June 2019

Well we have had a very busy and enjoyable time in June despite the indifferent weather.

On the 6th June, as a follow on from Ian Caskie’s talk on SS Great Britain in May, a group of ladies had a day in Bristol to have a tour of the ship and take in some great restaurants for lunch.   We all enjoyed our day and even found time to dress in period costume and find a Banksy nearby.

At the evening meeting on June 10th Chris welcomed 64 members and 2 guests.  Chris directed ladies to the raffle tickets that were on sale for GFWI’s Centenary in October and after a few notices she handed over to Lorna who introduced our speaker Jacky Robertson.  Jacky gave a heartfelt, courageous and amusing tale of her journey with breast cancer from  diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

Chris reported that unfortunately due to lack of interest the August canal trip has been shelved – we are all so busy these days especially during the school holidays.

Monday 17th June saw Tetbury, Avening and Kemble & Ewen get together for our 2019 Group Meeting, with guests Jan Turner, Maggie Vinson from GFWI and speaker Caroline Lowsley-Williams who gave us a polished and hilarious talk on her life at Chavenage House during filming of the best loved period dramas for film and television.

We enjoyed great food, company and chat, the tables looked lovely with beautiful table flowers created by the Greenfingers group and heard reports form each group that outlined what a fun and busy time you can have in the WI.  We also shared a glass of fizz and had delicious cake to celebrate our 50th Anniversary with fellow group members.
