Q & A
A very warm welcome to Pat S from South Wonston. We were so sorry to take a while to welcome her as many of us thought Pat was already a member as her face seemed familiar. Do hope you enjoyed the meeting though Pat & that we see you again at the next Winchester meeting or the Chandlers Ford one on 21st May.
Louise H came along to say farewell as she & her husband are moving away from Hampshire. We wish them every happiness in their new venture. Please keep in touch & let us know how you are. Read more

Wessex Cancer Trust is starting a Walking Wednesday session on 17 April at 10.30am with a guided 40-60min walk. Please call 023 8051 6576 if you’re interested so that they have an idea of numbers.
We had the lovely Jane O’Dwyer from Amoena who gave us a short presentation on bra fitting. Bra sizes change after treatment, weight loss/gain, age, etc. Different brands and range from the same brand can fit slightly differently so Jane recommends trying on a bra before buying. The cup size for a 36B is the same as a 34C, 40D the same as 42C and so on. Jane measured and fitted a few ladies. Amoena offers a free personal bra fitting service at their showroom at 1 Eagle Close, Chandlers Ford SO53 4NF.
