Our W.I. meets in the Parish Hall at 7.30pm on the second Thursday of the month. Why not come along and see what is on offer? Visitors are always welcome.
Thirty members enjoyed a delicious post Christmas lunch at the Traddock in January.
In February there was much laughter when members of Austwick W.I. surprised President Elizabeth Booth and her team with ‘Death by Chocolate’, a murder mystery evening set in Paris. A cast of nine likely suspects enacted the drama before, after, and between courses of a delicious meal of coq au vin followed by chocolate brownies and ice cream. So convincing was the acting and storyline, that only one member of the audience identified the true murderer.
The first of the W I monthly walks unfortunately had to be cancelled as storm ‘Doris’ threatened to spoil the morning. However a very pleasant lunch was enjoyed by eight of us at The Punch Bowl in Lower Bentham. Watch out for notification of the next walk.
Caroline Eames gave an interesting and enlightening talk on her work during 30 years as a Forensic Scientist. She explained the advances that have been made in forensic techniques including issues relating to cross contamination and DNA profiling.
Note the change of date for next month’s meeting. Julia Stagg will talk about her new book ‘A Date with Death’ on Thursday April 20th in the Parish Hall.
Next year’s programme promises to be varied and interesting.
