Our meeting this Wednesday 20th, at 7.30pm, is a talk by PAWS veterinary practice, who are long established carers for animal health, from companion animals to farm livestock and horses.
As usual all ladies are welcome and we are offering this month’s meeting FREE to guests, so do invite friends to come along. If you have any questions for the practice please take the
opportunity at the end of the meeting to ask. The practice are kindly giving their talk and slide show free of charge but are looking forward to joining us for a drink and cake – so if anyone
would like to bake a cake, that would be much appreciated.
Our Garden Party 18th May, is only two months away. We need to start collecting items to sell: books, unwanted gifts/nearly new, homemade crafts, jam and chutney (cakes/plants nearer the time).
This is our annual fund raiser and we are inviting other WI groups and we hope to make a good impression, so please may we ask for your support. On the day we will still need to borrow garden
tables please but we do have sufficient chairs. We thought it would be nice to decorate the garden with colourful bunting (e.g. triangles) any volunteers to make some? Thank you.
At the last meeting we asked for interest in the Denman in Bloom open afternoons in April, unfortunately only 6 people expressed an interest, this was for 14th April. This being too few to organise a
trip but if those people would like to travel together then we can put you all in contact.

We had an encouraging meeting on Wednesday at the Book Club and looked at various recommended book titles. It was decided it would be best to avoid new titles purely from a cost perspective, the thinking being that we could look at these at a later date. Therefore the chosen book to read is ‘Me before you’ by Jojo Moyes with the review meeting on April 3rd at 8pm at Fillongley Social club.
Having taken WI advice regarding the club, we are pleased to inform you that it works on the same principle as the WI and is open to all ladies, either members or guests. The only cost involved is obtaining the book in whatever format you prefer. The Committee will oversee the Club and keep you all informed. Please feel free to join in.
