Meeting on Monday 8 January 2018

This will be an Open Meeting - please ask friends, partners, neighbours if they would like to join us for the evening.

The speaker will be Rev Clive Fairclough, the new Vicar of Mells, talking on
His Life & Adventures before he became a Vicar.

Meeting 11 December


We were already getting ready for the coming year at the December meeting with the tea rota to check to make sure we were free on our allotted day and volunteers needed to sign up for thanking the speakers.  Names and money were being taken for the visit to Shepton prison on January 13th, we had a reminder about the WI birthday lunch at Barbara Turner’s house on Sat February 3rd and were given advance warning of the annual village clean up which would be on Sat 3rd March.

Two WI issues to address in January. The suggestions for the Resolutions were in the current WI Life and we were asked to fill in our choice on the slip there to bring to the January meeting. Also at that meeting we should bring our subs for the coming year which have gone up slightly to £41.

The talk called “Girl Cop” was given by Sandy Osborne, the author of a fiction book of the same name and its follow up. Sandy was still a serving police officer in Bath and had based her stories on the area including her own real life experiences. She told us how her writing career started and how difficult it had been to get published and read us extracts from both the book and some of her writing for magazines.

The next meeting will be on Monday January 8th at 7.30pm
