At this month’s meeting of the W.I. Anne Chambers thanked all members who had helped to make last month’s birthday celebration so successful. Carol Turner gave a report on the recent Federation meeting and the 95th Birthday Certificate was shown. Gemma Watts said that the next Craft Club will meet on 13th May when there will be a demonstration of knitted silver bracelets. There was a unanimous vote in favour of the resolution which said it was most important to let your next-of-kin know your wishes about donating organs after death.
Member, Natalie Jolly, assisted by husband Keith, showed pictures of her holiday cruising along the Yangtze River in China. This was very informative and interesting and Valerie Gobie thanked them.
Refreshments were served by Gill Jolley and Suzanne Tucker.
There were many entries in the competition which was judged by Steve Tilsley. The top score of 19 points was given to Margaret Neesom. The winners of the raffle were Carole Garcia, Margaret Playford, Pauline Wheeler, Mavis Gamsby, Gemma Watts and Natasha Apps.
Next month’s speaker will be Linda Ingram from FACET and will be held in the chapel or next door in Gemma Watts’ garden if the weather is fine. Refreshments will be ice cream and scones and jam. The competition will be something interesting beginning with “P”. New members are always welcome.
