This is the 16th ‘News’ that I have written and this will be my last. I have really enjoyed passing on all the information to you and thank you for all the lovely items you have delivered to the Chantry; the plants, cutlery, mugs, tea sets and items for our fair. I am going to concentrate on writing my book about my Sepsis to help people understand it and recognise the symptoms; to tell my story and how I taught my husband to cook! Thank you for supporting our events and I hope to see you all at our Collectors and Craft Fair on 8th December. Fear not, Kate will continue to write the ‘News’. I wish you all a Peaceful and Happy Christmas and Enjoyable New Year.
