W.I. Report for June

       Guest speaker, Ian Potts enthralled members of Natland and Oxenholme W.I. with humorous tales of his life as a musician. Joining the Army as a boy Soldier, he was given a clarinet to play in the band, and continued in life with an orchestral career.

The competition for a musical box was won by Caroline Lawson, second Lynn Pritchard.
