The meeting held on October 1 was an evening with Jeanette Day learning the secrets of reflexology. This gave us a sample of how to diagnose and deal with what our body tells us and was very surprising and informative. Our November meeting will be on Wednesday the fifth and the entertainment will be clay modelling, demonstrated by Julie Cully. Be prepared to try some clay handling yourselves. Materials provided.
