We are coming into July now and that means its time for the Clubhouse newsletter to be released! This month is a bumper packed edition with a variety of articles in it. We have some pieced on things our members have done, some creative writing and personal writing too. Our front cover is emblazoned with a photo for Junefest event in the Newbridge community centre that some of our members attended. There was a huge crowd with lots going on, we had a lot of fun.

We have a piece on the Junefest going on on our front cover, some very enjoyable events were had with Junefest! We have a jokes corner where some over our members get to express their sense of humour. We have a section by Paul C about a lovely picnic by the river. We have two poems in this edition, one entitled “My Garden” and the other a birthday poem for Lydia.
