W I  Report - July 2005

The WI Summer Bring and Share Garden Party was held at “Stonehouse” in Baldwins Lane, Upper Tysoe, in the President’s garden, where tables and chairs were set out between illustrated signs indicating the whereabouts of interesting features.

Members kindly brought along plates of delicious savouries and sweets, which were much appreciated.  Folks assembled at 6.30 and were greeted with a drink and the first quiz entitled “Warwickshire Names”. Ann Evans syndicate(!) won what was widely agreed to be a tough one!  Another equally difficult quiz - “International Objects”, comprising 20 souvenirs from far away places including Outer Mongolia, Africa and Trinidad, were displayed and members invited to guess their uses and origins.  Christine Chapman won this one. Non-academics had a go at the clock golf on a course with several handicaps!  It was noticed that the goldfish were still intact after the visit and that the Bob Flowerdew facility remained mercifully unused!

After supper members took their seats in the Barn Theatre for a short extract taken from the Tysoe Marionette Group’s forthcoming production of Paul Gallico’s “Love of Seven Dolls”.  June Wreford thanked Ann and Jon Beeny for their hospitality.

Many thanks to all who loaned tables, assisted with setting up and washing up.

The next monthly meeting on 7th September will be “The History of Bronnley Soap Making and Much More” by Mr J. Sheppard.
