Good-Bye Elaine!

We gathered for our regular coffee morning this week and it doubled as a goodbye to member and English Conversation Club leader, Elaine.

It was well attended, particularly by our English Conversation Club regulars.

Thanks for all your work for the club, @elaine.pounder, safe travels, and see you soon!
