WI logoOur September meeting, held in Eaton Bray Methodist Hall, was well attended.  During the month of August members had enjoyed a lovely Afternoon Tea at Helen's House.  Scones, tea and cakes were served in lovely sunshine.  A good sum had been raised which would be shared between the Chairman's Challenge for Denman and towards the EBWI 90th Birthday Party  on Thursday 17th November.

The minutes of the previous meeting and notices were read.  The speaker for the meeting was Paul Heley who gave a very informative talk on Chasing Polar Bears.  This was based on his trip to Spitzbergen, which is 500 miles from the North Pole.  During the trip, besides seeing the polar bears, he was inspected by seals, ignored by strange walruses and saw the Svalbard reindeers.  Paul explained how dangerous polar bears can be.  A scout would be sent out at each stop to check if they were in the area.

Members were reminded of the group Autumn meeting on Friday 23 September at Baptist Hall, Caddington at 7.30pm.  The speaker will be William Ashley Norman who is a wire sculptor.  A Craft Fair will be held at Flitwick Village Hall on Sunday 30th October.

The next meeting of Eaton Bray WI will be on Monday 3rd October when Wendy Austin will be talking on the subject of Ashridge House and the Brownlows.

Meetings are always  the first Monday of the month (except Bank Holiday when it is the second Monday). The Meetings commence at 7.30 pm and are held in Eaton Bray Methodist Hall. The contact for Eaton Bray WI is:  Margaret Jones.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits new members.  At each meeting there is an interesting speaker or demonstration, followed by social time and refreshments.
