Debby Horsman, the speaker at our September Meeting, gave us a new insight into Shackleton’s intended, but ill prepared, Atlantic Expedition in 1914. She concentrated on the support operation which was to provide supplies to the second leg of the Expedition. It was an interesting evening and we were joined by several “WI Husbands”!
The Meeting on October 3rd is our AGM at which we hope to see as many members as possible. The Meeting will be followed by a games evening, which usually produces a great deal of laughter.
On Saturday, October 5th at 7.30pm in the Village Hall the WI are holding a Quiz Evening. The tables will be for 6 people, the cost is £7.50 per person and will include a hot supper – but please bring your own drinks and glasses. I know it will be a good evening and we hope you can join us. Tables can be booked by ringing me on 01327 340101 or our President, Pat Essery, on 01327 340682.
Looking ahead to November our speaker will be Helen Frost and she will be telling us about the Women’s Land Army.
