W I  Report

This month was the Womenís Institute Spring Show and also Resolution Meeting to which Marie Coleman, the newly elected Chairperson of the Warwickshire Branch of WI, was welcomed by our President.

Mrs Coleman put forward Resolutions to be presented at the AGM in the Albert Hall, London in June and after lively discussion our own WI put forward their preferred option.  More about this after the June meeting in London.

The other main attraction of the evening was the Spring Show, which made a wonderful display in the Methodist Hall.  The four categories were cookery, preserves, floral and crafts/miscellaneous.

The judges for each category came from other WIs and had been nominated from County, which made for a late evening for them, and we thank them for their help.

Presentations were made to each of the prize winners in the different categories, and then to the Overall Winner, Mrs Belinda Keep, who was presented with the Sheila Brinkley Rosebowl.  I must make a special mention here of Belindaís work, it was wonderful to see and very well done, in particular all the craftwork items.  It was obvious that she had made a real effort.

In second place was Mrs Ann Beeney, and third was Mrs Kath Silman but all entries were winners in their own way.  Well done to everyone for their efforts.

Refreshments for the evening were provided by Mrs R Richards and Mrs A Evans, and the meeting closed at 10 p.m.

Donít forget that Keep Fit will be in the Village Hall on Thursdays at 10.30 a.m.  All welcome.
