February Meeting

WI members are hardy souls; forty members and three visitors braved the cold and ice to attend yesterday's meeting.  They were entertained by Lucy Allen with a fascinating talk on her life as a stuntwoman working in television and films, including the recent Bond movie.  Her early working life included a spell in a circus and even - in order to obtain her Equity card - work as an exotic dancer in Istanbul.  She was thanked for her talk by Rene Hoad.

This month's competition was for a limerick, and was won by Beth Graham with the following:-

After tea and biscuits, the raffle was drawn and Birthday flowers were presented to nine members.  The President told members that the next meeting on 13 March, which should have been Members Day, would be an informal afternoon with readings etc.  The competition is for a decorated mug.
