Womens InstituteOur President Deirdrea Ellins welcomed members to our January meeting, after singing a rousing Jerusalem it was down to business.

A thank you letter has been received from the Luton NHS Trust thanking the Eaton Bray WI for the Christmas hamper and gifts sent for the long-term mentally ill patients.

A number of social invitations have been received to join our friends in the Dunstable Group of WI's and a number of outings have already been arranged.

We are sad to hear that one of our members is seriously ill and in hospital. A card is to be sent wishing her a speedy recovery back to good health.

We welcomed our speaker Paul Marsden from the trading standards department who showed us a video on how to deal with bogus doorstep callers. He then spoke about our consumer rights. This was followed by a question and answer session.

Paul gave us all a calendar with useful tips and phone numbers on dealing with unwanted callers.

Our evening concluded with the committee performing their mini comic version of Dick Whittington. Our very own Sheila Beal rounded off the proceeding with a hilarious monologue on the subject of Christmas.

Our next meeting is on 6th February at 7.30pm in Eaton Bray Village Hall; new members and friends are very welcome.
