Displaying the heart.
I had a go at the eternity weave, I did not use all the balloon length
as this made it a tighter weave with less open space.

Last picture, this is Alex, Sara's son who won the McPump in the raffle.
Louise won the pump but already had a filbert so decided to raffle it off with
proceeds going to the local school for Autism. I think over £200 was raised.

On the way to the town centre to go up the Blackpool tower, this time it was closed
due to high winds, maybe we will get to the top next year?
Then again maybe not!

We did manage to have a look inside though, that building has some history.

It was then time for bingo with my partners in crime, it was a very funny hour.
We did have a laugh.
