Due to the inclement weather there were several apologies for the meeting held on 5th December. At the conclusion of WI business and notices president Dorothy Wain introduced the speaker for the evening, Mr John Hall, whose talk was entitled Christmas Now and Then.
It was non-stop laughter for the duration of his talk as he relayed hilarious anecdotes of his own past Christmases. Mrs Jean Bates thanked Mr Hall for his wonderfully lighthearted talk.
The competition for an old Christmas decoration was won by Mrs Mary Shaw with Mrs Dorothy Wain and Mrs Margaret Wood second and third. Raffle prizes were won by Mrs Ann Cook, Mrs Cynthia Winder, Mrs Margaret Wilson and Mrs Dorothy
There will be no meeting in January, the next one is on 6th February 2014.
