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.
Members and friends were taken on a ‘pub crawl’ at their January meeting courtesy of Alan Hemsworth. Alan gave a humorous, informative and fascinating illustrated talk on ‘Inn Signs’ concentrating on ancient and modern signage.
At the end of January 22 members enjoyed a belated Christmas Lunch at The Traddock.
In February, members thanked the Committee for their hard work during the year by organising an evening’s entertainment and refreshments. Heather Slater gave a very interesting talk about her life as a nanny to the children of Prince Alwaleed in Saudi Arabia. At the time she lived in his Palace and met several celebrities as well as caring for the young Prince and Princess.The evening concluded with a light buffet and drinks which had been organised by Kathleen Morphet.
Roger Moore was the guest speaker at the March meeting. He talked about his passion for bridges, their structure and construction, not only concentrating on those in the locality but as far away as the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The next meeting on Thursday April 12th in the Parish Hall will be a talk and demonstration about bread entitled ‘The Staff of Life’.
