Weston Favell Evening WI

 

The May meeting was started with a minute's silence in memory of Terry Lever who sadly died recently.

Diane thanked all the members for being so prompt with their subs this year and Annette was pleased to announce that we now have over 60 members and only a couple are still oustanding.

The theme for the Sheila Laverick Trophy for 2024 was announced - this year we would like a photo - no larger than 7x5 showing 'Something Special in my Garden'. Lots of scope so get the phone or camera out - entries to be in by the September meeting, results will be announced at the October meeting.

There are several new events are being organised by the Federation so the boards are ready for  to sign up. As we are having a 75th Anniversary Tea on June 17th the tickets were on sale during the evening. Costing 1 each these will actually be your raffle ticket for the afternoon too. For this event we are asking everyone to bring along a plate with either savoury or sweet finger food which can be added to the buffet table for our tea. Don't worry tickets and the board for signing up will be available next month too - so no panic!! We also hope to have lots of photo albums and other memorabilia for members to look at.

We then heard details of the resolution being taken to the Annual Meeting. After some disussion and comments, the resolution regarding the need for more investment in Dental Health and the provisionof Dentists, was passed unanimously and this outcome will be taken to the Albert Hall in June.
After this quite serious section, Diane and Roz, ably supported by other committee members, provided some amusing poems, monologues and jokes after which - tea and cake.
