January WI meeting hears talk on the Pendle Witches

Natland and Oxenholme WI held their first meeting of 2015 recently. It was well attended, and one new member was introduced and welcomed.

Jean Clement was congratulated on 30 years of WI membership. President Kirsten Cannon presented a certificate in recognition of her long-standing membership.

The guest speaker for the evening was Terry Bond who gave us an informative talk on ‘The Pendle Witches’. Part of his talk concentrated on unravelling the truth behind the facts, the persecution, superstition and events that led up to trial and punishment.

The vote of thanks was given by Doris Aldworth on our behalf.

The monthly competition was won by Joan Airey with second Kirsten Cannon.

Next meeting will be Wednesday 18 February (at 7.30pm) at the Village Hall. ‘A Ranger’s Story’ is the subject of guest speaker Peter Farrand.

Visitors and new members welcome.
