November 2017

We had an attendance of over 50 ladies for our Annual Meeting 13th November 2017, verbal reports were given by  Chris (President) Anne (Secretary) and Pam (Treasurer) and representatives from our many groups told us about this years activities which make you want to join them all!   We welcomed two new members to the committee – Sally & Jennifer, both ladies took up the offer to attended a committee meeting to see what it was like and then kindly volunteered to help.

After the formal business was over we enjoyed drinks and nibbles and we had our own version of ‘pet hates’,  each table had lively discussions about what irritated us and popular subjects were grammar, parking, brexit, TV adverts.  We had a good laugh as each table shared their ‘pet hates’ with the whole group.

Jan organised a trip to see the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain in Cheltenham which was a great success and the reviews were fabulous.   Those lucky enough to be able to attend enjoyed Sally’s Gin Night and tasted some delightful gins from England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales.   Linda held a workshop creating beautiful marzipan fruits for Christmas gifts.

Great fun on the 'Gin Night'

Deep concentration whilst making marzipan fruits.

We have a Christmas meal at the Hare and Hounds to look forward to at the end of the month and rumour has it that we may be having our own and very first Tetbury WI Ukulele ‘Orchestra’ performance during our December meeting.

The next meeting is on: Monday 11th November – Cyder & Vinegar –  a talk and samples from Aspall of Suffolk – plus our usual Christmas festivities .  Come along at 7:30pm to meet everyone!

A note from our President:

Apart from our monthly meetings, we enjoy each other’s company at many “extra curricular” activities.  Do have a look at “What we do”.

We always welcome new ideas and new members.  Please come along and meet us.
