Members of Blyton W.I enjoyed a social evening when they sat down to celebrate harvest with a seasonal ploughman’s supper served by the committee. Business was dealt with before the supper. Special congratulations were offered to Ann Murday whose poem about autumn won the competition for Blyton at the recent Cliffside Group meeting. Members were informed about the annual carol service, to be held this year at Blyton on 5th December and given advance notice of the spring council meeting at Skegness on 26th March. Prior to the supper, members were given a picture quiz. Locally grown produce and home baked food was on the menu and a bring and buy stall raised funds for the institute. The 100 Club draw was won by Gill Birkitt and an abundance of raffle prizes meant that Gill Birkitt, Ennis Redfearn, Sheila Solomon, Ann Murday and Barbara Roberts all took home a prize. The competition this month was for a flower arrangement in a wine glass and was won by Sheila Solomon with Jenny Booth in second place. The next meeting will be on Thursday 21st November when the speaker will be Mr Bob Shorthose whose talk will be entitled There’s more to Norfolk than broads and turkeys.
