Women’s Institute

There was almost a full house for our Annual Meeting on the 1st November; we even had a couple of unsuspecting visitors!  I think it must have been the offer of wine with the biscuits!

The Committee of Judy Moorey, Dottie Smith, Ruth Isaacs, Faye Williams, Sue Nicholls, Mary Benson, Melanie Roberts and Christine Serna were all re-elected and, out of that motley bunch, Mary Benson was re-elected as President for the next year.  Congratulations Mary.  We followed on after the business section of the meeting with a very light-hearted quiz.

On the 30th October a small but beautifully marked group of members visited the Viridor Recycling Unit at Ford hoping to learn more about the recycling workings of this District.  I think we all came away with a little more knowledge about the workings of the unit and marvelled at how good we looked in high viz jackets and safety helmets!

Our next meeting will be on the 6th December when it will be our Christmas Party.  This year’s is slightly different in that as it’s obviously in the middle of winter we are having a Punch & Judy Show, Oh yes we are!  We have decided that we will not be having the usual food, only mince pies, tea & coffee & mulled wine.  Please don’t forget to bring a wrapped present up to the value of £5 to go into the secret Santa raffle.

All potential members are welcome.
