It is always a nice surprise to find a room full of ladies at Stanhoe and Barwick WI meetings. Today we were told that we have 35 members this year, which is a wonderful expansion of numbers.

For our May meeting we once again welcomed Susan Barnet with a very relaxed talk entitled ”Hollywood Royalty”. With speed she regaled us with often racy tales of the lives of Hollywood screen figures such as Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Clark Gable, Vivienne Leigh, Cary Grant, Mae West, Robert Mitchum, Olivia de Havilland, David Niven, and Errol Flynn. The film lovers amongst us hearing these tales of nostalgia were royally treated throughout the talk.
Afterwards we were invited to sign up for more sedate events; a “Women Walk The World” walk on the coast, a garden visit, a meal at a local vineyard with local wine, a tour of a flower bouquet growers premises, and of course for our Jubilee Tea in June. It will be a busy summer for members.
