W I  Report

At our March meeting Gill Ashley-Smith, assisted by Peter as projectionist, gave us a fascinating insight into life in Kineton during the First World War years.  This started in the War Memorial and included the fund raising and running of the VAD hospital, the influences of the hunt on the prosperity of the village, the Willoughby Brokes and Fieldens, and the formation of the WI in 1917.

After delicious refreshments served by Ruth Fothergill and Kath Silman, we were entertained by Belinda Keep who showed us finger puppets, tabards and story bags needed for the Early Years Project Lending Library at Bishopton School, Stratford..  We became children aged 3-5 again and laughed a lot, as she told the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and the Giant.  She encouraged members to get busy sewing and knitting for the Craft Section of the Spring Show in May, handed out patterns and kindly arranged a couple of sewing afternoons at her house.

The next meeting on Wednesday, 6th April at 7.30 pm will be “Local Cheesemaking” by Mr D. Fowler.
