Twenty-five members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI met together for their AGM in November.
The meeting started with the announcements regarding visits and events, and the news that the WI are laying a wreath at the War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday in memory of all who served in both World Wars, but especially for those men whose histories we had followed up last year after their wartime letters to the WI were found.
Julia Walton our treasurer gave a very clear explanation of our financial dealings over the past year. Valerie Robson, our secretary, and Sandra Carr, our retiring president, both gave detailed reports of our activities during the lockdowns and since resuming meetings. We now have thirty-six members.
After tea and delicious cakes Julia took us through the correct answers to three very enjoyable quiz sheets which she had prepared and members had attempted to complete. Much laughter ensued.
A bouquet was presented to Sandra, our retiring president, as thanks for her two-year tenure, and our new president Nicola Smith was welcomed.
