Last month our speaker Lis Dobb-Sandi gave a fascinating and extremely entertaining talk regarding her life’s adventures. This was combined with the Public Affairs Resolution brief discussion and voting on the Articles of Association and WI Constitution. All votes were carried unanimously and these votes were taken to the AGM on the 1st June, by our Representatives.
It has been a busy time for our WI of late. Our fund raising efforts at the Garden Party of over £200 were equalled by the Committee’s efforts at the Village Fete, serving tea and homemade cake, bringing a grand total of £442 for our Group. Well done to all those involved.
The Walking Group had a lovely time at Shustoke Reservoir last Saturday, it was a sunny day, with lots to see, on and off the water and everyone enjoyed a picnic afterwards. The next walk is Tuesday 25th June at 11am at the car park of the Social Club, Ousterne Lane, Fillongley.
The Book Club met last Thursday to review A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. The next book, , is now available if anyone would like a copy to read(these are loaned library books).

The Committee have spent some time deliberating trip ideas for the WI this year and we do hope that the choice will meet with your approval. We would like to offer a WI Trip to the Belgrade Theatre to see The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie, on Wednesday 6th November at 7.45pm. The Mousetrap is a murder mystery, the scene is set when a group of people in a country house, cut off by snow, discover to their horror, that there is a murderer in their midst. To celebrate 60 incredible years on stage in the West End, The Mousetrap is going on tour for the first time, with a star cast. Lifts can be arranged by the Committee. Tickets are £20 each. Please email your ticket requests or speak to us on Wednesday.
