ILLNESS - If someone in the WI is unwell we feel it would be a nice idea for us to show our sympathy and support but we rely on members keeping us informed. Please see Julie or any member of the committee if you know of anyone.

LITTLE ACTORS – Sue Kendal will give a brief talk about this charity tonight.

BURSARY – There was only 1 applicant for the bursary so it will be awarded tonight.

PREVIOUSLY:

VINTAGE TEA – Thanks to all those who came. We were treated to home made cakes and delicious sandwiches. The Lady Mayor also appeared to enjoy the event. Many thanks to those who helped out on the day. It would have been great to have had more of our members supporting us but despite that we raised £105 from sales and £97 from the raffle and tickets.

BIRTHDAY DINNER – This was enjoyed by all with only positive feedback and the book tokens were much appreciated. A lovely surprise.
