May 2019

Chris opened our meeting to over 60 members and 2 new members.   She informed us about the group meeting on the 17th June – we will share the evening with Avening and Kemble & Ewen WI’s with supper and a speaker.  We also voted on the WI resolutions and Anne Weston will pass them onto GFWI.

Lorna Dallimore introduced our speaker for the night – Ian Caskie who gave us a lively and fascinating talk about the SS Great Britain, it was enjoyed by all and those ladies booked to go and take a tour around the ship in June are in for a treat.

A big thank you to all the members who either baked items or donated to our cake stall at the Wacky Races in Tetbury on Monday May 6th.  We raised the grand sum of £281.60 which will be added to our funds.

Congratulations to Pauline Bishton and Jan Yates who have had their photographs selected to be in the 2020 GFWI calendar.

We raised £211 for ACWW following April’s sale of lambs ‘by Linda’ and this months 50/50 raffle.

17 of the 21 new members who have joined  throughout the last year were able to come along to Linda Sheen’s on the 20th May for drinks and nibbles and to meet the committee, it was lovely finding out more about them and their routes to Tetbury WI.
