Women’s Instutute – October 2014

85th bday1 85th bday2 85th Bday3 85th bday4 85th bday5 85th bday6No formal meeting this month as we were celebrating our 85th birthday. We were joined by

Margaret Biggs the County Chairman, W I Advisor Sandy, Marion Hicks a past President and our group W I’s with special guests, Somerton W I and Bucklers Mead W I.

Trish Cox welcomed us and we enjoyed an excellent buffet supper prepared by the committee members. A birthday cake, made by Mrs Mary Burt was cut by Mary as our longest serving member. A toast was drunk and the cake distributed.

Mrs Margaret Adams, a welcome return speaker, told of her continuing hectic Life with the Boss – hilarious tales of being a farmer’s  wife – Margaret is always very well received and she did not let us down.

Scrapbooks lovingly constructed by Sheila Taylor were on display and Mrs Mary Burt read the very first meeting minutes to be recorded.

Games quizzes raffle kept us busy and the evening continued with entertainment, introduced by Kathy, supplied by Sally Walker who sang and read her own composition.

A slight technical hitch with the music did not detract from a very clever display of dancing from our very own Monochromes. Kathy then drew our evening to a close and everyone joined in the singing of the National Anthem which concluded a very memorable 85th birthday party.

Skittles: We have played two league matches against Woolavington and Ashcott and managed to win both – we also won our cup  round against Allerton. Next match November 21 at the Ring of Bells Ashcott via Middlezoy.

Our next meeting will be on November 12 when the speaker will be Rosemary Leaf whose subject is Osteoporosis.

The competition is a Photo of Wildlife.

Please remember to bring money for the Christmas meal preferably in a named envelope.

Wendy Edwards.
