Meeting 13 November

At the last but one meeting of the year in November we were told the 2018 programme is almost complete and would include a good variety of speakers for us to enjoy. Two of the group meetings would be in Leigh next year, the business one on 25th July and the ordinary meeting on 26th September, two dates for your new diary! Before these another diary date planned was a lunch to celebrate our 69th birthday which would be held at Barbara Turner’s house on Saturday 3rd February. In addition final arrangements for several forthcoming events were made. These included making choices and payments for the Christmas meal on Tuesday 5th December and a suggestion to consider two first Friday lunches in December on the 1st, one in Buckland Dinham after the carol service and for those not attending this one in Leigh as usual. Sue Rodford would check numbers for the concert and book a table in the Bell at Buckland if relevant. Tickets were given out for the theatre outing to the Merlin and the carol concert in Wells.

Following the business matters we had a simple craft session led by the owners of the Hive business in Shepton. They started as a shoe repairers but these days hold a variety of stock such as fabrics, wool and other craft items, have a catering side and also run courses such as flower arranging and cake decorating. For our WI they had cut out felt shapes of angels and Christmas stockings for us to put together and decorate and add to the cracker supplied if we wished. The winner of the best effort received a voucher for a free afternoon tea.

At the meeting on Monday 11th December at 7.30pm we will have a talk entitled “Girl Cop”
