June 2023

President Julie Andrews welcomed thirty-nine members and one guest (who is now a member) to the June meeting. Apologies were accepted from members unable to attend the meeting. Hortense Oates was thanked for the flowers for the President’s table and tea hostesses Frances Banks and Tricia Heath were also thanked. The record of the May meeting was approved and signed.

WI diaries are available to order from Daphne Gazeley. Following the sale of Denman College free courses will be available online for members; see MYWI for details.

Both the sales table, this month selling plants and the raffle were busy. Thanks go to Barbara, Diane and Cynthia’s for all their efforts.

With the business all done and dusted we settled back to enjoy tea/coffee and cake and catching up with friends old and new.

After the raffle had been drawn Kay Hygate took centre stage to lead us through the making of crowns. As ever Kay was very organised and ably assisted by Mandy Elson.

What followed was an hour of concentration, laughter, chatting and fun.

The results were magnificent!

Jackie Vickerman gave the vote of thanks which was heartily endorsed by all the members.

The tables were then re-arranged so that 27 members could enjoy a delicious Ploughman’s’ Lunch. Thanks go to Elisa and her team. Click here to see the photos
