Our Speaker for the first meeting of 2018 was Karen Burge whose subject was Detoxing and Exercise.
Karen is very passionate about her subject and explained in great detail how important it is to regularly detox our bodies of impurities.
Karen is not a great believer in dieting in order to achieve weight loss as she feels the underlying causes of being overweight are much more complicated and need to be dealt with in very different ways. If consulted, Karen offers help in managing stress, mental health problems and digestive disorders.
Apart from eating the wrong foods, toxins can be taken into the body by other means and Karen stressed we must be very careful just what products we put on our skin. As we all know, one of the most important and simple things we can do is to drink lots of water.
Karen gave us a great deal to think about and she was thanked by Angela.
Subscriptions were due this month, Trish announced she was to run her Savings Club again this year and Pat presented the Financial Statement
Angela explained that although Tony Warren had printed and produced an excellent programme for our forthcoming year, Tony was not completely happy with the quality and hence made no charge, this is very generous, thankyou Tony.
Angela announced two outings
1. A performance of The Vicar of Dibley at the Octagon Yeovil
2. 12 April A visit to the racing establishment of Andrew Balding followed by a trip to Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey).
Scrabble evenings will start again and several members expressed an interest in taking part in a Kurling Competition hosted by Walton W I on Friday February 16 at Walton Village Hall.

Next month’s Speaker is Lucy Harper, subject Moringa Oleifera, the competition Something Heartshaped. It is to be hoped that more members will be able to attend if the weather improves and the flu bugs are avoided.
