Saturday 6th July

Coffee at Denton Lounge 10:00 am

By popular demand, we have decided to meet each month at the Denton Lounge, rather than alternating with Munch.  As usual, no need to book but hopefully a good number of our ladies will be coming to enjoy a Saturday morning coffee and a chat


*Don’t Forget*

Worthing Pride Sunday 13th July

This year the Blueberry Muffins will be taking part in

Worthing Pride; both the parade and also the events going on in Beach House Gardens.  Parade is at 12.00 with lining up starting

from 10 am and Beach House Gardens opens at 12.00 with proceedings starting at 13.00.  Last entry to Beach House Gardens is 21.30.

Last year’s event was great fun.  This year we are going to  make a splash by wearing in our convention outfits as a smack of jellyfish. 

We have to register for the parade and buy tickets for Beach House Gardens – the parade is free and tickets for Beach House Gardens are £4.95 each.

If you would like to take part in the parade alone, or parade and beach house gardens please let Queen Jenny by return, so she can order tickets
