Women Walk The World (and a few men!)

On Sunday 26th April, we joined 70 other countries to take part in the ACWW "Women Walk The World".  11 walkers, including 3 visitors from Buckland Dinham WI, left the memorial Hall for a walk around the quarry bund.

Were they waiting for the ladies, or couldn't keep up?
This was followed by welcome tea and a selection of cakes back at Mary's, where it even stayed bright enough to stay outside.

April Meeting

Rotas and Roulade - Institute Meeting Monday 13th April

Margaret Loten chaired the meeting for us in April when once again there was a lot of business to get through including several appeals for help. These included requests for cakes for the Women Walk the World event on Sun 26th April, for a WI stall at Glastonbury and of course for our own stall at the Leigh Fete in June, see minutes online for other events members can help with. 

The meeting on the 11th May is our AGM and discussion of the resolution. Mary would be e-mailing details of this and the committee asked for 2 volunteers to speak for and against the motion. It was suggested we come along in the costume of our favourite decade and we were reminded that the committee provide both the refreshments and entertainment at the AGM.

The first Friday lunch in April at the Waggon and Horses only had a small turnout but was much enjoyed by those who came. Margaret suggested alternating different venues with the Bell and would email us nearer the date of the next one.

Our speaker, Rachel Middleton, told us how she started and developed her Pudding Kitchen business and made a meringue roulade which we all enjoyed tasting.

As mentioned above the next meeting will be our AGM on Monday 11th May at 7.30pm.
