W.I. Meeting Report for May

President Marion Want welcomed 30 members to the meeting.  She thanked Marcell Tatham for the table flowers and the members of the committee for dressing in period costume to mark the centenary of women’s suffrage. President Marion then welcomed Doris Aldworth who spoke about the formation of the WI and the history of resolutions and campaigns the WI had passed over the last 100 years.  Committee member Jean Heseltine then introduced an interesting quiz on various WI resolutions over the years and members had to guess which decade they had been voted on.  This provided some lively discussion.  Thanks were expressed to Doris and Jean for their help. A buffet supper was provided by members of the committee.The competition for a Gingerbread Person was won by Jean Heseltine with Hilary Atkinson second.  The monthly raffle was won by Anne Bonney. Date of next meeting is Wednesday 20 June at 7.15pm in Natland Village Hall when the speaker will be Debra Jessett on Hatches, Matches and Despatches.
