April 2019

Well we thought spring was well established and now we have a brief (hopefully) cold snap!

Chris Gibson opened the meeting, welcoming 60 members and 3 guests and as we are always resourceful we had our business meeting first to allow the delayed speaker time to arrive.

Ali reported that the supper at No 65 was delicious as usual and she is now taking names for lunch at the Trouble House in May, always a popular event so get your names down soon.

Linda and Mary spoke about the Associated Country Woman of the World (ACWW) this is and international charity supported by the WI movement, it supports rural women offering support, friendship and practical help to its members and funds projects on literacy, health education, nutrition, home economics,agriculture, income generation etc.  We have in the past had collections but this year we are having raffles to raise funds.

Linda made these lovely lambs to raffle to raise funds for the ACWW

Lorna Dallimore introduced our speaker for the night – Peter McNeile – who gave us a fascinating and funny account of Steeplechase racing in Gloucestershire and the UK, for instance did you know that most jump jockeys recieve just £165 per race so not many are in it for the money!  He thoroughly recommends we visit a point to point to soak up the friendly atmosphere.



Please note the will be no Coffee at the Snooty  in April and May due to where the Bank Holidays fall.



The next meeting is on: Monday 13th May 2019  – Resolutions plus  – SS Great Britain launch to relaunch with Ian Caskie

Come along at 7:30pm to join us and meet everyone!
