It was rather wet on Wednesday 9th August when eight of us met Ashton Keynes WI for our annual walk, after meeting at the Boathouse we had a delightful walk round the lake and then back to the Boathouse for lunch. Thank you to Ashton Keynes for organizing the walk and lunch, just a shame it wasn’t a better day as far as the weather was concerned.

On Monday 11th September at 7.30pm in the committee room of the Village Hall Sandy Green is coming back to do a Painting on Ceramics class with us. If you don’t want to paint, do still come along for a chat and cup of tea, visitors are also welcome to come and have a dabble at painting, you may surprise yourself.
We have a competition this month it is a Holiday Souvenir.

We are now onhttp://www.minety.net so if you lose the news letter you can catch up with us there.

Visitors are always welcome, if you are interested and don’t want to come on your own, we can always arrange to meet you on arrival or pick you up and bring you to the meeting.

Malcom Lewis stepped in at short notice as our original speaker couldn’t make it, so instead of Mindfulness and Meditation we had music and singing. Malcom made the afternoon very entertaining not only telling us about the lives of Rodgers and Hammerstein and other musical and lyrical collaborations, but he also played lots of music from the musicals that they had written, which brought back many memories for us, the songs were still going around in my head as I drove home. Thank you to Marion and Janet for delicious refreshments.

On Wednesday 11th October Di and myself travelled down to Salisbury to attend the WI Annual Council meeting, after the usual business we were entertained by two very good speakers, firstly Fred Gillam introduced us to Otzi the iceman a mummified body 5,300 years old found high up in the Alps, it was just amazing how much DNA can tell us. Our second speaker was Mandy Hickson a former RAF Tornado pilot and only one of 7 female fighter jet pilots in Britain she was both funny, interesting and inspiring. The High Sheriff of Wiltshire Lady Penny Marland also told us what her 12-month appointment entails.

Monday 13th November at 2.30pm Cherry Hubbard will treat us to a “Tudor Christmas” we won’t be tasting the food she brings, I am not sorry as I don’t think I would like to eat Swan! There will be tea and refreshments from this century as usual. We have a competition this month it is “A Christmas Decoration” for the table or hanging.

Please can anyone going to our Christmas Lunch let Wendy have your choices and money before our next meeting.

We are now onhttp://www.minety.net so if you lose the news letter you can catch up with us there.

Visitors are always welcome, if you are interested and don’t want to come on your own, we can always arrange to meet you on arrival or pick you up and bring you to the meeting.
