Well what a busy and enjoyable time we have had since our March meeting. A group of us went to the Royal Mint in Llantrisant, Nr Cardiff to witness the minting of the new £1 coin and mint one for ourselves. Another group of ladies travelled to London to see the “Girls” musical which is of course about the WI Calendar girls, by all reports it was a joyful, funny and poignant show.
A delicious supper was enjoyed by all who went to No. 65 and tea and cakes were on the menu when we had a trip to Jessie Smith’s farm shop for a butchery talk and tour. Four of our ladies went to the WI Fair and had a great time, they can be seen below with Janice Langley NFWI-Chair
During our April 10th Open meeting Steve Knibbs – BBC Points West, Gloucestershire reporter and his camera man Mark Leach gave us a most enjoyable insight to how our news reports reach us and how with new technology a two man team that can cover/do everything themselves when in the past it would be a fleet of vans with specialist technicians. Steve and Mark, who are both Gloucestershire born and bred, demonstrated their love for news gathering with some amusing anecdotes of their asignments and other more serious story’s which they treated very respectfully. Steve encouraged two of our members to take part in a news report which was great fun and not as easy as he makes it look, Mark then edited the footage into a short and funny report. It was a very good evening with many members commenting how much they enjoyed it.
The next meeting is on: Monday 8th May 2017 – Resolutions (plus !!)
Come along at 7:30pm to meet everyone!
