With our annual August outing to Fromebridge Mill where we had a delicious meal it was back to normal in September.   It was agreed that the Group Meeting with the cruise ship theme was impressive and had been thoroughly enjoyed,  Unfortunately in the second round of the GFWI Quiz our team hadn’t done too well and missed a place by just a few points. After the usual business we watched a film by the Gloucester Film Makers showing scenes of Gloucestershire life from the 1930s to the 1980s that included the 1947 floods when milk was delivered by boat rather than by horse, a visit by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh and a film taken at the cattle market which is now where the bus station stands.   We were reminded of a time when the main streets were crowded with cars, lorries and buses, colourful entries in the Gloucester Carnival, the dangerous cheese rolling and Frampton sausage and elver eating contests!  It was a wonderful reminder of what life was like in Gloucester for a lot of our members.  The history theme carries on in October when our speaker will be telling us about High Street Histories which we hope will be just as interesting and enjoyable and the competition is “a Royal Souvenir”.

 

Visitors and new members will be made very welcome at our meetings that are held at 7.30pm on the

second Wednesday of every month at Quedgeley Village Hall. Further details can be found on our
