Greetings YEI members
Well, it’s a wrap for August 2017
Only 116 days till Christmas! Can you believe that eight months of 2017 is now done and dusted, and that we are 2/3 of the way through the year. So time to relax, make a cup of tea or coffee and take some downtime and read through the interesting articles in the YEI newsletter. And don’t forget to share some of those articles with your family or friends, and encourage them to subscribe to YEI.

YEI reader needing information
A 81-year old YEI reader has contacted us to advise that she has a collection of beautiful dolls that she would like to donate in her will to a museum that has a doll room. We have contacted one museum that has not responded to our query. Any thoughts from YEI readers?
YEI – What’s On
We invite you to browse through the What’s On guide to see what is on during the next month.
This week’s highlight in What’s On:
Well, this might be a bit off the wall for some, but if you have not been to a belly dance show before, why not book a ticket and see what it’s all about… Who knows – you might be a convert once you have seen the show, and might want to try belly dancing – an excellent and a bucket-load-of-fun way to get fit!!
