    Sorry, but I couldnīt bottle this any longer have been waiting on Izy to come on the Board but she hasnīt so I have just GOT to tell you all.

    Today we heard that when Rachel (who started this club)went to tell the Mayor we had raffled the quilt and were going to give the monies collected to 2 Childrens Homes here in Spain and could he please present the quilt to our Winner, he said of course. However he then went on to tell Rachel that two of his ladies who work in the Town Hall went to our show and took pictures, they showed him the pics and he was so impressed it has been organised that instead of just presenting the quilt in the local town hall they are going to present it at Torre del Mar Town Hall AND we are having the TV, Radio and newspapers there to. Isnīt that just the "bees knees". We are all really thrilled.

    Elle :D :D :D :D

    Sadly Mary, donīt think so, but will put the write up we have in the newspaper on here if I can possibly do it so you can all have a read (it will be in English).
