Tue19Apr201610.30 onwardsGallone's Ice Cream Parlour, Old Arcade, Bedford
Come and join Adriana for a coffee and general social chat at the lovely Gallone's Ice Cream Parlour in the Old Arcade, between High Street and Harpur Street from about 10.30am on Tuesday 19 April. It is hoped that members who are unable to attend the monthly meeting will take advantage of this chance to catch up with other Bosom Pal members, although those who do come to the meetings are also most welcome.
It is suggested that those attending wear a Macmillan daffodil so that other members can easily recognise them.
We intend to have a coffee morning once a month on a different day of the week and at a different venue, but always in Bedford town centre, for a few months to see if there are sufficient members interested in such an event.

We are planning to return to Gallone's Ice Cream Parlour in the Old Arcade, Bedford but this meet-up will be from 2pm to 3.30pm so that members who prefer to come to Bedford in the afternoon have a chance to attend. Jean is intending to be the committee member on this occasion and she hopes that lots of you will join her for a drink and general chat. Of course it will also be a chance to discuss the social events planned for the coming year and perhaps sign up and pay for any that you are interested in doing.

Wed30Nov2016Sat03Dec201610 am onwardsSt Paul's Church, Bedford
Following the wonderful success we had last year with the number of raffle tickets Bosom Pals members sold, we have been asked if we would undertake to do the same again this year. The money raised by the raffle is split between St Paul's Church and the Bedford Hospital Charity with the prizes being donated by local firms, groups and individuals.
The church is decorated with a large number of small Christmas trees, each having been decorated by various schools and organisations. During the day there are concerts from a wide variety of groups all providing magnificent music. The festival is well worth a visit even if you are unable to help on this occasion.
We are looking for volunteers to man the raffle table for the sessions which are 10-12.30, 12.30-15.00 and 15.00-17.00. If you are interested, please talk to Eve at one of our meetings.
