Eaton Bray WI Report
Posted on September 8, 2008
Our President welcomed the members and one visitor to our September meeting, and apologies were received from several people who are still on holiday. The minutes were read and signed. Jerusalem was sung before we got down to business.
Our summer coffee morning raised £125 for our funds, and the summer outing to Wisley Gardens was thoroughly enjoyed by all who went on the trip.
Several social evenings are planned one will be our harvest supper in October, followed by the Dunstable Group autumn meeting which will be hosted by Dunstable Downside WI.
An invitation has been received from Studum WI for Eaton Bray to join them for an autumn outing and canal cruise.
The WI Croquet tea party held at Hockliffe raised £600 for the McMillan Nurses.
We welcomed our speaker Mel Rees. Mel is an author, who, over the past nineteen years has written and self published four titles three of which have been autobiographical and one a novel and has also written and narrated a 'look at life' talking book, he has been giving talks for the past six years that look at the characterisations and situations from everyday life in a very humorous way.
Mel was very entertaining and extremely funny with his observations of people and everyday situations his talk was chatty and light-hearted and similar in style of the TV show 'Grumpy Old Men'.
Our next meeting is Monday 6th October at 7.30pm in Eaton Bray Village Hall friends and new members are always very welcome for more information contact (01525) 221185.
