Tea/Coffee and biscuits it makes a really varied, interesting and friendly evening.
