July Meeting

The talk today was by Alex Stanbrook on the History of Hats. She had brought a number of hats with her to illustrate the talk. It was really enjoyed by members who requested that she return next year..

After the fun of yesterday, 9 of us met up at the Plaisterers for lunch. Another great meal eaten outside as it was such a lovely day. We all enjoy eating out together and getting to know each other a little better..

The 95th Celebrations

The knot garden at Sudeley
We are celebrating the 95th anniversary of our WI. Officially in November we decided to celebrate in the summer, and where better than at Sudeley Castle as Marion Dent Brocklehurst from Sudeley started our WI in 1919

The sun shone for our event, starting with a coach ride to the Castle. We were greeted by coffee/tea and a talk by Jean Bray on Emma Dent. Then we had time to tour the Castle before lunch.

The lunch was very good, hot and tasty, and the dessert was a celebration in itself. On to look at the gardens before a short service of thanksgiving in St Mary's Church, taken by Julia Hook, vicar at St Peter's, Winchcombe.

Then time to wander back to the coach and time to indulge in a little retail therapy. An excellent day of celebration...
