May 2022

After an early start and a brief business meeting, the chosen resolution was briefly discussed and voted upon.

A fashion show by N.V.Her from Warwick followed. This had been postponed because of Covid and made an entertaining change to our usual talk. Clothes from various fashion houses were displayed by models from the shop who wore clothes suitable for holidays and evening events as well as day time wear.

A mini bus full of ladies took a trip to Malvern for the Spring Show in perfect weather for wandering a very busy show ground. Wonderful displays of plants, interesting gardens and lots of choice of garden accessories tempted them to buy, but lack of space on the bus prevented them from purchasing statuary, trees and water features. It was a very enjoyable day so thanks to the two Sheilas for organising it.

Next month we will be celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on our Members' Night on 2nd June, 7pm in the Memorial Hall. There will be Food and Fizz for all but bring a bottle if you want a second drink or third or even a fourth. It is a celebration after all!

Tickets are £6 from Angela on 624758.

APRIL 2022 :

Our postponed New Year Dinner proved to be a great success although several members were unable to attend due to catching Covid. Ironic, as the reason we postponed it was that we were worried about catching Covid in January!

A lovely meal was followed by some daft entertainment by the committee and music by a couple of ukelele playing members, and other members told jokes.

A group of members was made very welcome by Norton Lindsey W.I. at a Group meeting. A tasty supper was followed by a talk by Ginny Davis. She talked of how she became an actress and writer and performed several of her sketches.

Our April meeting was a talk by Dave Bonnar from a charity called Bees Around the World who told us how bees are making a real difference to rural poverty in Uganda. He and his wife train poor villagers how to build bee hives and look after the bees. The bees pollinate their crops which become more productive and better quality, thus raising more money when they are sold in the local markets. The honey is mostly sold to the hospitals where it is used medicinally and the wax is made into polish, hand cream and lip balm which is also sold.

Villages which have taken part in this scheme have seen a considerable rise in living standards, all because of small insects and a lot of work by their keepers. Inspirational!

Several ladies planted two apple trees in the village orchard to replace two which have died due to hungry rabbits and deer. These trees will become part of the Queen’s Green Canopy to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

Our February meeting was a lot of fun when Jean Wroe brought along antique items for teams of four to attempt to value. Things ranged from a Roman coin to a top hat, to a railwayman's whistle and whilst some values were way off beam, others were pretty accurate. There was a tie breaker at the end and the winning team (Acorn Antiques) won a large box of chocolates which they kindly passed around.

The WI archive team have been working hard to finish putting together the Centenary Diary which was due to be finished in 2020 but due to the Covid restrictions, has been somewhat delayed. Hopefully we won't have to wait much longer to see their hard work. Two of the team will retire after completion so we are looking for new members to take up the baton.

The year started with a disappointment as the New Year Dinner was postponed because of the new Covid strain.

However the first meeting of the year, a Beetle Drive, organised by Cindy Cook, was great fun and provided some hilarity as some people had never played before. Plenty of tasty canapes, produced by the committee and a glass of fizz were served and a friendly and sociable evening started the W.I. year.
